Cheering for Ellen
in her TV studio
WHY ELLEN NEEDS YOU
Seriously funny Ellen DeGeneres sheds some light on why her show may be
the best one to attend on the planet.
WHY DO YOU
LOVE A LIVE
They bring such
a positive energy,
and I try to give it
back to them. It's
also important that
they each buy a
souvenir from the
Ellen shop-I can't
express that enough.
WHAT DO YOU LOVE ABOUT
I'm not just entertaining people, I also get
to help people in need, and I love it when
they get excited. I once gave a woman
named Lisa Jarmon a new house-if you

can still hear her screaming.
DO SOME AUDIENCE MEMBERS TRY
TO GET "NOTICED"? DOES IT WORK?
Before the show everyone comes on stage
and dances. I watch them from my dressing
room, and there's two ways they can get
noticed: If they're very, very good, or if
they're very, very bad.
DOES THE AUDIENCE GET TO
INTERACT WITH GUESTS?
A lot of times they get to play games with
our guests. They're always so excited,
especially when they get to be on my team
because I always win.

Tips on Seeing
GET TICKETS ASAP As soon as you
know your travel dates, visit ticket sites
(try tvtickets.com, tvtix.com, and 1iota.
com), and request free tickets. Same-day
tickets for Conan and other shows are
sometimes offered following the Warner
Bros. VIP Studio Tour. Popular shows like
American Idol have their own ticketing
systems; check individual websites.
TAKE A CHANCE You never know if that
pilot might be the next Friends, so go
ahead and see a new show.
SET ASIDE TIME Sitcoms take hours to
shoot, so be prepared. Less time? Attend
a talk show-sometimes shot in a little
over an hour (plus pre-show wait-time).
