I don’t think there’s such a thing as women’s comedy. It’s all comedy. - Amy Poehler

People who read are people who dream, and we connect through the stories we live and tell and read

Amy Poehler: I have to say, it’s about time you got into show biz. My shoulders are killing me from carrying the hopes of our entire family these past few years.
Greg Poehler: The whole reason I got into the biz is because I would hear literally every day, “Greg, you’re better than her. Greg, you’re so much funnier than your sister”. And yes, it was me, saying it to myself in the mirror, but still I heard it every day.

"The best thing you can do is just be yourself." - Amy Poehler

This is like a dream

To some people, not caring is cool, commenting is more interesting that doing, and everything is judged and then disposed of in, like, five minutes. I’m not interested in those kinds if people. I like the person who commits and goes all in and takes big swings and them maybe fails or looks stupid; who jumps and falls down, rather than the person who points at the person who fell, and laughs.

Most of the women in your life will outlast the men in your life. The SNL ladies — Maya Rudolph, Rachel Dratch, Tina — and I text pictures of our kids back and forth all the time. It keeps us connected. As my nanny used to say, the older you get the more important it is to know people that knew you when. | Amy Poehler

It’s Jesus’ birthday!

You’ve always made it clear that you’re a feminist. It’s a term that a lot of people back away from these days.

But then they go on to explain what they support and live by—it’s feminism exactly. I think some big actors and musicians feel like they have to speak to their audience and that word is confusing to their audience. But I don’t get it. That’s like someone being like, “I don’t really believe in cars, but I drive one every day and I love that it gets me places and makes life so much easier and faster and I don’t know what I would do without it.” But that’s everyone else’s trip, not mine. I had a mother who discovered herself in the ’70s and used to go to meetings and wear a sassy scarf.
