Prove Your Pawnee Proficiency with Our Parks and Recreation Quiz

Parks and Recreation was one of the funniest shows on television for its six-year run, applauded by critics and fans alike. But, that wasn't always the case; at one point the studio even considered canceling it. NBC expected Parks and Rec to hit the ground running, but for the first season, both critics and audiences seemed to hate it and continuously compared it to mockumentary shows that had come before. The showrunners, however, listened to fans and tweaked certain elements of the show for its second season, after which its popularity launched into the stratosphere. Do you love Parks and Rec? We're betting you do, and that's why you're here. Well, beware, this test is not for the faint of heart. Some of these questions are incredibly easy, while others are so specific and obscure, only a super-fan could possibly answer them. After you get your results, share the quiz with your friends and see which one of you truly knows Parks and Rec the best. Good luck!

How Long Was Amy Poehler Working Before She Hit The Big-Time?

Amy Poehler may seem like she was always destined for comedy fame. She grew up in Burlington, a blue-collar town in Massachusetts. While attending Boston College, she got her start in improv theater with the college's improv comedy troupe "My Mother's Fleabag." After graduating with a degree in media and communications, she could have gone into marketing, or finance, or any other "normal" career — but the comedy bug had bitten. She then went off to study in Chicago with improv legend Charna Halpern at ImprovOlympic and waitressed on the side to keep her bills paid. It was here that she met Tina Fey. After that, she auditioned for SNL, and the rest is history.
