Description

'Why write a second book, you ask? Because there are some words I didn't use in the first one,' Ellen quipped when asked about her new collection of essays. Sharply observant and brilliantsly absurd, Ellen's unique voice and original perspective made her first book, MY POINT...AND I DO HAVE ONE, an instant, #1 New York Times bestseller. Now she turns her attention once again to the written word, spinning simple observations into imaginative essays, mixing her trademaek self-deprecating wit with a smart sophistication perfectly tailored for the page. Here Ellen offeres riffs on everything from why a prison stay might not be so bad to a eulogy for her coffee addiction; from her memories of a visit to God's house to how salespeople have figured out that saying 'It makes your ass look fabulous!' will get you to buy just about anything. Whimsical, clever and always spot-on observant, THE FUNNY THING IS... is a satisfying follow-up to Ellen's smash hit bestseller - a collection that perfectly captures the brilliance of this comic supernova.

Review quote

Entertainment Weekly DeGeneres is in top form with her second collection of kooky observations....Her strongest assets -- a-hard won dignity and softly skewed worldview -- are on chuckle-inducing display throughout.
