Bio For: Amy Poehler
(The Latest Available Bio)

With an impressive body of work that encompasses film and television, AMY POEHLER (Voice of Jenny) has quickly emerged as one of Hollywood's most versatile and sought after talents. Poehler currently stars on the critically-acclaimed NBC comedy series, Parks and Recreation, from producers Greg Daniels and Mike Schur (The Office). She plays Leslie Knope, a mid-level bureaucrat in the Parks and Recreation Department of Pawnee, Indiana. The show received an Emmy nomination for "Outstanding Comedy Series" in 2011. In 2013, Poehler received her fourth consecutive "Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series" nomination and a Golden Globe nomination for "Best Performance by an Actress in a Comedy Series." She served as co-host of the Golden Globe Awards in January 2013 with Tina Fey, helping to earn the program an Emmy nod for Outstanding Special Class Program.

Poehler is also a producer and host of the online series, Smart Girls at the Party, that showcases real girls who are changing the world by being themselves. After her much buzzed about portrayal of Senator Hillary Clinton during the 2008 Presidential Election, Poehler completed her eighth and final season of Saturday Night Live (and her fifth as the co-anchor of "Weekend Update"). Renowned as "a brilliantly inventive sketch comedian," (Entertainment Weekly, 11/05), Poehler boasted an impressive arsenal of outrageous characters, from the hyperactive "Caitlin" and one-legged reality show contestant "Amber" to a manic host of Good Morning Meth. Poehler also contributed memorable impressions of Kelly Ripa, Avril Lavigne, Sharon Osbourne, Paula Abdul, Sharon Stone and Michael Jackson. That year she received her first Emmy nomination for "Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series" for her work on Saturday Night Live. Due to a change in eligibility, this was an unprecedented nomination making her the first performer in SNL history to land a spot in this category. She went on to receive a second nomination in this category for her work on her final season the following year.

Poehler was recently heard lending her voice as "Eleanor" in Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel. In 2008, she starred opposite Tina Fey in Universal Pictures' hit comedy Baby Mama and starred in the ice-skating comedy Blades of Glory, alongside Will Ferrell, Will Arnett, and Jon Heder in 2007. She previously voiced characters in the animated films Monsters vs. Aliens and Horton Hears a Who! and played 'Snow White" in the box office smash hit Shrek the Third. Her other feature credits include Mean Girls, Spring Breakdown, Mr. Woodcock, Southland Tales, Tenacious D in The Pick of Destiny, The Ex, Wet Hot American Summer, and Envy. Poehler joined the SNL cast from the Upright Citizens Brigade, a sketch/improv troupe originally formed in Chicago. Poehler and the U.C.B. relocated to New York where they had a sketch show on Comedy Central for three seasons on which she was both a writer and performer. In addition, they opened a theater currently regarded as the premiere sketch/improv comedy venue in New York City. Poehler and the U.C.B. were featured in 22 "A.S.S.S.S.C.A.T.: Improv" an improvised comedy special on Bravo. Poehler has made memorable appearances on television ranging from Arrested Development, Wonder Showzen and Undeclared. She also was a voice on O'Grady and The Simpsons.
