Amy Poehler to appear at Clusterfest 2019

It was announced today that Amy Poehler has been added to the Clusterfest 2019 lineup. She will most likely be bringing some friends because it was announced as “Amy Poehler & Friends”, even though they didn’t say who is she going to bring. Amy is set to make an appearance in the San Francisco festival on Friday, June 21. Read more about the event below!

“Saturday Night Live” alums Amy Poehler and Fred Armisen, along with  Neal Brennan, have been added to the third annual Clusterfest lineup, organizers announced Friday, March 15 — just in time for single-day ticket sales.

Poehler is slated to join the first day’s bill for the three-day comedy and music celebration scheduled for June 21-23, at the Civic Center Plaza and Bill Graham Civic Auditorium. Billed as “Amy Poehler & Friends,” expect the “Parks & Recreation” star to bring out famed comedic colleagues (maybe an Oscars reunion with Maya Rudolph and Tina Fey?) similar to Amy Schumer’s headlining set last year that included appearances by Bridget Everett, Nikki Glaser and Michael Che, among others.

News of Poehler, Brennan and Clusterfest veteran Armisen joining in on the fun follow the first wave of announcements for the festival that included comics John Mulaney and Patton Oswalt as well as musical group the Roots.

Organizers plan to reveal more acts and attractions in the weeks leading up to the summer festival, which is co-produced by Comedy Central, Superfly and Bay Area-based Another Planet Entertainment in collaboration with SF Sketchfest.

Single-day tickets, ranging from $89 to $224.50, go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday via www.clusterfest.com.

Three-day general admission, VIP and Platinum tickets are also still available. Platinum tickets at $1,250, introduced for the first time this year, include VIP perks along with a special festival entrance, invitations to exclusive after-parties, talent meet-and-greet events and “unlimited french fries — seriously.”

Inside Oscars Rehearsals with Amy Poehler, Tina Fey and Maya Rudolph

Inside Oscars Rehearsals with Amy Poehler, Tina Fey and Maya Rudolph

Amy, Tina and Maya rehearsed for the Oscars earlier today at the Dolby Theatre. From what USA Today reported, it looks like they are opening the show tomorrow. You can read more about it below and check out photo from the rehearsals in our gallery!

 Amy Poehler has one golden rule for the Oscars.

“If any of us fall, the other ones have to go down, too,” she cracked at rehearsals Saturday, practicing her presenting moment alongside pals Tina Fey and Maya Rudolph. All three women had not falling on their mind: Each paired jeans with what appeared to be the heels they’ll be wearing at the 91st annual Academy Awards (ABC, Sunday, 8 ET/PT) and practiced walking across the Dolby Theatre stage.

Before a room of seat placards, producers and Academy staffers, Fey read off her first line. “Good evening, and welcome to the one millionth Academy Awards!” Fey said at the microphone to laughter, segueing straight into a joke about how there’s no host this year. (Oh, and she delivers a USA TODAY joke you don’t want to miss.)

Then Rudolph opened her white rehearsal envelope: “And the Oscar goes to … Amy Poehler!” she proclaimed, in faux shock.

“If I fall in my dress, just leave me for dead,” Tina Fey deadpanned to Amy Poehler and Maya Rudolph as the buddy-trio walked toward center stage to rehearse lines they’ll deliver as presenters during Sunday’s 91st Academy Awards. “Or you can just drag me.”

No can do, responded Poehler: “If any of us fall, the other ones have to go down, too.”

“There’s Gaga!…Where’s Bradley?” said Poehler, after spotting Lady Gaga’s photo on one of the dozens of cardboard placards emblazoned with celebrity head-shots that pepper the near-empty orchestra as seat-holders. “Dana Carvey!” Poehler said excitedly, noticing her former Saturday Night Live costar’s photo affixed to another. “There’s Angela Bassett…Glenn…”

Amy Poehler to Speak at Indeed Interactive

Amy Poehler to Speak at Indeed Interactive

It was announced that Amy is one of the keynote speakers at Indeed Interactive. She will be delivering the keynote speech: “The Art of Authenticity: How to Change the World by Being Yourself.” The conference is happening on May 15 in Austin, Texas.

Amy Poehler is one of the most versatile and sought-after talents in Hollywood today. Famous for her role as Leslie Knope on “Parks and Recreation,” she was one of the biggest stars on “Saturday Night Live” in the 2000s. Today, she helms many of her own projects through her production company, Paper Kite Productions, and serves as an executive producer, author, host and humanitarian.

But no matter what medium she works in, she is always true to herself. And she has a message for the rest of us — that authenticity isn’t just important to a career in entertainment; it has many lessons for the world of work also. That is why we are very excited to announce Poehler’s upcoming appearance at Indeed Interactive, our annual conference for talent attraction and HR professionals, where she will deliver the keynote speech: “The Art of Authenticity: How to Change the World by Being Yourself.”

Few public figures have careers that so clearly reflect authenticity and the drive to follow their hearts as Poehler. She developed her skills in improv comedy, an arena where she could say whatever came to mind and act without a script. As a comedic actress, she made a name for herself by fearlessly pushing the limits of humor and leaning into memorable characters.

In addition to her acting career, Poehler is the founder of “Amy Poehler’s Smart Girls at the Party,” an online and in-person community offering resources to help young women cultivate their most authentic selves.
Poehler recalls the joy of being accepted for who she was as a young girl and founded the organization to empower other girls to feel the same way. “Smart Girls at the Party” emphasizes “intelligence and imagination over ‘fitting in’” and embodies Poehler’s vision that embracing authenticity can transform individuals, organizations and, eventually, the world.  

So how does this fit in with hiring?
Poehler has conquered new territory in production, publishing and tech by being unafraid to learn and change. When it comes to hiring, both employees and organizations must cultivate these qualities to find their right fit.

Like many industries, the recruiting world is constantly changing, and adaptability and authenticity are key for those on both sides of the hiring equation. It can be difficult to determine which candidate is the best fit for a role — but when job seekers are being their authentic selves and organizations are clearly expressing and embodying their cultural values and missions, the right matches will follow.

Come join us, and explore just why authenticity matters, at Indeed Interactive with Amy Poehler.
