What is Amy Poehler's net worth?
The comedy legend is estimated to be worth $25 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth. She also makes $200 thousand in each episode. For 'Parks and Recreations' final season, Poehler got a reported $50,000 raise for each episode but that's probably because the show was only given a 13-episode order.
She got her big break when she was selected to join the cast of 'Saturday Night Live' as a featured performer in 2001, following which her popularity promoted her to a full-time cast membership during her first season.

In 2019, she made her directorial debut with the Netflix film 'Wine Country', which she also starred in alongside SNL alums Rachel Dratch, Maya Rudolph and Ana Gasteyer, along with Tina Fey.

Poehler cofounded Upright Citizens Bridgade — a sketch comedy and improv troupe in Chicago — alongside Matt Besser, Ian Roberts, Matt Walsh, Adam McKay, Rick Roman, Horatio Sanz and Drew Franklin.
The improv comic’s book 'Yes Please!', a memoir about her life featuring true stories and funny anecdotes, in 2014. Along with best friend Meredith Walker, Poehler created 'Smart Girls', an organization and website aimed at helping young women with life's problems in a funny but informative way.
She married Canadian actor Will Arnett in 2003. The couple has two sons, Archie and Abel. Poehler and Arnett worked together on several projects including the series 'Arrested Development', the 2007 film 'Blades of Glory', the Dr Seuss screen adaptation of 'Horton Hears a Who!', and Studio Ghibli and Disney's 'The Secret World of Arrietty'.
Poehler and Arnett announced their separation in September 2012, and Arnett filed for divorce in April 2014. The divorce was finalized in 2016. From 2013 until 2015, Poehler dated fellow comedian Nick Kroll.
Poehler received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame for her contributions to television, in December 2015. She won a Golden Globe Award for Best Actress in a Television Musical or Comedy Series in 2014 and a Critics' Choice Award for Best Actress in a Comedy Series in 2012. She and Tina Fey both won the 2016 Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series for co-hosting 'Saturday Night Live'.
Real estate, cars, jewelry
Poehler lives with her children in Los Angeles in a home in Beverly Hills. The property includes a guest house, but not much else is known as Poehler goes to great lengths to ensure privacy for herself and her sons. The actress and comedian paid $3.63M for the property in late 2014. She remodeled the entire house before moving in.
In 2017, she paid her ex-husband Will Arnett $6.49 million to buy him out of two condo units in New York City's West Village. The two contiguous units span 2,446 square feet and 1,693 square feet and were bought by the pair in 2007 and 2010, respectively through an LLC.
They paid a total of $8 million, for what is apparently now one combined unit. They had previously owned another unit, a few floors down in the Morton Street building, that they bought for $1.73 million in 2004 and sold for $2.2 million in 2007.
Poehler is known to keep her jewelry simple. She pinned on a diamond brooch from Lorraine Schwartz during the 2019 Academy Awards. The comedienne has owned two AG Jewelry pieces, a bracelet and a pair of earrings. At the 72nd Annual Academy Awards in 2000, Poehler wore platinum by Beladora.
Her red carpet look consisted of platinum and diamond earrings, signed by Tiffany & Co., a platinum and 7.7-carat diamond necklace with South Sea pearl and stacked platinum and diamond bracelets. At the 2013 Emmy awards, Poehler added color into the mix with orange sunburst dangle earrings by Irene Neuwirth. In 2015, she wore an Irene Neuwirth labradorite necklace, ring and piled-on bracelets: fresh, modern, flattering and so wearable.
Larissa Loden has a pair of earrings named after her after the "boss babe". It consists of two brass u shapes arranged in a rainbow, and sizes upto 2 inches long on 14k gold-filled ear wires. You can buy it on their website for $34.
Poehler owns a Mercedes Benz. She had accidentally locked herself out of her brand new car in 2014, according to Daily Mail.
