No joke: Amy Poehler's leaving Saturday Night Live.But this is OK, right...
According to the Los Angeles Times, she tells the new issue of Men's Vogue that she is taking a break after the November election as she prepares to welcome her first child. And she won't be returning after maternity leave.
"It's gonna be really hard Boyz II Men hard to say goodbye to yesterday," she says. "SNL was dangerous, late-night, last-minute and star-studded, but like any good drug, you need to know when to put it down."
Poehler won't be off the small screen altogether.My early, uneducated prediction is that any Office spin-off will fail.
She has signed on for NBC's upcoming Office spin-off, set to air next year.
