Special Guest Host Ellie Kemper
We’re ready for the weekend on The Ellen Show, and Ellen’s special guest host is ELLIE KEMPER! This isn’t the hilarious actress’ first time hosting – she did such a terrific job last time, Ellen invited her to do it again! She’s got a truly unbreakable funny streak, starring in her Netflix series “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” and “The Office”! The charming and talented actress is here to shake things up in a way only she can, so make sure you tune in for this very special day!
First, the incredible MINNIE DRIVER is here! Minnie has been part of some of the most memorable films, including “Grosse Pointe Blank” and “The Phantom of the Opera,” and in hit TV series like “The Riches,” and fun appearances on “Will & Grace” and “Absolutely Fabulous”! Today, Minnie visits with Ellie to talk about her hit show, “Speechless”! The star of the ABC series will certainly have plenty to talk about!
Then, he’s bringing the fun… it’s scientist STEVE SPANGLER! The CEO, television personality, and science teacher has dazzled Ellen’s audience with so many fun experiments over the years, and we’re sure he’ll have a few to delight our special host Ellie! He’s responsible for so many viral videos of crazy tricks and experiments, like the famous Mentos and Diet Coke trick! It’s sure to be a fun time when Steve stops by, and you’re bound to see something exciting!
Plus, one of the brightest stars in country music is stopping by – it’s BRETT YOUNG! You’ll be an instant fan when you see him perform today. He’ll be playing his hit song “Here Tonight,” from his album “Ticket to L.A.”! Don’t miss Brett when he stops by today!
TGIF, on Ellen!
