Amy Poehler on the red carpet at the 2013 Emmy Awards

“I took comfort knowing that Amy could carry the sketch if I stunk it up, because she’s such a skilled and generous performer. I mean, she’s no Kattan in a dress, but considering the Darwinian limitations on women in comedy, she does very well for herself.” - Tina Fey

She’s very concerned with feminism and breaking down barriers and stuff like that, but at the same time, she’s got a fun spirit to her, and she’s a little bit funnier and cooler than you would think she is as a type-A nerd." - Mike Schur
