Her father passed away when she was only six years old. After that loss she moved around a lot with her mother, who changed several jobs to support Ullman and her sister. Tracey started performing while still a child; at the age of twelve, Tracey won a scholarship to a performing arts school but four years later decided to leave school in order to pursue a dancing career in Berlin. Later, when she returned to England, she had minor success in musicals in London’s West End. In 1981 she went on to British TV projects such as the comedy skit show “Three of a Kind”. While still experimenting in multiple fields of her career, Tracey released a rock-influenced album “You Broke My Heart in 17 Places” in 1983, which achieved some success in England, most notably the song “They Don’t Know” which became a crossover hit in the US a year later.
After auditioning in the US, Ullman appeared in the 1985 drama “Plenty”, alongside Meryl Streep, and worked with producer James L.Brooks on starting her own comedy series “The Tracey Ullman Show”. The program debuted in 1987, and featured Ullman in a broad range of characters, including short animated parts by Matt Groening which were the beginnings of “The Simpsons”. After premiering, “The Tracey Ullman Show” gathered more and more popularity, eventually earning several Emmy Awards, including for outstanding variety music or comedy series in 1989. Her net worth was well established.
After the show ended in 1990, Tracey focused on films, and some of her notable roles include those in “Robin Hood: Men in Tights”(1993), “Household Saints”(1993) and “Bullets Over Broadway”(1994). Ullman eventually decided to return to television, and earned numerous acknowledgements for her 1993 HBO special “Tracey Takes On New York”, which then inspired her next show “Tracey Takes On”, debuting in 1996. Another one of her popular shows was the 2008 “State of the Union”, which was inspired by Ullman becoming a naturalized US citizen. Some of her more recent activities include a part in the 2014 film adaptation of “Into the Woods” musical, and the debut of BBC’s “The Tracey Ullman Show” in 2016.
Privately, Ullman married producer Allan McKeown in 1983, with whom she has two children. Unfortunately, in 2013 Tracey’s husband died of prostate cancer.
