Amy Poehler

My favorite genre of movies are comedies. If I had to have a good top five of comedians that I love. They would be Will Ferrell, Amy Poehler, Adam Sandler, Steve Carell, and the Wayans brothers. For now, I want to talk about Amy. She is so funny and I love her in any show or movie she performs in. She is a really talented actress in my opinion. She is at her best in Saturday Night Live. Here are a few video clips and pictures.

One of the best things about her is that she can adapt to so many roles but I love how she plays “dumb” in a lot of them. Also, a few more movies that she acted pretty well in are:
Baby Mama(with Tina Fey)

Blades Of Glory

Parks and Recreation

I hope she continues to stay up there with her comedy because she’s really comedic and hopefully she will star in some more movies.

Verbal Irony
