Amy Poehler Comments On Death Of ‘Parks & Rec’ Producer Harris Wittels

Amy Poehler was honored at Thursday night’s unite4:humanity gala for her work with Worldwide Orphans Foundation, but the “Parks and Recreation” star used the event to pay tribute to Harris Wittels. The 30-year-old “Parks and Rec” producer, writer and guest star died on Thursday at his home.

“Today, I lost a friend,” Poehler said. “I lost a dear young man in my life, who was struggling with addiction and who died. Just a few hours before we came. […] I’m sharing it with you because life and death live so close together and we walk that fine line every day. At the end of the day when things happen in our lives we turn to the people that we love and we look to our family and our community for support and we lean on people in a hope that they will ease our pain.”

Wittels had gone to rehab twice for drug addiction. He memorably talked about it during an episode of the Nerdist podcast “You Made It Weird.”

“I have done drugs recreationally since I was, like, 12,” Wittels said in the episode, which aired in November of last year. “The thing that happens with opiates is you get sick. You fucking go into withdrawals. So now it’s like I have to do drugs, or I’m not well.”

No cause of death has been determined for Wittels yet. According to the Los Angeles Times, an autopsy will likely be performed this weekend and results of any toxicology tests will not be known for more than six weeks.

Poehler wasn’t the only member of the “Parks and Recreation” team to comment Wittels’ death. Rob Lowe, who also appeared on the show, tweeted his condolences:

4 Charming ‘SNL’ Stories From Amy Poehler & Seth Meyers

As part of the promotional push for her new book, “Yes Please,” Amy Poehler sat down with Seth Meyers at New York’s 92Y on Wednesday to discuss her career, their friendship and “Saturday Night Live.” Poehler and Meyers were both hired before the start of the 2001-02 season, and shared the Weekend Update desk from 2006-08. Ahead, four of the best “SNL” anecdotes they shared with the 92Y audience (but not that one about Jon Hamm making Amy Poehler laugh while she was pregnant, because she might have told that one a billion times in the last month).

1. Amy’s Sarah Palin rap was one of Seth’s favorite “SNL” moments

“I was on the show for 12 and a half years, and there were maybe 10 times where you thought you fucking nailed it. That you wished no part of it had gone different,” Meyers said. “It’s like when baseball players hit the ball and flip the bat because they know it’s going out of the park.” That’s how Meyers felt about Poehler’s Sarah Palin rap during Weekend Update, which she performed while being nine months pregnant and in front of Palin herself.

“I was an animal. It’s really fun to be that pregnant because you freak everybody out,” Poehler said.

2. Amy thought Ashlee Simpson’s lip-sync flub wasn’t a big deal

It’s a story Poehler recounts in “Yes Please”: This is what the reaction was like backstage when Ashlee Simpson was caught lip-syncing during her “SNL” performance.

“We were about to do a Merv the Perv sketch. I was dressed as ‘Kill Bill.’ Rachel Dratch was Raggedy Ann. And Maya Rudolph was in a pregnant cat suit,” Poehler said. “They ran by, and it was one of those things where it was so hectic that we hid under the table.” Poehler recalled how Lesley Stahl happened to be backstage as well, as “60 Minutes” was following Lorne Michaels around for a segment on the “SNL” executive producer. Her recollection from under the table: “A thin lady with heels ran by.”

For Meyers, things were a little different. “I was getting hair and makeup, so I didn’t see it. It was like being in the town next over when Godzilla attacks. People ran by [screaming],” he said.

Despite the chaos, Poehler felt the incident would blow over.

“I remember drunkenly at the party being like it’s not a big deal, nobody’s going to care,” she said before mimicking her drunk voice. “‘Who cares? Nobody is going to talk about it tomorrow.'”

3. Johnny Knoxville apparently brought loose pills to “SNL”

When Johnny Knoxville hosted “SNL,” Rachel Dratch threw her back out after sneezing during the read-through couldn’t move. Fortunately, Knoxville was there to offer some assistance. “He reached into his pockets and pulled out 12 loose pills,” Poehler said. “None of them were downers. All of them only wanted to make you want to party.”

As it turned out, Dratch didn’t need Knoxville’s pharmaceuticals. She received help from the NBC doctor. “She brought the Vicodin, and Rachel didn’t want to take one,” Poehler said. “Everyone else was like, ‘You should take one.'”

4. Amy & Seth’s first show was after 9/11, and it started with a “beautiful joke”

Poehler and Meyers both started on the show in 2001, and their first read-through was supposed to happen on Sept. 11.

“It was a very strange time to be starting a new job at a weekly comedy variety show,” Poehler said. “There was a lot of talk about comedy being over. There was a lot of, ‘Will we ever laugh again?’ That happened, of course, when JFK died. There were all these proclamations about when will we ever be able to get back. That felt truly … it really felt like we were never going to get back anywhere close to where we were. The wound felt so psychic. I was living in New York for six or seven years, so it was my hometown at that point.”

Poehler recalled how the aftermath of the terrorist attacks mixed with the jitters associated with starting a new job created an odd juxtaposition. “It was just that combination of, ‘Where are the bathrooms? And are we gonna die?'” she said. “Also there was anthrax in our building, which was great too.”

The season premiere aired on Sept. 29, 2001 with Reese Witherspoon as host. Paul Simon sang “The Boxer” at the beginning of the show as a group of first responders and Mayor Rudolph Giuliani appeared on stage. After Simon’s song, Lorne Michaels came out.

“It was a beautiful New York moment and there was that great joke where Lorne says to Mayor Giuliani, ‘Can we be funny?’ And Mayor Giuliani says, ‘Why start now?’ It’s so hard to write a joke like that. What fucking joke do you open with?” Poehler said. “It’s so self-effacing and funny. The mayor gets the laugh. It’s just a beautiful joke. We wanted the mayor to be in charge.”

After the show, Poehler and the cast went to the after-party with some of the first responders. “Those guys were a blast,” Poehler said. “They were just full of life, having seen so much sadness. Life and death, sadness and happiness live right next to each other. If you’re lucky you get to serve them both. That was an amazing time to be on that show for sure.”

Are Kat Dennings And Beth Behrs The New Tina Fey And Amy Poehler?

Kat Dennings and Beth Behrs, the stars of the CBS sitcom “Two Broke Girls,” are looking more and more like they might become the next great awards-show duo, following in the footsteps of Tina Fey and Amy Poehler.

Dennings and Behrs will host this year’s People’s Choice Awards, but can they reach the bar that Fey and Poehler have set with the Golden Globes? It looks like Behrs is taking Fey and Poehler as inspiration. “I saw a promo for Amy [Poehler] and Tina [Fey] where they were singing at a piano,” she told People Magazine. “I just think they’re so genius. We could learn a lot from them. They’re so funny.”

The “Two Broke Girls” co-stars have got some big shoes to fill if they’re going to become the next Tina and Amy, but they’re on the right track. Check out how they’re starting to look a lot our favorite awards emcees.

Tina and Amy made their mark acting together …

… and so have Dennings and Behrs.

Our old favorites are real life besties …

tina fey amy poehler

… and so are the newbies!

The former “SNL” co-stars are known for being wonderfully silly …

tina fey amy poehler

… and the ladies of “Two Broke Girls” are goofy and fun, as well.

Heck, both duos even have the blond/brunette contrast going on.

tina fey amy poehler

It must be fate.

kat dennings beth behrs

By this logic, it only makes sense that they’re following in Fey and Poehler’s award show-hosting footsteps …

But are they up to the task? We’ll see on Wednesday night at the People’s Choice Awards.

Amy Poehler Knows How ‘Parks And Rec’ Will End

While “Parks And Rec” fans are mourning the hiatus we must endure until 2014, Amy Poehler is opening up about the show’s inevitable end.

“To some extent, with the exception of one or two seasons, we never really know if we’re coming back,” Poehler said in an interview with Paper magazine. “I know how this season ends — it could be an ending for the show, or it could be an ending for the season.”

“I think I know how the show ends,” she added.

First Rob Lowe and Rashida Jones leave, now Poehler’s preparing for the end? This is too much for our Pawnee-loving hearts to handle.

“Parks And Rec” returns to NBC in 2014.
