Ellen Show Parody. A spoof episode of The Ellen Show made in my living room for a charity dress up project called #DressForME. Non profit, just for fun.
My social media links on Link Tree: https://linktr.ee/DressForME
I dress up as:
Ellen/Jellen, Ellen’s long-lost British cousin (Jen – Ellen – Jellen)
Twitch, or rather his low budget white British cousin, Itch, that looks like a Canadian Mountie (Sorry Twitch I tried my best, but can’t do your coolness or dancing justice.)
Producers Andy Lassner & Mary Connelly (lol)
Andy Zenor (hehe)
With special thanks to my mum & my friends Jenny, Lucy, Alexis, David & Lucy’s children for being audience members.
It took over 4 months to make as I have moderate ME and mostly housebound. I have an energy impairment which means I have to film in very short 20-30 second bursts and it takes a long time to recover before I can film again. I can’t rehearse or do more than 1 take. So I use autocue to help me remember my lines and a lot of editing magic. This is the first time I have been able to dance in many years, so I’m a bit rusty.
M.E. Stands for Myalgic Encephalomyelitis. A neurological disease that is most often triggered by a viral infection that affects the neurological, immune, cardiovascular, gastric, endocrine & metabolic systems, making it a debilitating, multi-system disease. The core symptom is an energy impairment called post Exertional mailai (PEM) There is currently no cure & research is grossly underfunded.
