Montreal is about to get a tad funnier as Ellen DeGeneres is on her way to La Belle Province.
The 61-year-old talk show host and comedian will be at Montreal’s Bell Centre on Friday, March 1 for a Q&A style show called “A Conversation with Ellen DeGeneres.”
DeGeneres is an American comedian, television host, actress, writer, producer and LGBT activist. She starred in the popular sitcom, Ellen, from 1994 to 1998 and has been hosting her syndicated TV talk show, The Ellen DeGeneres Show, since 2003.
“Ellen DeGeneres continues to deliver uplifting, inspiring, and hilarious experiences for her fans,” reads the Evenko website. “Her distinctive comedic voice and infectious personality have earned her recognition as a household name and a global entertainer. ‘A Conversation with Ellen DeGeneres’ will highlight her one-of-a-kind sense of humour, warmth, and kindness.”
In December, Netflix released Ellen’s first stand up special in 15 years, entitled “Relatable.” Filmed at Seattle’s Benaroya Hall, the special was celebrated by both critics and fans.
After visiting Montreal, Ellen will swing by Toronto’s Scotiabank Arena on March 3 for two shows.
