Trace "Tracey" Ullman is a British-American actress, singer, screenwriter, director and businesswoman. Her earliest appearances were on British television sketch comedy shows A Kick Up the Eighties and Three of a Kind. After a brief singing career, she appeared as Candice Valentine in Girls on Top with Dawn French and Jennifer Saunders, she emigrated from the United Kingdom to the United States where she starred in her own network television comedy series, The Tracey Ullman Show, from 1987 until 1990, which featured the first appearances of the long-running animated media franchise, The Simpsons. She produced programmes for HBO, including Tracey Takes On... for which she garnered numerous awards. Her sketch comedy series, Tracey Ullman's State of the Union, ran from 2008 to 2010 on Showtime, she has appeared in several feature films. Ullman was the first British woman to be offered her own television sketch show in both the United Kingdom and the United States. In 2016, she returned to British television with the BBC sketch comedy show Tracey Ullman's Show, her first project for the broadcaster in over thirty years.

Ullman is the richest British actress and female comedian and the third richest British comedian overall. Tracey Ullman was born Trace Ullman in Slough, the younger of two daughters, to Dorin and Antony John Ullman, her mother was British, with Roma ancestry, her father was a Roman Catholic Pole. On the subject of the spelling of her name: "My real name is Trace Ullman, but I added the'y.' My mother said it was spelled the American way, but I don't think she can spell! I always wanted a middle name. My mum used to tell me it was Mary but I never believed her. I looked on my birth certificate and I didn't have one, just Trace Ullman."Antony Ullman served in the Polish Army and was evacuated from Dunkirk in 1940. He subsequently worked as a solicitor, a furniture salesman, a travel agent, he brokered marriages and translated among the émigré Polish community. Dorin and Antony encouraged her to perform. In an interview with Fresh Air host Terry Gross, Ullman revealed that when she was six, her father, recovering from a heart operation, died of a heart attack in front of her while the two were alone and as he was reading to her.

He was fifty years old. "When that happens to you as a child, you can face anything. You're always waiting for the other shoe to drop. If something great happens, you're like,'Wow, that's great that happened, because it could have been crap'; the most disappointing thing happened when you were younger You're just braver and if good things happen you're grateful."Ullman, living an upper-middle class life, was uprooted to Hackbridge, southwest London, along with her older sister Patti and her mother, who could now make ends meet without their father's income. "After died, our fortunes came and went because Mum couldn't speak Polish and had to give up the business. When I meet other girls who lost their fathers when they were young, I relate to them. You become independent quickly. Mother Dorin would go on to take a host of odd jobs. "My mother was always doing strange things like driving parts around for a garage, all covered in oil and paid 10 pounds a week. But she was funny, our defence against hardship was having a great sense of humour."

On a separate occasion, on the subject of her mother's jobs, Ullman recalled: " worked in a laboratory, testing food, would bring home samples for our dinner. Sometimes she'd have to report that formula X had been found unfit for human consumption." One of her mother's jobs enabled her to indulge in her penchant for observing people. "My mum used to work in a mental institution in London when I was a kid, I used to go there on Sundays, I used to love studying the people there." Contrary to the truth, her mother maintained that their family was still middle-class in the absence of their father. "My mother always insisted on middle-class. We're lower-middle."Ullman credits her sense of humour to a feeling of both classlessness as well as her mother's working-class roots. "It comes from being classless, I think. My father was Polish and he died when I was six, and from being a little girl who went to gymkhana and had ponies, went to a private school, lived in a big house we didn't have any money any more and had to go to a state school.

And my mother's family is all from South London, we have a lot of uncles and friends over there. And when my father died they were supportive, they used to come down for the weekend - all these hordes of South London oiks, they used to invade our big Posh Bucks home and use the swimming pool, ride the ponies, they were so funny these blokes. But I think the man who affected my sense of humour was my uncle Butch, he was called Butch Castle, he was a decorator from South London - lazy old sod. An he's got the sharpest mind I've known, and I wanted to be like him."In the aftermath of their father's death, their mother slipped into a deep depression and spent a lot of time in bed. In an effort to cheer her up, along with her sister and performed a nightly variety show on the windowsill in their mother's bedroom. “It was the Patti Ullman Show. So I'm a spin-off of my sister's show, as she likes to point out.” I

Eyelash yarn

Eyelash yarn is a type of novelty yarn. It has a thread base, with several long strands spaced at intervals that jut out at an angle from the main strand; the long strands, or hair, can be metallic, matte, or a combination of types. The hair can be two different lengths. Prominent types are composed of 100% polyester with a straight and short hair; because of its thinness, eyelash is carried along with another, plainer yarn to add visual interest to the primary yarn. There are many variations in the texture and composition of eyelash yarns, such as pigtail or ponytail, which have a thicker base and what appear to be flags tied onto the base strand at intervals, or fur, in which the base has a more occurring or thicker grouping of hairlike strands which, in the finished fabric, will be hairy and have the general aspect of faux fur. Drawbacks of eyelash yarns include poor stitch definition, because the hairs obscure the appearance of the base, that they add bulk to a garment; because of this, they are used for accessories, such as scarves, or as garment trim.

Some types of eyelash yarn can be used for decorative purposes. These types combine metal-look lurex with a polyester core which mimics a tinsel effect but is more durable than typical tinsel and be reused for annual celebrations
