Corporate Events, Theatres, Comedy Club, Fundraisers, Birthday/Graduation/Retirement Parties, Nursing Homes, I have performed at them all in my over 15+ years experience. I work clean but can always spice it up upon request. My material is fun and smart, I talk about being married, my big Greek family, kids, social media, food obsession, getting older, working in Corporate America and more. Whether it be an intimate backyard party or an off-site for an accounting firm (I use to be a CPA), I will bring an act that will fit your needs. I live in Manhattan whether car, bus or train, I can get anywhere. Professional, reliable and can work off the cuff, I would honored to perform at your event.


BIO:
Ellen Karis is the "Greek Goddess of Comedy," and has had a successful career performing in North America alongside such notable comics as Drew Carey, Jimmy "JJ" Walker and Sebastian Maniscalco. The entertainment industry has hailed her as the "little dynamo," given her petite stature, strong improv skills and her ability to build a quick rapport with any audience. Born and raised in NYC in a traditional strict Greek home, her brand of sarcastic, observational humor has been described along the same lines as comedy legends Joan Rivers and Richard Lewis.

Her energy and passion to bring laughs to any crowd is a must see as she jokes about her marriage and family, trying to make it in show business against all odds, addiction to sweets and the absurdities of the ever changing pop culture, youth obsessed world we live in. Available for purchase, her hour comedy special "By the Way, I'm Ellen Karis" filmed in New York City, has received rave reviews. Ellen enjoys acclaim and popularity in the Greek-American community, as she is one of the few Greek female stand-up comedians performing today with her hit show "Greek Chicks Rule" also available on DVD.

Starting her career as a CPA with an MBA in Finance, she parlayed her quick wit and job experience on Wall Street to become a political humorist on many of the Fox News Channel and Current TV shows, as well as a frequent guest on talk radio and Sirius XM. After co-hosting an internet radio show for several years, she now has two weekly radio shows "Karis Comedy Corner" on and a "Being Reasonable with Ellen Karis" on the "Toughen Up America" Network. Ellen's tell it like it is, common sense views about current events combined with her personal anecdotes and interesting array of guests, has caught quite the buzz as a different and intelligent voice to hit the airwaves.

Ellen is passionate about healthy living and wellness and actively participates in several philanthropic causes such as raising funds for Ovarian Cancer Research and Transcendental Meditation to Veterans with PTSD.
