We bet this is something Amy probably wanted to stayed buried…

Amy Poehler is undoubtedly one of the leading voices in comedy today.

Whether she’s starring in her own projects like Parks and Recreation, hosting The Oscars with BFF Tina Fey, or showing her chops on Saturday Night Live, she always lights up the room.

However, everyone has to get their start somewhere, and we now know what Amy was up to before landing her career-starting SNL gig.

We knew Amy honed her improv at Second City in Chicago, but the comedy house just released a clip of Amy’s unaired TV pilot RVTV, and it’s everything we could have hoped for!

There’s early internet references, cheesy rapping, and vests!

We get why this wasn’t picked up to series, but it’s nice to see that Amy had leading lady qualities way back in 1995!

Ch-ch-check out the best bits of Amy Poehler’s never-before-seen RVTV (below)!!!
