Amy Poehler

Poehler is a founding member of the biggest haven for comedy nerds in the entire Milky Way galaxy—the star-studded Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre. Her quick wit and energetic performances have made her an improv legend, a status that she has used to reach out to young women across the globe. If you've never checked out her heartfelt web series "Smart Girls at the Party," you should. Poehler has used her fame to empower countless young women, and we have a feeling she's just getting started. As her Parks & Rec character would say, "We’re all just calm and happy people together enjoying ourselves on Earth."
