Amy Poehler joined Saturday Night Live in 2001. She quickly became a fan favorite, later joining Tina Fey for Weekend Update which marked the beginning of one of our favorite celebrity duos. After SNL, she starred as Leslie Knope on Parks & Recreation (all seven seasons are on Netflix right now) as well as starring in several hilarious comedy movies. Amy Poehler never fails to make me laugh, and I could think of no better way to celebrate her birthday than sharing five of my favorite skits of hers on Saturday Night Live.
Her Sarah Palin Rap will always be number one for me. She’s pregnant and spitting rhymes like a badass.
Amy and Tina have the best dynamic and they are HILARIOUS as the Bush twins.
As much as I love and adore Kate McKinnon’s Hillary Clinton, Amy will always be my favorite SNL Hillary.
Amy as 10-year-old Kaitlin gives me flashbacks to my own childhood, and this one includes Kate Winslet!
No list of Amy’s best SNL moments would be complete without Betty from Bronx Beat.
Happy Birthday, Amy Poehler! Thanks for all the laughs. What are some of your favorite Amy moments from SNL? Tell us in the comments!
