We love Amy Poehler’s website Smart Girls At The Party, which aims to inspire and empower teen girls, so we’re super excited for the launch of Smart Girls’ new series, “Ask Amy.” In the series, Amy answers reader emails while lounging on the bed like the cool aunt we always wished we had. The first question comes from a 14-year-old who wants to know how to feel pretty when her dad won’t let her wear makeup. Watch the video to hear Amy’s thoughtful answer! [YouTube]
Amy Poeher, comedy goddess that she is, can’t not say funny stuff at all times. During a recent talk at the 92nd Street Y, Poehler answered a few questions from Tumblr users, like “What makes Will Arnett cry?” and “What’s the first time you remember making people laugh?” Also, Poehler recommends we all make out to the new Usher song “Climax,” which she guarantees will be a future strlp club hit. No doubt.
Remember Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day? Well that’s Amy Poehler’s life, according to this hilarious interview on the new IFC show, “Comedy Bang Bang.” Created by one of the guys who invented “Between Two Ferns With Zach Galifianakis,” “Bang Bang” features host Scott Aukerman and musician/comedian Reggie Watts, who is literally everywhere these days. Also, check out Amy’s sweet hairdo, guys. She’s looking mighty fly. (Psst, this episode also features a special song from Will Forte!) [Cinema Blend]
This weekend, politicians and D-list celebs like Caroline Manzo hobnobbed at “nerd prom” aka the White House Correspondents’ Dinner, but if I could have had my pick, I would have gone to the Comedy Awards instead. Tons of funny and fine-lookin’ ladies were in attendance; we know they brought the jokes, but did they bring it in the fashion department as well? Let’s find out…
It’s no secret that Leslie Knope is one of our favorite characters on TV. She’s smart, funny, ambitious, loyal, and endlessly committed to her town, her friends, and her job. Her wardrobe of grey suits, tie-front blouses, simple jewelry, and sensible shoes isn’t exactly high fashion, but it’s actually a pretty cute style equation for a business casual work environment.

When I see a photo of Abel Arnett, the adorrrrrable son of Amy Poehler and Will Arnett, all I can think of is that scene from “So I Married An Axe Murderer,” where Mike Myers plays the old Scottish dad. “I’m not kidding, it’s like an orange on a toothpick. That’s a huge noggin. That’s a virtual planetoid. Has it’s own weather system. Heeeeed, moooooooooove! I’m not kidding, that boy’s head is like Sputnik; spherical but quite pointy at parts!” I don’t mean this in a negative way of course; Abel is just a big ol’ ginger Benjamin Button baby and I LOVE HIM SO MUCH.
Look, I am not one of those people who is nostalgic for the good ol’ days of “Saturday Night Live,” when the Coneheads and Pat were making everyone laugh. No, I like “SNL” now. But that doesn’t mean it always cracks me up. Usually I watch the show on Sunday mornings, with my coffee and New York Post, and I smile and maybe a giggle or two pops out. But when Maya Rudolph hosted the show this weekend — featuring special guests Amy Poehler and Justin Timberlake — I cracked the hell up.
Above, Blue Ivy Carter meets Prince, Taylor Swift, Brangelina, and Bon Iver, portrayed perfectly by Timberlake. And after the jump, more sketches I loved. Keep reading »
Meet Abel Arnett, the young son of Amy Poehler and Will Arnett. I am totally in love with his chubby little belly and fat little hands and swirl of ginger hair. He’s like a little old Irish man in a baby’s body, like a Benjamin O’Button. Ugh, my ovaries can’t handle it.
Did you catch Jimmy Fallon hosting “Saturday Night Live” this weekend? I’m not the hugest Jimmy fan, but I thought he did a great job hosting — after all, he was a fulltime cast member for years. And he didn’t do it alone! It was a full blown reunion of past cast members, including Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, who showed up with Jimmy to challenge Seth to a joke-off. Clip above!
