It hurts to give Ellen only 2 stars. The difference between performing stand-up and reading it is in the audience. And Ellen, who we know is brilliant and funny, just sounds a litle "is this thing on?" without an audience response. Much of this material is in her comedy act and plays better that way ("back to the happy place" and "that reminds me of Gloria Estefan."). It may also read well, but as an audio book, it tries too hard.
