Ellie was fantastic as Joan Rivers! She pre-recorded a welcome greeting on the invitation line and served as the perfect host on the red carpet! I look forward to working with her again.
Ellie was great! She took the time to meet every single guest and had a smile on each of their faces. She was great and stayed after the show to take a picture of anyone!

Ellie began as a stage actress and voice-impressionist and was immediately told she resembled Joan Rivers. She was asked to work the red carpet at a live event, and the rest is history. She is an accomplished actress having appeared in major motion pictures and performed from coast to coast entertaining millions of people over the years as Joan Rivers.
Ellie says she has also been a "Kinder, Gentler Joan" when requested. "Sounding vocally grating and being annoying is something I avoid when performing as Joan. It's a pitfall Many other Joan Rivers impersonators fall into. There's a fine line between a caricature and an impression." She has appeared as Joan in the film "Butterscotch And Chocolate" and was a look-alike winner on The Joan Rivers Late Show in Hollywood. "I have emcee'd award and tribute shows as well as worked the Red Carpet as the Fashion Police. Occasionally doing a short stand-up routine as Joan, using her vintage material, "I have discovered her stuff never gets old, whether it's gynecology or aging "ungracefully" or dissing the Queen of England. They love it. I've even walked the real red carpet at the Academy Awards. Book me for fun fun fun!"

Thank you so much for attending Spring Fling "Diamonds Are a Girl's Best Friend". You were wonderful as "Joan" and really helped to draw our guests to the Champagne on the Rocks and the raffle. We've had a few members ask if you were going to join the League!

re: Oscar Night 2010
It was wonderful to have you at the Drake event. I really think you kicked the party up a notch! The Drake is planning on having the Oscar Party next year.
I am sure they would love to have you again, since we are expecting
more people next year. Not sure if you can hold that date for the Drake again.
Thanks again! And you looked fabulous darling!
