  1. 1

    As a stand up comedian, I never found Ellen funny. However, as an emcee, talk show host and a person she is a charming, warm and relatable person.



  2. 2

    I'm disappointed. I wanted Tina & Amy to host. Ellen sometimes relies too much on "charm" and not on actually being funny.

    Jeremiah. although Ruth`s story is exceptional, on saturday I bought Subaru Impreza after making $7238 this - four weeks past and just over $10,000 lass month. this is certainly the most-comfortable work I've had. I actually started 3 months ago and straight away started bringing in at least $81 per/hr. useful source W­W­W.B­A­M­2­1.C­O­M
