Yes, it's true that the commercials she's in are lame, but then again... they're commercials, so....

Hell, Nick Offerman, who is also from from the same show and who played one of the greatest "guy" characters in the history of TV, is now doing those dumbass "Sling TV" ads which aren't funny either.

But that doesn't make him less funny or talented as a comedic actor.

I don't think one can really judge a person's talent by their commercial work. They're only doing them for the big, fat, lucrative paydays anyway, and probably have little or no creative input into them.

Poehler, lame commercials aside, is still a pretty good comic actress.

I cannot believe in 2019 we're seeing a bit with a "Pulling my leg" gag.  Ugh.

I just thought of an appropriate addition to the "Shakedown" commercial.
"Billy, did your mom lose her vibrator again? What a b*tch!"
Aslo, from the "Starring Amy" selection, it looks like she had to do an awful lot of takes with that pizza commercial. Hey Amy... enough with the bread already!

This woman reminds me of every annoying bitchy soccer mom stereotype ever created. She has that "obnoxious, snooty customer who talks down to everyone" aura to her.  I don't think she's that funny.

I like Amy Poehler and am always happy to see SNL people go on to great success.  The world needs all the comedians and laughter it can get these days.

The problem with the "Starring Amy" ad (2nd video in the initial post here) isn't Poehler, it's Xfinity. Because they keep doing the same lame "it's all about me" joke over and over with different celebs. The first time was with the obnoxious Mindy Kaling, and they've done it with others too. I don't mind Poehler in general, but the premise of the commercial is TIRED.

We can't even get Xfinity here, Charter has a monopoly unless you go with a dish.  Speaking of Spectrum!

They raised the internet from $69 to $73. Angry The same day the bill came Spectrum sent out a special deal, JUST FOR US! TV and Internet for only $45 a month! *Limited Time Offer*  SCREW THEM!!

It seems Xfinity is trying to save money by hiring "B" and "C" list comedians. As was already posted here, Amy Poehler is NOT funny! Even with top notch material she is only marginally amusing. Another one that bugs the "you know what" out of me is Maya Rudolph. I have yet to see ANYTHING with her that is remotely amusing or entertaining. The list goes on, but those, IMHO, are the top offenders

No, I don't find them remotely comical also. As for Maya, I've been seeing her in new HULU commercials. (eyeroll!)
