AMERICAN First Lady Michelle Obama has made a hilarious cameo appearance on comedy show 'Parks and Recreation'.

The 50-year-old former lawyer was the most famous face to take part in a star studded season finale of the Amy Poehler.

Obama played herself in the show, as the key note speaker at the National Parks Conference.

The episode sees Poehler's character the ever-bubbly Leslie Knope trying to decide whether she should leave Pawnee and thake a job in Chicago.

As she struggles to decide what to do, she runs into the first lady at the conference.

The scene sees an incredibly awkward Knope struggle with what to say - and offering the first lady a cringey high five.

"You know how I feel about Chicago," Michelle, who was dressed in a high-necked polka dot dress, told Leslie.

Leslie could only respond: "I agree with you on all things, throughout history and until the end of time forever."

"Well I hope you take the job", replies Mrs. Obama.

"Change happens one person at a time," she added.


'Parks and Recreation' has been a huge ratings hit in the US - however it is believed it will end after its next season in 2015.

Its star Poehler shot to fame on 'Saturday Night Live' alongside fellow stars Tina Fey and Kristen Wiig.

'Parks and Recreation' is broadcast in Ireland on RTE Two.
