She plays a straight-laced government employee on Parks and Recreation, but in this amazing little ten minute 90s time capsule, Amy Poehler is a liberal feminist TV hacker. Her and her comrades take over the airwaves in their makeshift office/RV, hence the title of the pilot, RVTV.
Amy also breaks down some pretty awesome feminist raps in the clips, talking directly to the camera, breaking the forth wall, just like Parks and Rec! Maybe she was ahead of her time by utilizing this mockumentary-style filming. Or maybe just inspired by the early 90s Real World era.
Amy Poehler is one of my favorite comedy actresses these days. And to show you why, and get you in the Amy Poehler mood, the following is a list of 7 reasons why she is one of my favorites right now, and then you can watch the video in all its crude from.
1. Her and Tina Fey were the first women to co-news anchor on SNL. They were hilarious, smart and were unafraid to push the boundaries and take a stand.
2. I think they were the first two women to co-host the Oscars. I could be wrong, but either way they're hilarious when they do.
4. She hosts a youtube show called The Smart Girls at the Party, where she interviews girls and women who do cool shit, then hijinks ensue.
