Heading Back to the Ellen Show with 4,000 Ping Pong Balls

Should Ellen DeGeneres be worried that our team is bringing 4,000 ping pong balls to her studio for my appearance on Monday, April 26th? Based on the things that have fizzed, popped, caught on fire or exploded in the past, there’s no need for worry… right? It’s always an honor to be invited back on the show. Whenever Ellen’s producers call, we know that it’s going to be a crazy few weeks of planning and practice before heading out to the Warner Bros. Studios in Burbank, California.

This will be our 9th visit to the Ellen Show, which means we have to keep working on new ideas to share with show’s producers. Here’s quick look at a few of the things we’ve done in the past.


I’ve always wanted to do something with a large number of ping pong balls, but never knew quite what to do. Thanks to a great brainstorming session with @carlyreed and @jefferybrooks, I think we have something that will be fun for Ellen and her audience.
