Amy Poehler showed up at Grant’s Tomb on Thursday to deliver the opening remarks at the New York Restoration Project’s spring picnic. Inside a tent by the Hudson River, in one of the parks that the organization has rehabilitated, N.Y.R.P. founder Bette Midler and guests including Cynthia Nixon, Mayor Bill de Blasio and Chirlane McCray, Bernadette Peters, Dr. Mehmet Oz, Melissa Leo, Josh Charles, Tim Gunn, Liz Smith, and Michael Kors, took in Poehler’s wacky stream-of-consciousness routine, complete with a heckler smack-down and a shout-out to her trainer, Razu. Enjoy the entire speech, which we hear was at least partially improvised, right here: Read More

Amy Poehler was on hand last night at Bette Midler’s New York Restoration Project‘s 13th Annual Spring Picnic, where she gave a laudatory speech about the organization’s work and joked that she is often mistaken for an actual park employee. “More than once when I’ve been hiking or walking in a green area, people have asked me where to go, or what are the indigenous plants, or how do they deal with their raccoon infestations,” she said. She also had some kind words for Midler herself. Read More
