Former House Speaker and Lunar-colony enthusiast Newt Gingrich will guest star in an upcoming episode of Parks and Recreation on NBC. Gingrich will be the latest in a recent flurry of political heavy-hitters to appear on the show. Other recent guests include Olympia Snowe, Barbara Boxer, and Senator John McCain. Even Vice President Joe Biden and his dazzling choppers have graced Parks and Recreation with their presence of late. What is it about Parks and ... Read More
All of us here at BUST love ourselves some funny ladies.  That’s why we're going to talk about how the online show Broad City is worth checking out for a good hearty laugh.   Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer are the creators and stars of the online comedy series Broad City.  The 2-to-7 minute long webisodes depict life in the city for the two uncomfortably awkward twenty-somethings.  And the ladies have been at it since 2010.   Last ...

Big news about “America’s happy warrior” and newly re-elected VP Joe Biden — he’s going to guest star on Parks and Recreation! If you’re not as obsessed with Parks and Rec as you should be (Seriously. Go watch every single episode right now, that show is perfect), you might not know that Amy Poehler’s character Leslie Knope is in love with Biden. He’s the single entry on her celebrity sex list, and she once said that ... Read More
  In what we can only guess is an attempt to put together the most effing amazing awards show ever, Amy Poehler and Tina Fey are set to co-host the 70th Annual Golden Globes. These funny ladies only get funnier when they’re together. Remember Tina photo-bombing Amy at the Globes last year? Or the 2011 Emmys? Or Baby Mama? Or SNL? The list of times the two have been brilliantly paired together goes on and on. The Golden Globes will air on January 13, ... Read More
After Katie Roiphe wrote an article criticizing feminists nowadays for being too sarcastic instead of being “serious” and “straightforward,” Amanda Marcotte over at Slate wrote a response to Roiphe’s article, saying that feminists are sarcastic these days because, well, pretty much everyone is! In celebration of snark, we’ve compiled a list of ten of our favorite snarky feminists (in no particular order). First up is Janeane ... Read More
As BUST intern Michelle previously wrote, Amy Poehler (BUST cover girl in our DEC/JAN 2009 issue) keeps getting more awesome, and I have to agree.  Even in the midst of her recently announced divorce from Will Arnett (something most of us here at BUST are devastated about), Amy was able to give some more amazing advice to girls who are experiencing body image issues. In the latest “Ask Amy” video, a young girl wants advice because she feels like ... Read More
    The Interwebs is all a-flutter about these new photos of Amy Poehler with a maaaaan, out on the town in what, at first glance, is some sort of sexy late-night social situation. But while we love to see our comedienne girl crush Amy P. hitting the town, we're pretty sure this "mystery man" is NOT a new flame--it's fellow comedian and internet star, John Roberts. You probably remember him from this gem, playing his mom in "The Christmas ... Read More
On a scale of one to obsessed, my love for the friendship that Amy Poehler and Tina Fey share would be labeled as “straight up obsessed.” So, you can only imagine my excitement when Vulture released this vintage picture of the two ladies hugging it out circa nineteen-ninety-something. According to Conan writer Brian Stack (via Vulture), it was taken at Lake Michigan in Chicago when the two did improv with Second City. There are a lot of good ... Read More
  Some of you in the NYC area may have noticed Amy Poehler at the 92Y on our Hot Dates calendar a few weeks ago, and hopefully a lucky few were able to catch the Parks and Recreation funny lady crack some jokes and talk about the importance of improv comedy to her life and her career, how much she loves her Parks and Rec castmates, (hint: she'd both take a bullet for them and sleep with them), and that time she played Dorothy in a 4th grade production ...

  Today is the day when my personal favorite and BUST-featured deadpan actress extraordinaire was born: Aubrey Plaza. In honor of her day of birth, here's a playlist of clips that detail what I think Aubrey's doing on her birthday. You need to a flashplayer enabled browser to view this video First, Aubrey is probably going to receive a lot of gifts from other people. But if there's one lesson that her show Parks and Recreation taught us, it's this: treat yo ... Read More
