QUESTION: how long did it take Amy Poehler to apply her wig in the recent episode of CBB on IFC?
SCOTT AUKERMAN: I think it took Amy about seven hours in the makeup chair – applying the wig, applying the blue bodypaint, taking OFF the blue bodypaint, then realizing the wig was on backwards… but that was her commitment to the Amy Poehler character!
QUESTION: Why was Amy Poehler wearing a wig?
SCOTT AUKERMAN: Amy got to the studio, saw the wig (which we were using for a different sketch – one where Neil Campbell was playing God), and asked if she could wear it on the show. Being the type of guy who knows never to say no to a funny person, I of course said yes! I think it adds a level of weirdness to her interview that we both really liked. (x)
