The Ellen DeGeneres Show is loads of fun.  America grew to love her grand entrance onto the stage of her talk show with her cool and charming dance moves to an infectious song. 

In June of 2013 and 2014, her fun-loving energy, along with her charisma, landed her the Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Talk Show Host.

Recently, I had the opportunity to be a guest in Ellen’s Riff Raff Room.  The entire experience was quite pleasing and it permitted me a close and personal look into how her show is run.   

The show is magnificently produced, by the way.

My Ellen journey began as I entered the parking structure of the Warner Brothers Studio in Burbank, California.  Upon entering, I glanced to my left and noticed the vivacity of a group of excited, well-dressed audience members.  Everyone seemed to eagerly anticipate the check- in. 

There were flat screens on the wall that gave us the opportunity to view Ellen’s show as she was recording.  I approached the first desk where they obtained my driver’s license, checked me in, then motioned me towards the second desk. 

This time, I was provided with a huge blue card that read the number 342, after which I received a stamp on my right hand that was visible only when light flashed directly on it.

Finally, I was told to have a seat and wait until my number was called.  Everyone around me sat in heightened anticipation, looking forward to becoming an audience member on the Ellen DeGeneres Show.

Your first time on the show does not guarantee that you will be a part of the actual studio audience.  No, you must first become one of Ellen’s Riff Raff where you will view the show in Ellen’s Riff Raff room. 

I know the term Riff Raff is not becoming, however, it makes sense.  The Riff Raff room allows Ellen’s production crew to properly screen the audience behavior, which will determine if they will be invited back to become an actual studio audience member. Membership presents the opportunity to dance and laugh with Ellen up close and personal. 

Despite the name, the Riff Raff room was full of energy and excitement intertwined with positive expectation.  The whole encounter was a big party.

Ellen’s Riff Raff crew observed the audience the entire time, speaking as unsuspiciously as they could into their microphones. These crew members were undoubtedly providing feed back to the rest of the production crew.  Were they assessing the Riff Raff audience’s bent for compliance? Checking to see how they would react once they were on camera? Likely, yes. 

One of Ellen’s guests was One Direction, an English-Irish pop boy band based in London.  The young girls around me were screaming, crying, yelling and dancing as they zealously observed their favorite musical group on camera.   

Ellen has a smile that lights up her entire studio.  She even graced the Riff Raff room with her presence, smiling and waving as she brought One Direction to say hello to screaming fans. 

Now, let’s reflect back to earlier when I indicated Ellen’s Riff Raff crew are always on the look-out to prohibit actual riff raff from obtaining access to the studio showroom.  The Riff Raff room is a screening room that, after you pass the screening process, presents the opportunity to become an actual audience member.

During my Riff Raff experience, the Riff Raff crew informed production of the high energy and excitement coming from fans.  The high energy was brought to Ellen’s attention which prompted her to come back and greet the Riff Raff room. 

Ellen always gives back to her fans, which is why I believe she is a huge success.  Ellen didn’t do a single re-take; she allowed the show to naturally flow, stopping only for commercial breaks. 

During my entire involvement, people were dancing and smiling; it was absolutely pure, positive, high momentum.  I enjoyed being a part of Ellen’s Riff Raff and was successful in obtaining an invite back.  My next tour of the Ellen Show will grant me the opportunity to be a part of her studio audience. 

My Ellen experience was instructive and taught me a lot about the production of a talk show since I, myself, will one day host my own talk show.  I was able to see the screening process and how the show is run. 

Ellen is amazing.  She has great energy and understands how to flow with life’s frequency.  She frequently gazes into the studio audience as she flashes her bright, contagious smile.  Everyone should provide themselves the opportunity to experience Ellen’s Riff Raff Room and, if you are the right mix of positive energy and excitement, you may be invited back to become a part of the show. 

Watch below as Ellen and One Direction Grace the Riff Raff Room.
