Amy Poehler Visits IFC and (More Important) Me!

Amy Poehler Visits IFC and (More Important) Me!

This Friday, Amy Poehler is Scott Aukerman’s guest on his supersmart, funny new IFC series Comedy Bang! Bang!  which does for talk shows what Christopher Guest mockumentaries have done for dog shows, community theater and other cultural touchstones. Poehler’s deadpan turn as an earnest star in a wig big and blonde enough for a Real Housewife is a great fit for the show’s droll  satire. But wouldn’t you rather come out and see her in person? Poehler, whose brilliant series Parks and Recreation has just ended its best season yet,  will be my  guest on stage at the 92nd St. Y this Friday (ticket info here; the event is sold out but you can still join the waiting list).

I’ll be asking her some questions already submitted on Tumblr. Next week the Tumblr editors will put her answers together into a short video, which I’ll post here.

Hope you can join us Friday; just DVR that other thing.

Meanwhile, here’s a clip from the next Comedy Bang! Bang!    

And here’s Poehler whipping her wig with Reggie Watts, Aukerman’s musical sidekick on Comedy Bang! Bang!, from the sidekick web series, Reggie Makes Music.
