The Best Time April Ludgate Broke Character On Parks & Recreation

From 2009 to 2015 Parks and Recreation became a highlight of NBCs programming schedule for multiple reasons. Its unapologetic mockery of the lower levels of United States politics provided no shortage of laughs and its handheld mockumentary like shooting style similar to creators Greg Daniels and Michael Schurs other beloved series the US version of The Office helped it stand out among other sitcoms of the era. Not to mention it showcased an unforgettable cast that ranged from frequent faces at the Pawnee Indiana Parks and Recreation Department to one off supporting characters.

Throughout its seven seasons on the air an ensemble crew took center stage led by Amy Poehlers endlessly optimistic and selfless Leslie Knope. Nick Offerman joined her as the stern rugged Ron Swanson Rashida Jones as her close friend Ann Perkins and Adam Scott as her future husband Ben Wyatt. The likes of Donna Meagle Retta Tom Haverford Aziz Ansari and Garry Gergich Jim OHeir would also factor into the story from time to time much like Anns goofy oblivious ex boyfriend Andy Dwyer Chris Pratt and his eventual wife the grim and monotone April Ludgate Aubrey Plaza.Thanks to Plazas deadpan performance and the characters numerous memorable moments April endures as one of the most popular Parks and Rec characters of the bunch. As if she wasnt funny enough on the show though Plaza has broken character a few times with this instance standing out as arguably the funniest.

Aubrey Plazas attempted Season 2 improv was too funny

The season 2 episode Woman of the Year put Ron in some hot water with Leslie when they learn who won the coveted Dorothy Everton Smythe Female Empowerment Award from the Indiana Organization of Women. Ron received the honor making him the first man in history to do so and as salt in Leslies wound her work was falsely attributed to him thus earning him the award. After a bit of joking at her expense Ron who couldnt care less about accolades to begin with writes to the IOW with the intention of passing the award to Leslie instead.

Upon doing this the director of the IOW Elise Yarktin Maribeth Monroe visits Ron and Leslie to explain he only got the award for the sake of marketing. In the episode April unenthusiastically brings her to Rons office before leaving with a quick glare at the camera. However in the Season 2 blooper reel via Comedy Bites Plaza attempts to make an over the top gesture while introducing Yarktin getting her name wrong and letting out a giggle in the process. Everyone else in the scene cant help but crack up too thanks to the absurdity of what they just saw.It wasnt uncommon for Aubrey Plaza to break character as April Ludgate on the Parks and Recreation set but this is a standout instance. Between her unexpected posing botching of Yarktins name Monroes try at keeping the scene alive and the rest of the casts laughter how could it not be?
