NBC Releases Amy Poehler Promos for ‘SNL’

Guys, it’s almost here. There are only 3 days left on my countdown to the SNL season premiere with “Amy Whatshername” and “Katy Hoo-hah.” (Yes, I have been making little Xs in my day planner to mark the momentous occasion.) To keep us all from going rabid with anticipation, NBC has graciously posted a video of host Amy Poehler’s promos for the highly anticipated season premiere.

Between the constant references to Wayne’s World, a lesson in baby-making, and a bit of role-playing (not that kind, don’t get so excited), it seems like they’re just letting the Parks and Recreation star do her thing. While I’m trying to keep my expectations in check after last year’s dismal season, it would be in SNL’s best interests to let Ms. Poehler take the reins and do what she does best this Saturday. (If not, let’s hope we can at least depend on musical guest Katy Perry to give us a laugh by resurrecting those Cool Whip cannons from the “California Gurls” video.)

Celebrity Editor Kelsea Stahler was born in a pile of dirt. Okay, she was actually born in an old Naval hospital in San Diego, which then became a pile of dirt and remained as such for a number of years before becoming a parking lot perfectly sized for circus tents, and finally a museum. She eventually left San Diego to attend New York University, where she studied Journalism and English literature — two less-than profitable liberal arts degrees about which guidance counselors warned her. Against all odds, she now resides in Brooklyn, where she fights the constant fear that the locals will soon discover she isn’t quite cool enough to live there, and makes a living writing absurd, pop culture features about Batman, zombies, vampires, funny people, and Ron Swanson.
