30 Hilarious Faces of Amy Poehler

Amy Poehler is no stranger to a costume change. Most people know the funny 40-year-old from her reign on Saturday Night Live or her current lead role on Parks and Recreation, but she had another gig before these comedy shows. Poehler and three fellow comedians (Matt Besser, Ian Roberts, and Matt Walsh) founded the Upright Citizen Brigade, a sketch comedy troupe whose actors often transform into elaborate characters.

The comedy quartet performed anywhere they could until they finally opened their own theater in the late 90s. In honor of the Upright Citizen Brigade theater's fifteenth birthday, New York Magazine released thirty Poehler-oids (polaroids) of Amy as a different alter ego for UCB shows. From an angry Frida Kahlo to a serious librarian, watch as she hilariously transforms…right in front of your very eyes!
