“There is really no difference between Ellen, the stand-up, or Ellen, the talk show host, or even Ellen at home. The humor that I'm still writing that you see every day on the show is the same as when I did stand-up, as when I toured. It's just kind of commentating on absurdities and human behavior. So, as far as the special how goes, it's not like I'm going to be topless or start cursing all of a sudden. It's pretty much the same. Although now that I mentioned it, I may be topless. That's sounds actually kind of exciting.”
