WSJ Magazine recently interviewed Bill and Eileen Poehler, former teachers and parents to actress Amy Poehler….
BILL: Amy is more nervous about this interview than she is getting up in front of millions of people. She called me and gave me a couple of test questions and I failed them all. So she said, “Dad, please just be boring.”
Does she still make you laugh?
EILEEN: All the time.
BILL: Will [Arnett, Amy’s husband] and Amy like to pretend they’re us. We don’t think it’s very funny, but they think it’s hilarious.
What was your favorite sketch of hers on “SNL”?
EILEEN: I was thrilled with her Hillary Clinton. I mean, Hillary Clinton!
What about least favorite?
BILL: I guess the one-legged hyperactive farting girl.
