"Parks and Recreation" star Amy Poehler graced Saturday Night Live last night to close the season.
The ex cast member of the long running comedy sketch hour on NBC was featured on`Weekend Update' for the SNL finale along with alum and host Will Ferrell.
Massachusetts' native Poehler was a spot-on Hillary Clinton to Tina Fey's Sarah Palin during election season and the network enjoyed high ratings for those episodes.
In 2008, Poehler had her first child, a son, with husband Will Arnett.
Along with host Ferrell, also making appearances were Tom Hanks, Anne Hathaway and Paul Rudd.
Former SNL castmembers Maya Rudolph and Norm MacDonald also stopped by.
Ferrell sang Billy Joel's "Goodnight Saigon" and showcased a back-up band that included not just the comedy guest stars and the regular cast, but also actors such as "Mad Men's" Elizabeth Moss, Paul Rudd on violin, and Anne Hathaway on guitar.
