Well, I write in the book that when you improvise, there’s this idea that you have to say yes. And as I’ve gotten a little older, I’ve added please to the end, because I realized when you say yes to things, it means you’re not doing them alone. You’re usually asking for help and wisdom and collaboration from someone else.
—  Amy Poehler on the title of her book, Yes Please.

"When I was in high school I was a really huge ‘SNL’ fan. I remember the cast around the time I started watching it - Will Ferrell, Ana Gasteyer, Molly Shannon, Cheri O’Teri, Tracy Morgan. I did research to find out how people got on the show. Their bios always said they came from an improv team, so I started taking classes." - Aubrey Plaza

Last night Amy Poehler read the final chapter of her new book to us and she is a true queen. It was inspiring, hilarious, poignant, silly, smart and perfect. I know we all are like AMY POEHLER IS QUEEN, but she actually is. She is empowering women of all ages, encouraging humans continually, and legitimately making the world a better place. I tried to tell her all this with a single glance from the fourth row but I think I just looked like I had a really bad/scary eye twitch.

I remember just a couple weeks ago, I’d come to accept the fact that I’d probably never see Amy perform improv live, much less the UCB4. Today, we were front row at the very first ASSSSCAT at the new theater, and my dream came true. I’m so emotional I’m actually crying.
