In Amy Poehler’s ‘Yes Please,’ We See the Boss Behind the Comedy

There’s a certain clarity to Amy Poehler that’s like a bright beam of sunshine on the world. She’s smart and wily, able to wring laughs out of the goofiest material, always the funniest person in the room, and on top of it, she clearly has her head on straight.

But you know who was probably even stranger than you in high school? Your favorite cultural icon. Or maybe not — as is only to be expected, some had joyful (and/or prank-filled) teenage years, some suffered tragedies, some were completely weird, some were popular, and some deserve our respect for even getting through. Click through to read 50 cultural icons on their teenage… Read More
