Ellen DeGeneres is one of the most popular contemporary comedians and the host of a successful daytime talk show. She is perhaps best known to young audiences as the voice of the endearing but absentminded fish Dory in the blockbuster animated hit Finding Nemo , a role that perfectly captured her rambling, seemingly unrehearsed comic style. After rising through the ranks of stand-up comedy during the s and early s, DeGeneres became a successful television star with her show Ellen in the mids. Her career became temporarily derailed in the late s, but she got back on track a few years later, surpassing her earlier successes by a long shot.
