Returning to Sydney for the first time since 2015, Poehler’s not-to-be-missed In Conversation event will be followed by a bespoke 30-minute Inside Out 2 projection on Customs House at Circular Quay – some consolation for those who may have missed out on tickets to the main event. Poehler reprises her role as the voice of Joy in this sequel to Disney and Pixar’s Academy Award-winning and critically acclaimed film Inside Out (2015).

“I’m really looking forward to taking part in Vivid Sydney this year, a place that welcomes Joy in every way,” says Poehler. “I can’t wait to share a little of Inside Out 2: a movie that lets Joy and Sadness, Anxiety and Envy—all try to work together in hilarious and touching ways.”

Poehler’s illustrious career has spanned comedy and writing, with notable roles including her portrayal in the Emmy-nominated NBC comedy series Parks and Recreation. Her depiction of Hillary Clinton on Saturday Night Live during the 2008 Presidential Election garnered widespread acclaim, culminating in her final season as the beloved co-anchor of Weekend Update. 

In 2015, Poehler’s return to Saturday Night Live alongside Tina Fey earned her an Emmy for ‘Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series’. Her literary debut Yes Please dominated the New York Times Best Sellers list in October 2014, maintaining its position for over 23 weeks.
