Ellen DeGeneres pays tribute to late father Elliott who died aged 92

Ellen DeGeneres' 92-Year-Old Father Passed Away — Followed By An Amazing Sign Of Hope!

Notaro is also a frequent guest on Ellen, and she said DeGeneres had one request for her Tonight Show appearance.

The 59-year-old shared a video clip of the segment on her Twitter account, that quickly amassed over 700k views in less than 12 hours. "He was Christian Science his entire life, he never had medicine his whole life, never went to a doctor". We never had a vaccination. "And he lived to be 92".

Our hearts are with Ellen and her family. Neither her mother nor DeGeneres are now Christian Scientists.

Ellen DeGeneres is a proud daughter as she mentions the fine qualities of her father. "He loved this show". He was a kind man, very accepting man. "He was very amusing". There was not one bone of judgement in his body.

"Here's the thing. I talked to Ellen DeGeneres last night ... and she asked if I was in NY and I saw I was doing The Tonight Show, and she said she wasn't comfortable with me doing other talk shows", Notaro joked in her hilarious, deadpan style.

She noted that her father "loved" that she was in entertainment, and she spoke to him just before his death.

She describes him as being a kind man who was always proud of her - and also, interestingly, having survived almost a century without ever going to the doctor.

All of our sympathies go out to Ellen and her family.
