In a promotional blitz for her new book “Yes Please," everyone’s favorite funny-girl Amy Poehler stopped by The Howard Stern Show yesterday to discuss sex-tips, divorce and a possible date she once went on with John Stamos. She thinks.
Poehler, who separated from actor Will Arnett in 2012, said that she met Stamos for dinner and drinks, before realizing that perhaps she was on a date with the actual Uncle Jesse Katsopolis from Full House (watch out, Aunt Becky). Read More

To be completely honest, Joan Rivers was never my favorite comedienne. Her hard-hitting jokes, told mostly at the expense of famous others (when they weren’t at her own expense) were too sharp-tongued for my taste. I thought of Rivers as overly venomous, sometimes tactless, and largely inappropriate.
It wasn’t until I heard of her passing that I realized my latent admiration. In fact, it was the very dislike of her comedy that caused me to like her most; she didn’t care if you liked what she was saying, she was going to say it anyway. Read More

Amy Poehler's Smart Girls at the Party started off as a web series and is now a whole online community. They have a website, a Facebook page, and a Tumblr. Smart Girls encourages young women to be active in their communities and make a difference in the world. It's an incredible organization, so you can imagine how thrilled I was to get to talk to one of its founders, Meredith Walker.
What made you want to start Smart Girls?
It came from being up late at night talking about growing up. The great things, the tough things. Read More

When I think of “Making it in America” I imagine a life full of making it rain, throwing drinks in other people’s faces, bling bling, and of course, being able to lounge around in a Juicy Couture tracksuit 24/7.
While The Real Housewives franchise may have seriously influenced my opinions on the American dream, I still believe that success should be measured in expensive loungewear. What else says you’ve made it like a $300 matching, brightly-colored, velour tracksuit with rhinestones that exclaim that your butt is, well, Juicy. Read More

Imagine if Date Movie—the romcom spin-off of the Scary Movie franchise—were about 50 times smarter. This seems to be the premise of They Came Together, a chick flick parody directed by David Wain (Wet Hot American Summer, Role Models) that stars Amy Poehler and Paul Rudd and features pretty much every funny working actor today: Bill Hader, Ellie Kemper, Michael Ian Black, Jack McBrayer, Kenan Thompson, Michaela Watkins, Adam Scott…the list goes on.
The story begins with Molly (Poehler) and Joel (Rudd) on a double date with another couple trading stories of how they met. Read More

So, it's no surprise that she gives awesome speeches, too. Read More
