Celebrity of the Day


Tracey Ullman

The 2018 Tribeca TV Festival (Sept. 20-23) being held at NYC's Spring Studios will include the Season 3 International Premiere of “Tracey Ullman’s Show” (HBO) tonight Sept. 21 at 5:45 PM, followed by a conversation with star and executive producer Tracey Ullman interviewed by Meryl Streep.

Featuring the unique comic talent in multiple roles, Ullman’s first HBO series, “Tracey Takes On…,” ran for four seasons, wrapping its 47-episode run in 1999, and received six Emmys®. Her other HBO credits include the specials “Tracey Ullman: Live and Exposed” (2005), “Tracey Ullman in the Trailer Tales” (2003), “Tracey Ullman: Takes on New York” (1993) and “Tracey Ullman: A Class Act” (1993).

Born (December 30) in Slough, Berkshire, England, Ullman burst on the U.S. TV scene in 1987 with the broadcast series “The Tracey Ullman Show,” which brought her two Emmys®, and also gave birth to “The Simpsons.” She also won Emmys® for guest appearances on “Ally McBeal” and “Love & War.” Her recent TV credits also include STARZ’s “Howards End” and HBO’s “Girls.”

Ullman’s film credits include “Into the Woods,” Tim Burton’s “Corpse Bride,” John Waters’ “A Dirty Shame,” Woody Allen’s “Small Time Crooks” and “Bullets Over Broadway,” “Panic,” Robert Altman’s “Ready to Wear,” Mel Brooks’ “Robin Hood: Men in Tights,” “I Love You to Death,” “I’ll Do Anything,” “Household Saints” and “Plenty.”

The longtime HBO favorite returns with six new episodes of her Emmy®-nominated series when “Tracey Ullman’s Show” kicks off its third season Friday, Sept. 28 (midnight-12:30 AM ET/PT), exclusively on HBO, HBO NOW, HBO GO, HBO On Demand and partners’ streaming platforms. Emmy® winner Ullman stars as a wide array of famous faces and everyday people in the sketch comedy show, which looks at modern life and current social figures through a comedic lens. Over the course of the new season, Ullman uses her signature brand of sharp satire to shape-shift into a range of public figures and offbeat original characters. She reprises her characterizations of Dame Judi Dench, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall and Jerry Hall, and introduces her takes on British Prime Minister Theresa May, French First Lady Brigitte Macron and U.S. First Lady Melania Trump, among others. More topical than ever before, “Tracey Ullman’s Show” satirizes today’s culture, including television’s latest obsession with strong but messy female characters, the future possibilities for smart-home devices, life in a post-Brexit world and the absurdity of the 24-hour news cycle.
