Amy Poehler Explains Why Charity Work Is So Awesome

The coolest fact we learned this week: working to support a cause isn’t just “good for your ego”—it also “makes your ass smaller.”

At least that’s what Amy Poehler told the audience at Variety‘s 5th annual Power of Women event earlier this month when explaining why she loves working with the Worldwide Orphans Foundation. SPOILER: there will be tears.

Our favorite Upright Citizens Brigade alumnus salutes the ”beautiful, bossy, right-amount-of-crazy” ladies in the audience after explaining that she devotes herself to charity work because she wants ”…to be around people who dream…and do things.

If you’re not at least slightly moved by this speech then we don’t really know what to tell you.

Poehler also held an “Emmy losers party” with Donald “Jon Hamm” Draper last month to benefit the WWO. Those interested in the group might want to check out November’s 9th annual gala hosted by Seth Meyers, who will be the fourth best “Weekend Update” host in the room if Poehler,  Tina Fey and Jimmy Fallon show up. (There’s a reason he won’t be hosting the Golden Globes for the next two years.)

SNL Makes the Public Laugh about Google Glass

The hype around the release of Google Glass has been excruciating for much of the public. From bazillionaire Sergey Brin being “accidentally” spotted wearing the connected eyewear on New York City’s subways to the absurd, hip credentials and bank accounts early adopters must demonstrate before proving themselves worthy of an untested commodity, the whole Google Glass buzz machine has become tedious.

Enter Saturday Night Live and Fred Armisen and Seth Meyers, who, via a hilarious skit late Saturday night, nailed public sentiment. The Google Glass public relations blitz started strong but fell victim to its own unwieldy inertia by inundating the public with ubiquitous marketing efforts while only allowing select individuals access to the product. Backlash was inevitable.

Seth Meyers Makes Fun Of Social Media

Saturday Night Live‘s Seth Meyers had a room full of New York digital media types laughing hysterically last night at an event hosted by social marketing company Buddy Media.

We transcribed some of Meyers’ social media zingers. Jokes after the jump.
