Is that the biggest popcorn you have....that bucket?
16 August 2013 | by blanche-2See all my reviews

Ellen DeGeneres: Here and Now is a standup act that Ellen DeGeneres did for HBO, and it is excellent. Ellen talks about procrastination and the importance of it, and everyday things like call waiting, stuffing yourself in the dark of a movie theater, tripping and then pretending you're running, laughing when you fall in front of people, even if you're bleeding, and technology.

No one has delivery like Ellen. The way her voice trails off that makes the punchline sound like an afterthought - hilarious.

She talks about things that we all can relate to, things we've all thought. And she makes some good points. "You can't save time," she points out. "You can merely spend it. That makes procrastination so right." But in this case, don't procrastinate - see this.
