Amy Poehler on 'Parks & Rec' Producer Harris Wittels' Death: 'Today I Lost a Dear, Young Friend'

Amy Poehler strikes a pose as she makes her way inside the 2015 Annual unite4:humanity event at the Beverly Hilton Hotel on Thursday evening (February 19) in Beverly Hills, Calif.

The 43-year-old actress received that Unity Award for her work with Worldwide Orphans, while Aaron Paul and his wife Lauren Parsekian were honored with the unite2gether Award for their work with the Kind Campaign.

Also in attendance were William H. Macy, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, and Jeff Bridges, who introduced Pink before her performance.

During her speech, Amy took a moment to mention Parks and Rec co-executive producer Harris Wittels, who was found dead only a few hours earlier.

“Today I lost a dear, young friend in my life who was struggling with addiction,” Amy said (via Variety). “So, I don’t really feel like telling any jokes. I’m kind of sad, and it’s really great to be here tonight and listen to all of you, and listen to the great work that you do and be reminded why we live in this bizarre planet called ‘Hollywood.’ It’s very strange.”

FYI: Amy is wearing a Tadashi Shoji dress and Jennifer Fisher jewels.

Kristen, on auditioning for SNL: “Auditioning for SNL is the most nervous I’ve ever been in my life. It was terrifying.”

Amy, on doing scenes with her fellow female cast members: “Every time I did a scene with the other ladies, it felt like a highlight. And if it was a stinker, it was almost more fun to think about how we would laugh about it later.”

Tina, on succeeding at SNL: “It’s understood that everyone comes in and has to write for themselves. That’s the difference between getting handed the part of the stewardess and getting to play what you think is funny. You’re not going to stay up all night to give yourself one wife line.”

Amy was later given a roast by the members of the theatre troupe before hitting the stage to give a speech and accept her award.

“When I was growing up in Burlington, Harvard University was a place we threw rocks at on our way to our real jobs. When I drove by and gave you the middle finger, I had no idea I’d be honored by you [one day],” Amy joked (via The Boston Globe). “I haven’t seen this many white people since I took my top off at a mime convention.”

Amy‘s Parks and Recreation co-star Chris Pratt is Hasty Pudding’s Man of the Year. Chris, 35, will get his own parade and roast next week on Friday (February 6).
