Happy birthday to one of Hollywood’s most hilarious stars Amy Poehler!

In the last decade, she has gone from Saturday Night Live cast member to leading lady of her very own NBC show Parks and Recreation, that is set to return to TV Sept. 22. In addition, she and her hubby Will Arnett have welcome two adorable sons Archie and Abel!

From being the coolest “cool mom” ever in Mean Girls to her character that crushes on Conan O’Brien to the Parks Department cheerleader Leslie Knope, we’ve put together some of her funniest moments to celebrate her big day.

In this hysterical Parks and Rec clip, Amy names of a number of girl cliches after being questioned for (allegedly) accidentally shooting her coworker while on a hunting trip. “I thought there was going to be chocolate!”

Amy played the onscreen wife of her real husband Will Arnett in the cult series, Arrested Development. Later Will showed up on Parks and Rec as a blind date for Amy’s character Leslie Knope.

Sarah Palin, Amy Poehler and rapping. Need we say more?

Amy’s Parks and Rec character Leslie Knope says she’s not nervous for her first date with a new man. You be the judge.

Of course, Amy as the classic “cool mom” in Mean Girls.

In a bit of a vintage clip, Amy plays the sister of Conan O’Brien’s sidekick Andy Richter, who just so happens to have a huge crush on Coco.

This year, Amy gave the commencement speech at Harvard. Hilarious and heartfelt? That’s just par for the course for Ms. Poehler.

Who doesn’t love Amy’s one-legged character, Amber? What? You don’t love her? Jealous?

And last, but certainly not least, is Amy as Hilary Clinton along with her main cohort Tina Fey as Sarah Palin.

Which one is your fave? Did we leave any out? Let us know, and be sure to wish her a happy birthday in the comments!
