Amy Poehler: 'Time Out New York' Feature!

Amy Poehler gives her hair a tug in this brand new feature from Time Out New York‘s latest issue.

Here’s what the 41-year-old funny lady had to share with the mag:

On the UCB theater in NY: “I still consider New York my home, and I’m here about five months out of the year. When I’m back, I’m always at [long-running improv show] ASSSSCAT and the theater. The community has grown so much that our theaters in New York and L.A. have lives of their own. But New York continues to be, in my opinion, the place where the really raw and fresh talent comes from. It’s hard to live here, so the people that come [to New York] really have a certain pluck. What’s cool is that I keep getting older, but the audiences stay the same age.”

On empowering women in her work: “Yes, I consider myself a feminist, and it informs my work only in that it’s just who I am, in the same way that I’m a woman, or I’m 5’2″ or whatever. I was lucky that I came through a system that had many people who did much more hard work and road-clearing before I got there.”

On her opinion on the Parks & Recreation cast:
“I’ve said it many times and I’ll say it again: I think our cast is the best on TV in comedy or drama. If you put our cast in any other show—Game of Thrones, Mad Men—we’d all be able to deliver. Singing, dancing, drama, sex, documentary—all of it.”
