Ellen DeGeneres is a stand-up comedian, actor, author, and TV host whose daytime talk show won an unprecedented fifteen Emmy Awards just in its first three seasons. She made television history in 1986 as the first female comedian to be invited by Johnny Carson to the famed "couch" after her first performance on his show, and in 1997 when she (followed shortly by her sitcom character on Ellen) revealed her homosexuality to Oprah Winfrey on the air. This profile offers insight into Ellen DeGeneres' life and the career ups and downs that led to her success.
