Summary : Fresh Air Archive, Ellen Degeneres and Andy Richter (Nonfiction)

Actress, writer, comedians Ellen Degeneres and Andy Richter on this edition of Fresh Air. Ellen Degeneres will soon begin a comedy tour. Her five-year sit-com Ellen won an Emmy for her much anticipated coming-out episode. She and her character came out at the same time. This was followed by a very public relationship with actress Anne Heche, which eventually ended. Degeneres talks about coming out, her relationship with Heche, and why she resists becoming a lesbian role model. Degeneres is the author of the book, My Point...And I Do Have One. For seven years he was Conan O'Brien's sidekick on Late Night. Now, Andy Richter has his own sitcom on FOX, Andy Richter Controls the Universe. Richter could be seen in the movies, Scarey Movie 2, Dr. T & The Women, and in the upcoming films Big Trouble, and Run, Ronnie, Run. (Broadcast Date: April 15, 2002)
