In what we can only guess is an attempt to put together the most effing amazing awards show ever, Amy Poehler and Tina Fey are set to co-host the 70th Annual Golden Globes. These funny ladies only get funnier when they’re together. Remember Tina photo-bombing Amy at the Globes last year? Or the 2011 Emmys? Or Baby Mama? Or SNL? The list of times the two have been brilliantly paired together goes on and on.
The Golden Globes will air on January 13, ... Read More

After Katie Roiphe wrote an article criticizing feminists nowadays for being too sarcastic instead of being “serious” and “straightforward,” Amanda Marcotte over at Slate wrote a response to Roiphe’s article, saying that feminists are sarcastic these days because, well, pretty much everyone is! In celebration of snark, we’ve compiled a list of ten of our favorite snarky feminists (in no particular order).
First up is Janeane ... Read More
As BUST intern Michelle previously wrote, Amy Poehler (BUST cover girl in our DEC/JAN 2009 issue) keeps getting more awesome, and I have to agree. Even in the midst of her recently announced divorce from Will Arnett (something most of us here at BUST are devastated about), Amy was able to give some more amazing advice to girls who are experiencing body image issues.
In the latest “Ask Amy” video, a young girl wants advice because she feels like ... Read More

The Interwebs is all a-flutter about these new photos of Amy Poehler with a maaaaan, out on the town in what, at first glance, is some sort of sexy late-night social situation. But while we love to see our comedienne girl crush Amy P. hitting the town, we're pretty sure this "mystery man" is NOT a new flame--it's fellow comedian and internet star, John Roberts. You probably remember him from this gem, playing his mom in "The Christmas ... Read More

On a scale of one to obsessed, my love for the friendship that Amy Poehler and Tina Fey share would be labeled as “straight up obsessed.” So, you can only imagine my excitement when Vulture released this vintage picture of the two ladies hugging it out circa nineteen-ninety-something. According to Conan writer Brian Stack (via Vulture), it was taken at Lake Michigan in Chicago when the two did improv with Second City.
There are a lot of good ... Read More

Some of you in the NYC area may have noticed Amy Poehler at the 92Y on our Hot Dates calendar a few weeks ago, and hopefully a lucky few were able to catch the Parks and Recreation funny lady crack some jokes and talk about the importance of improv comedy to her life and her career, how much she loves her Parks and Rec castmates, (hint: she'd both take a bullet for them and sleep with them), and that time she played Dorothy in a 4th grade production ...

Today is the day when my personal favorite and BUST-featured deadpan actress extraordinaire was born: Aubrey Plaza. In honor of her day of birth, here's a playlist of clips that detail what I think Aubrey's doing on her birthday.

First, Aubrey is probably going to receive a lot of gifts from other people. But if there's one lesson that her show Parks and Recreation taught us, it's this: treat yo ... Read More

Last night Amy Poehler, living goddess and two-time BUST cover-lady, joined Jimmy Fallon on Late Night for a hilarious interview that included five-second celebrity impressions and reminiscing about fake movies they've starred in together. As always, Poehler employed her ninja-like improv skills to create ridiculous story lines to go along with the posters.
The equally hilarious Part 2 is here:
Of course, the gem of the bunch is ... Read More
This weekend’s episode of SNL was perhaps the best of all season, with a lineup that seemed ripped from the pages of BUST (plus plenty of killer cameos…and one by Bill O'Reilly?) and a distinctly female energy (no doubt stemming from host Maya Rudolph’s presence) that felt like a breath of fresh air—or a gasp for fresh air after laughing so hard at Rudolph and Kristen Wiig’s frozen-chicken-fondling, golf-cart-driving, ...

Amy Poehler, Lea Michele, Jenna Fischer, Teri Hatcher, Kaley Cuoco and Julie Bowen sat down to talk about their experiences as actresses with Hollywood Reporter. The current reigning queens of primetime television comedy spoke about how they’ve dealt with lines that aren’t funny, what they consider to be their big break and what personal infusions they’ve lent to their characters over the years.
What I thought was the most interesting part of the ... Read More
