Actress/comedian Amy Poehler

Who says beautiful women can't be funny?

Like Tina Fey (an earlier honoree on this blog), Amy Poehler is an alumna of "Saturday Night Live," where both women worked together.  Ms. Poehler was a cast member from 2001 to 2008, and she appeared  in a few movies during the two thousand zeroes as well, including two movies with Ms. Fey - Mean Girls and Baby Mama, the latter starring Ms. Poehler as an immature surrogate mother.

Since 2009, she has starred as Leslie Knope, deputy director of the Parks and Recreation department of fictional Pawnee, Indiana in the NBC series "Parks and Recreation," in which she deals with all the inevitable pitfalls of making a small municipal bureaucracy work.
