Amy Poehler
Amy Poehler is a Burlington, Mass. native whose career in comedy began in Chicago with improv groups like Second City and the Upright Citizens Brigade. After moving to NYC, Amy had a recurring bit part on "Late Night with Conan O'Brien," until she landed a spot as a featured player on "Saturday Night Live." She was promoted to a full regular less than six months later, becoming the second performer in "SNL" history to earn a field promotion mid-season, later replacing Jimmy Fallon as a "Weekend Update" co-anchor.

During her time there, she received two Emmy nominations for Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy. Amy has starred with fellow "SNL" cast members in films such as "Mean Girls," "Blades of Glory," "Shrek the Third" and "Baby Mama."

In 2009, she returned to TV on NBC's "Parks and Recreation," for which she's received six Emmy nominations (Best Actress in a Comedy, Best Writing - Comedy, and Best Comedy). Amy can be heard in the upcoming film "Free Birds," and will return with Tina Fey to host the Golden Globes next year for the second time.
