Amy Poehler Says If Your Goal in Comedy is to Be Famous & Make Money 'Then You're In Real Trouble'

Amy Poehler keeps it casual for the 2015 Del Close Improv Comedy Marathon Press Conference held at the Upright Citizens Brigade (UCB) Theatre on Saturday night (June 27) in New York City.

The 43-year-old actress and comedian was joined by Saturday Night Live pals Bobby Moynihan and Horatio Sanz, as well as The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt‘s Ellie Kemper.

“If the goal is doing good stuff and working with your friends…if you’re doing that then you’re succeeding,” Amy told the crowd (via People). “If the goal is to be famous and make money – then you’re in real trouble.”

Amy added, “It happens rarely and when that is your goal – being famous and making money – then you’re not paying attention to the things that will make you money.”
