Degeneres on the road

Before her sitcom, and before all the coming-out/dating Anne Heche hoopla, Ellen DeGeneres was a stand-up comedian. Now she's back on the road, on a tour that hits Washington's Lisner Auditorium April 16 and 17, and which culminates in shows in New York that will be filmed for an HBO special.

It's been a busy year for DeGeneres: Her talk show makes its debut in September, she has a book due in the fall, and she recently lent her voice to the Disney-Pixar animated film Finding Nemo, due in May.

To catch the stand-up star as she perfects the material for her TV special, call Ticketmaster at 410-492-SEAT, or check out For more information, see www
