In 2004, she became a co-anchor of Weekend Update with former SNL star Tina Fey and now Late Night host Seth Meyers. Poehler left the NBC series in 2008 and made a name for herself as comedian and actor, starring in films like Inside Out, Baby Mama, The House and more. Poehler has also produced several TV series, directed a film, and released a book. Not to mention her Golden Globe winning performance as Leslie Knope on Parks and Recreation.
