<div class="meta "><span class="caption-text ">Amy Poehler, 39, was the first celebrity mentioned in Time&#39;s 100 Most Influential People in the World list, due to her fresh spin on comedy. The comedian and star of NBC&#39;s &#39;Parks and Recreation&#39; was a cast-member on &#39;Saturday Night Live&#39; from 2001 to 2008 and was one of the founders of the Upright Citizens Brigade theatres. &#34;In comedy, a lot of what you see feels derivative and uninspired; with Amy there is  always something fresh and unexpected, and that&#39;s why I love her work,&#34;  Aziz Ansari wrote of his  co-star in &#39;Parks and Recreation.&#39; &#40;Pictured: Amy Poehler appears in a still from NBC&#39;s &#39;Parks and Recreation.&#39;&#41; (NBC)</span></div>
