Comedienne, actress, and Hillary Clinton-impressionist, Amy Poehler is set to leave SNL after the U.S. election in November, although the election has little to do with it. Poehler will be on maternity leave and plans to focus her energy on her role in an upcoming spin-off from “The Office“.
Amy Poehler will be leaving “Saturday Night Live” after the November election. Poehler told Men’s Vogue that she will go on maternity leave after the election and won’t return to NBC’s late-night sketch show after giving birth to her first child.
Instead, she will focus on her upcoming primetime NBC series, a spin-off from “The Office.”
