Amy Poehler Has a New Boyfriend, And It's a Good One

By Courtney Enlow | Celebrities Are Better than You | April 2, 2013 | Comments ()


Stop ALL the presses, because Amy Poehler is dating Nick Kroll.

Amy Poehler seems to have moved on from her estranged husband, Will Arnett. The "Parks and Recreation" star was spotted out on a date with actor and comedian Nick Kroll at the Pikey Cafe and Bar on Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles last Friday night. Kroll has a sketch comedy show, "The Kroll Show," on Comedy Central. A spy tells us the two looked "cozy" as they sat across from each other at a small table. The couple also went unnoticed by other customers as they dined. "No one really recognized them," a witness told us. While sources tell us that this wasn't a first date, reps for the two comics didn't get back to us.

I am totally comfortable with this and it, in fact, makes me warm in my heartplace. Also, I have nothing more to say about this, I'm just happy that this is happening, so that your time here isn't completely wasted, here are some gifs of THE DEEEEWWCHE (and other pertinent imagery).

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

    I love Parks and Recreation. it is my favorite show and I look forward to Thursday and watching it. It's original, funny, witty, intelligent and just fantastic. I think it is getting renewed for another season, and it annoys me that crappy CBS shows get huge ratings while a great show like Parks is a bubble team.

    It also gives me a chance to lust after Aubrey Plaza for another week. Dark hair and brown eyes win everytime.

    I didn't realize that The Douche was the same as the condescending European foosball bully! He delivered my favorite joke from all of Community:

    (With a heavy German accent) "I wish there was a word to describe the pleasure I feel at viewing misfortune."

  • ,

    Don't get me wrong, I'd probably still tap her, but ... doesn't Amy have a face that's like 50% wider than the average face?

  • Strand

    Get out. Out.

  • John G.

    Way to be, Bobby B. Nice catch.

    Amy, keep your eye on him. I trust your judgement, but ...

  • e jerry powell

    This strengthens my resolve to utterly annihilate Nick Kroll. I'll get to it right after I finish off Tyler Perry.

  • NoPantsMcLane

    No way. #TeamArnett forever!

  • Guest

    Amy, girl you can do better. I know it's hard getting back into the dating scene, especially after a divorce and with two small kids, but don't sell yourself short.

  • Slash

    Kroll is hilarious. So, you know, good for them. I'm mostly indifferent, but hey, you kids have fun.

  • Boothy K

    He's amazing. Smart, funny and confident. I have wanted his babies since I herd him do Bobby Bottle Service on Comedy Death Ray years ago. She's out of his league and that means he'll work harder to keep her.

  • zeke_the_pig

    Thank fuck I'm talent-less, looks-less and connection-less, because I would absolutely fucking hate being famous.

  • Mrs. Julien

    Other than in the context of a mid-level entertainment site, you mean.

  • zeke_the_pig

    Naturally ;)

  • BAM

    I like Nick Kroll, but he's not good enough for Amy Poehler.

  • Amanda

    Am I the only one who wants to see Amy and Louis C.K. being adorable with one another?

  • I was SO SAD when he moved away. I understand Louis CK was never going to join the cast full-time, but still. SO. SAD.

  • $2786243

    I know everybody else is all BESLIE 4EVA, but I am the teeny voice whispering "but...Officer Sanderson!"

  • Mrs. Julien

    YOU, I like.

  • $2786243

    YES : D

  • Bedewcrock

    I love Louis C.K. but I think he's a little too unhappy for Amy Poehler.

    Which reminds me to go watch the P&R bloopers with him and Amy again.

  • Xtacle Steve

    Kroll Show and his standup don't really do it for me, but he's hilarious on The League and the criminally under watched HBO series The Life and Times of Tim as the voice of Stu. Good for them.

  • L.O.V.E.

    Amy seems to have a type: men who convincingly play douches, perhaps too convincingly.

  • JJ

    Instead of some lame portmanteau like "Kroehler," for the love of Jeff Goldblum can we please call them "Vinegar Knopes"?

  • Charlotte Preston

    before I saw the draft which had said $9775, I didn't believe that my mother in law woz truley erning money part time at their laptop.. there neighbor has been doing this 4 only about a year and resently repaid the debts on their mini mansion and purchased a top of the range Fiat Multipla. go to, Big31.Com

  • Charlotte

    I see the name 'Kayla' has been passed up for the greener pastures of a fresh identity. Unfortunately, it was unwise of you to return to this place, as you clearly did not deduce the one who first uncovered your wiley schemes would have no trouble spotting your clumsy prosaic hallmarks from a distance, even as you hid beneath a new guise.

    The people of this domain are under my protection, and woe betide those who overstep my lawful threshold. I will not have these good scribes fall prey to your whorish greed, and I hope that one day we shall meet in person and do battle, man to man.

    Oh yes, you read correctly. I first suspected you of male genitalia when I saw the strangely cleavage-focussed profile picture of your previous alias Kayla. I did not put much stock in these thoughts as I was drunk and distracted by my own furious masturbation. It was only when I came across this comment, another pretty face indulging in god-awful short-fiction, that the notion hit me; the writer of these posts, identical in narrative structure, must simply be utilising the sexual appeal of some innocent avatar to their own devious ends. This is a cruel and hideous twist indeed. But no matter, as every new plot of yours will be thwarted thoroughly by yours truly. There is no escape.

    Justice will prevail.

  • lowercase_ryan

    EE candidate.

  • alwaysanswerb

    Oh my god

  • Jill

    Nick Kroll is dead. F***ing. Sexy. And funny. Come on. PubLIZity is a great sketch.

    And, much like Arnett, he comes from lots of money (Kroll, Inc.). Not that Poehler would care or need it. But I'm guessing it may be slightly easier to take the time to make it in comedy if you had wealthy parents to help you out financially now and then. Maybe they both were cut off from family money long ago, I don't know. But if not, it could help.

    Oh, and Kroll is more talented than Arnett.

  • I absolutely hate this guy. I''ve always hated him since Best Week Ever. Tries too hard to be funny.

  • phase10

    Yeah, it's so annoying when people try hard to be good at stuff. Sheesh, what a poser.

  • Alex

    He's still not funny.

  • JJ

    He's one of the funniest comedians around. I can state my opinions as facts, too.

  • poopnado

    I can't think of any many worthy of her. But she's so darn smart, I'm sure she picked a good one.

  • Brad Weaver

    Do you people even watch The League? Nick Kroll is hilarious. His show is alright, it's not great, but good God the man is amazing on the league. He always plays complete jerks so in real life he's probably the nicest guy ever.

  • Allijo

    Gurrrl, you go get that corndog with the best duckface ever.
    Long live Painkiller Ruxin.

  • PerpetualIntern

    Just thinking about that scene makes me laugh out loud. Especially with Taco backing him up with those sweet techno beats.

  • SchmidtUltra

    Baby Jeffrey, forever unclean!

  • lowercase_ryan

    Ruxin is the best worst person I can think of. He's hysterical.

  • TheReinaG

    I think Jeff Goldblum as Ruxin's dad makes this a very tight race.

  • PerpetualIntern

    He's the person I love to hate the most. Him and Dennis on Always Sunny.

  • Mr_Grumpypants

    It's not April Fools anymore, so this is real, right? Please let this be real.

  • Mrs. Julien

    In fact, my feelings are quite the opposite.

  • chanohack

    That guy actually does seem like a douche. But Amy wouldn't date a real douche, right? So the fact that I dislike him means he's an amazing actor?

    Well played.

  • Atoz15

    I've seen him live about 4-5 times and he is truly hiiiilarious-super witty and self deprecating...he does always look pretty dang stoned and Amy is over 40 with 2 little kids so I would prbly assume this is more of a friends thang, plus I just get tht vice anyway

  • Honestly, Will seems like a moderate douche, and I mean that in the most loving way, so he may be just her type.

  • Atoz15

    also the Pikey is like 2 blocks from me so this is really emotional for me.

  • bimboden

    This was my exact reaction!!! (except it's more like 15 blocks, so.... not as cool?)

  • atoz15

    just as cool!!!!
