Rate this Stand up comedian: Ellen Degeneres?

Ellen Degeneres' stand-up career started in the early 1980s, and included a 1986 appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson. She starred in the popular sitcom Ellen from 1994 to 1998 and has hosted her syndicated TV talk show, The Ellen DeGeneres Show, since 2003. Her comedic style can be described as an understated method-- something like the female version of Bob Newhart. She does not use crazy voices, comedic characters, impersonations, props or other comedic devices in her comedy. Instead she relies upon a relate-able down-to-earth approach using a few choice words in a subtle way.

  • Funny, she doesn't blow me away but her act is pleasant and entertaining.
    I like her more than any female comedians whose whole act is just talking about sex.

    • Why the two downvotes? Lol
      Some people huh?

    • They probably don’t like her as a person so they ignored the actual question which is rating her humor. Not who she is.
      Wild guess maybe I’m wrong.

  • I remember seeing her on TV in the 1980s. She was just OK.

  • Gonna say 2/5. Her standup specials had some moments but I strongly dislike her show & find her to be a bland & uncharismatic personality.

  • Not very good. She's like a version of oprah who tries to be cool and funny and it's just embarrassing.

  • Quite funny. I had no idea she did stand up. She's had her talk show on for so long that I thought she just started with that.

  • Meh.. She can be funny, but is too topical with her humor. She's a wonderful talk show host and has quick banter. Plus her wife is hot! 2 out of 5.

  • I don't find her very funny. I think most of her fame is due to coming out on television, once she did she milked it for years
