Tracey Ullman started her career on British sketch comedy shows “A Kick Up the Eighties” and “Three of a Kind” before heading to the U.S., where she headlined “The Tracey Ullman Show” in 1987. It wasn’t Ullman’s only foray into American TV, though, as she saw success with subsequent series “Tracey Takes On” in the late 90s, and “Tracey Ullman’s State of the Union,” which aired from 2008 to 2010.
