Amy Poehler got her start on Saturday Night Live in 2001, delivering laughs and nailing her impressions of Kelly Ripa, Hillary Clinton and Sharon Osbourne. 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.
In honor of Poehler's birthday, we taking a look back at some of her most hilarious skits on SNL.
Happy Birthday, Amy!
Kaitlyn Gets Her Ears Pierced
In this 2004 skit, Poehler stars as a hyperactive and super chatty little girl named Kaitlyn who begs her step-dad Rick, played by Horatio Sanz, to allow her to get her ears pierced by her cousin, Becky played by Kate Winslet. What makes this skit funny is how extraordinarily opposite their personalities are and how she constantly yells "Rick! Rick! Rick! Rick! Rick! Rick!"
