Before Julie Klausner was making viewers laugh as the star of Hulu’s new comedy Difficult People, she was wooing one very special audience member: Amy Poehler.

For EW’s First and Worst video series, Klausner recalls taking comedy classes at the UCB Theatre after graduating college. And when Klausner got the chance to learn from Poehler, she made the most out of the opportunity. See the full narrative above.  

Fans can check out the first three episodes of Difficult People, currently streaming on Hulu. New episodes Wednesdays.
