Like In Prison Cell
Original content from DeGeneres also took a beating. Jokes she’d penned on her own went horribly wrong. When she said she felt like she was in prison, even though she was broadcasting from her mansion in California. This experience has taught her one thing: “It’s a lot like being in a prison cell,” she said.
When you had a good cringe, she knew she had a good punchline. “I have being wearing the same outfit for 10 days and everybody here is gay,” he says, making it feel like a prison. There was a noticeable absence of the laugh track. DeGeneres was in the midst of a publicity crisis at the time.
