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.”

Abbi Jacobson, Ilana Glazer and Amy Poehler Talk ‘Broad City’ with Newsweek

Abbi Jacobson, Ilana Glazer and Amy Poehler Talk ‘Broad City’ with Newsweek

Abbi Jacobson, Ilana Glazer and Amy Poehler talked to Newsweek about their show ‘Broad City’. They talked about Amy joining the show as executive producer, the story of the beginning of series and the final season. I’ve selected the parts where they talk about Amy and the things that Amy said. Read it below!

The hilarious, often gross and frankly weird saga of Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer debuted in 2014, as a web series, with the two stars and co-creators playing heightened versions of themselves: Young women living in New York City, drifting from one small adventure to the next, often making mistakes (like Ilana’s occasional appropriation of black culture), rarely getting what they want, but always taking comfort in their friendship. Abbi, an aspiring artist and the more timid of the two, works as a cleaner at a gym called Soulstice; Ilana, the wild one, spends her days sleeping in the bathroom at her sales job, an online company called Deals Deals Deals. 

The two struggling comedians would see their careers explode after Comedy Central turned it into an untraditional sitcom, thanks to comedian and executive producer Amy Poehler. Through it all, Jacobson and Glazer have remained the closest of collaborators. “We came with these essential parts to creating a partnership that moved each other forward,” Glazer tells Newsweek, which spoke to the girls—as they call themselves—and their many collaborators about the story of Broad City, as it draws to a close.

“Tune in to Comedy Central on March 28 and get ready for a cry fest,” says one of those collaborators, Lucia Aniello, her own voice quavering with emotion.

‘Wine Country’ First Look

‘Wine Country’ First Look

The first images from Amy’s directorial debut Wine Country have been released by People Magazine. We couldn’t be more excited to watch the movie! Wine Country is available for streaming starting May 10 on Netflix. Our gallery has been updated with the production stills that were released today, check them out below!

Wine Country is a comedy about long time friends going on a trip to celebrate a 50th birthday,” Poehler tells PEOPLE in the latest issue. “It is loosely based on a real trip that myself and the cast took, and it’s an attempt to show what deep and lasting female friendships look like.”

“In many ways the film is a long conversation between funny women who don’t mind making emotional deep dives,” Poehler continues. “They discover they aren’t connecting the way they used to because they aren’t keeping their relationships. It’s a love story to all the women in my life who hold me up, and it’s told by the funniest and deepest women I know.”

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…”
