What a Night! Variety’s Power of Comedy Benefiting Noreen Fraser Foundation!

It may have been raining in Hollywood on Saturday night, but the stars were out in force for Variety’s Power of Comedy, benefiting the Noreen Fraser Foundation. We were on the carpet and backstage to bring you the very best of the hilarious night. Check out the galleries below for photos! One of our favorite moments from the night is Will Ferrell presenting the 2011 Power of Comedy award to Amy Poehler: What happens next? Amy Poehler's hilarious acceptance speech! Other favorite selections from the night: Emcee Andy Richter's comedic stylings. Poehler's husband Will Arnett -- along with Arrested Development colleagues David Cross and Mitch Hurwitz -- gave a heartfelt tribute to the honoree, complete with photo slideshow. Maya Rudolph loves Amy Poehler -- and maybe not in the way that you think. She paid tribute to Amy with a song by "the always-tasteful R. Kelly." Sarah Silverman reminisced about some, er, "touching" childhood memories. A quick FYI: per Amy's speech, anyone who didn't show up in person is "dead" to her, even if they sent a hilarious video tribute. So...sorry, Zach Galifianakis (and Zach Galifianakis' mom / camera tech). Russell Brand's video was equally amazing, and included a shout-out to the women behind the Noreen Fraser Foundation, including Noreen and Foundation VP Michelle McBride.
