|With her good-natured smile and fast-talking wit, Ellen DeGeneres lights up audiences from coast to coast. The happy-go-luckiest woman in showbiz today, DeGeneres has graduated from the stand-up comedy circuit to become one of the Top Ten Comedians as named by Entertainment Weekly!|
DeGeneres first catapulted to the A-List with the groundbreaking ABC sitcom, Ellen. Spotlighting her talents as a hilarious writer and performer, the Emmy Award-winning Ellen melded the humor of everyday life with quirky plots and the easy-breezy stylings of its star's stand-up act.
Originally aired as "These Friends of Mine," this rarely-seen debut season of Ellen stars DeGeneres as mildly neurotic Los Angeles bookseller Ellen Morgan, whose nervous motor-mouthing often gets her in trouble, especially with her best friends Adam (Arye Gross), Anita (Maggie Wheeler), and Holly (Holly Fulger).
Featuring all 13 episodes from its unforgettable first season--including 2 reclaimed episodes filmed in the first season but not aired until Season Three--Ellen: The Complete Season One is a laugh-out-loud piece of television history, featuring cameo appearances by Giovanni Ribisi, Molly Shannon, and Harland Williams.
