Last night (July 22), Amy Poehler attended the opening night of ‘Jacqueline Novak: Get On Your Knees’, an off-Broadway production that Natasha Lyonne is producing. Also in attendance were Abbi Jacobson, Rachel Dratch, Natasha Lyonne, Fred Armisen, and Seth Meyers. Our gallery has been updated with photos from the event!
On June 2, Amy Poehler attended The 2019 Award for Social Justice in Action to present the award to the iconic Norman Lear. The event wasn’t publicized much, that’s why I just found out now that Amy was there. Only one picture from the night has been released but you can watch Amy’s entire introduction in the video below (she shows up at 57:40).
Amy Poehler was the headliner of the 2019 Clusterfest in San Francisco, California. She appeared twice, first in a conversation with Fred Armisen and then for her headline set at the end of the night. Amy invited some friends to the stage such as Nori Reed, Janine Brito, Paula Pell, Patton Oswalt, and Fred Armisen. Check out photos from the night in our gallery and read highlights from the evening below!

Before a capacity crowd, the two briefly reminsiced about their days on “Saturday Night Live” — and knowing when to leave — as well as musing on myriad topics from Poehler’s costars in her 2019 movie “Wine Country” (“Maya Rudolph seems like a stoner, but she’s not,” “Rachel Dratch would make a very good therapist in real life,” “Ana Gasteyer is a mumbler” and “Paula Pell is fearless”) — to the dubious pursuit of climbing Mount Everest. (“You’re not supposed to.”)
Poehler, 47, said these days, she sees her life as a series of semesters, and that after headlining Clusterfest — The City’s third annual, three-day extravaganza of comedy, music and food in the Civic Center — she’s going to work on her upcoming film adaptation of the young adult novel “Moxie.”
Adamantly, she also offered advice to people who have trouble sleeping: “You’ve gotta get a CPAP machine if you snore,” she said. “It changed my life. I was never getting enough REM sleep.” She said in a scene in “Wine Country,” she used her own personal machine, “just like Bradley Cooper used his own dog in ‘A Star is Born.’”
Typically early to rise and early to bed, she said she was slightly concerned about staying up late for her 10:15 p.m. headlining set.
Yesterday, Amy Poehler attended the 2019 Women in Film Annual Gala in which she was one of the honorees of the night. Natasha Lyonne was there to present her with the WIF Entrepreneur in Entertainment Award and instead of giving a usual speech, Amy just listed a bunch of female creators and female-created shows and films. You can find 70+ high-quality photos from the gala in the photo gallery and watch a video of Amy’s speech below!
