Wearing heels and still a good 5 inches shorter than Paul Rudd whose 5'9ish in shoes I would say she's a weak 5'4 in heels probably 5'1.5 barefeet.

She's definitely about 5'1

Short, but not as short as people are saying. Could see her at 5’3”.

Often wear's high heels on Parks and Rec, and still gets towered over by average height men. I'd have to agree with this listing.

I think it’s time for a downgrade. 5’1-1.5”

Looks tiny next to Bradley cooper and a good bit shorter than all parks and rec stars. Barely 5"1

I'd say that she is about 5'2". She was about 1 foot shorter than Hugh Laurie on SNL, and he is a little over 6'2.

Why Joey? Do you automatically downgrade everyone? 5'2 seems right.

I agree with MaxB. She looks as tall as Aubrey Plaza, who is 5'6". I seriously didn't think she was this small

She's 5'1, looks exactly a foot smaller than 6'3 John Krasinski, when wearing heels.

She's tiny, which I didn't realize at first. On Parks and Recreations she makes average height people look like 6+ footers. It's not that they are all tall or average, it's that she's so short.

She was standing next to me at the bar at a party tonight. She is really quite short. I actually had to get the bartender to serve her cause she was short, they kept looking right over her. Even with three inch heels, I would say closer to 5-1.

I am kinda confused about her, for the longest time I would have agreed with the 5'2 listing but it seems to me on one episode of SNL Christina Aguilera actually had about a half inch to inch on her and Christina can't be more then what she is listed on here if not less. I guess that'd make Amy only about 5'1 considering her husband is really 6'1 (seems to me on an episode of Arrested Development they showed everyone's mugshot and he was standing at 6'1)

I saw Amy Poehler's monologue with Scarlett Johansson--twice. Scarlett (at 5'4") seemed to tower over Amy. There is no way she's 5'2"! I say she's 5' at most.

Watching SNL - Scarlett Johansson and Poehler are the EXACT same height wearing the EXACT same shoes. Scarlett downgrade to 5'2".

She most definitely is a short, petite woman. She's easily one of the shortest of the castmates (along with Rachel Dratch) which is why she is able to convincingly play the part of a child in some skits. lol
