Before Ellen had her talk show, she had her very own sitcom series. She is one of the wittiest of the lot. Before we witness Ellen’s best moments on the show, here’s a background about her that is equally inspiring.
Her first time in a large crowd was at a public speaking event. To ease her nerves in the situation, humor became her shield. It turned out everyone loved her humor, and she soon started getting offers for stand-up comedy. Since then, Ellen has been a woman in shining armor.
Before she realized her ultimate strength, Ellen did a lot of odd jobs, much like everyone else. She waited tables, sold vacuum cleaners, painted houses, and worked as a legal secretary. By the time she was 23, she began performing stand-up in local coffee houses.
People were starting to like her and she was suddenly being discovered. Her big debut was in 1986, during her first appears on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson. She was the first woman comedian to have received the honor to sit on the “couch” next to Carson. After that, she made many appears on talk shows like The Late Night Show with David Letterman, The Oprah Winfrey Show, and the Tonight Show with Jay Leno. People loved her for being a genuine person that you wanted to see again and again.
Soon, she was an absolute sensation. Her wit swooned audiences everywhere, and in 1994, her very own sitcom called Ellen came on air. The show had to face very strong criticism when Ellen became the first woman on television to come out as gay and play a gay character. Apart from people who disliked the show, many loved it. In 1998, the show was canceled.
Afterwards, she stood for gay rights and was supported by the community. In 2003, she began broadcasting The Ellen DeGeneres show. Today, The Ellen DeGeneres Show is one of the most successful talk shows on television
