Amy Poehler leaving Saturday Night Live

September 16th, 2008 // 55 Comments

Amy Poehler, who’s pregnant with her first child with husband Will Arnett, will take a maternity leave from Saturday Night Live after the November election – but she won’t be coming back, according to the latest issue of Men’s Vogue:

“It’s gonna be really hard — Boyz II Men hard — to say goodbye to yesterday. ‘SNL’ was dangerous, late-night, last-minute and star-studded, but like any good drug, you need to know when to put it down.”

Okay, now everybody can officially say there’s nobody funny on SNL anymore. Not that I’ve watched the show in years, but I sort of liked knowing it was there. You know, in case I ever found myself sitting at home on a Saturday night with a fistful of Valium and Wild Turkey. What can I say? I’m a health nut.

    I also forgot to mention that Fred Armisen is fucking awesome and needs to be featured way more on the show.

    Also Lorne needs to seriously fire Keenan “One voice, One character” Thompson.
