Ellen Karis is the “Greek Goddess of Comedy” and has performed stand-up comedy all over the US and Canada. Agents and Promoters have described her as the “little dynamo” given her petite stature and unique ability to build a quick rapport with the audience.  Ellen can easily entertain any crowd with her brand of sarcastic, observational humor rooted in her conflict of being raised as a traditional Greek American woman in a modern world.  Many have described her delivery as “Richard Lewis-esque” given her energy and passion in joking about her recent marriage, her very large and loud family and the idiosyncrasies of the ever changing world we live in.  Ellen is very popular in the Greek American community being one of the few Greek female stand-up comedians performing today. She frequently performs at Church fundraisers and Greek events and has recently released her new Greek Comedy DVD “Greek Chicks Rule”. Starting out her career as a CPA, she parlayed her quick wit and job experience on Wall Street to become a panelist on many of the Fox News Channel TV shows, a frequent guest on talk radio and a contributing writer for The National Herald and Big Hollywood.  She currently co-hosts a weekly internet radio show “Right Now with Jim Mendrinos & Ellen Karis” and is writing a book “Rants of a Greek Goddess”. Ellen is also an accomplished actress having been in several independent films and TV shows including “The Sopranos”, often being asked if she played Tony’s girlfriend Gloria. Some of Ellen’s causes that she cares deeply about and has participated in raising funds and awareness for are: T.E.A.L. (“Tell Every Amazing Lady”) about Ovarian Cancer, the Rebuilding of St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church at Ground Zero and Wounded Warrior Project in Assisting Veterans.
