Her early appearances were on British TV sketch comedy shows A Kick Up the Eighties (with Rik Mayall and Miriam Margolyes) and Three of a Kind (with Lenny Henry and David Copperfield). After a brief but high-profile 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. She later produced programmes for HBO, including Tracey Takes On... (1996–99), for which she garnered numerous awards. Ullman's sketch comedy series, Tracey Ullman's State of the Union, ran from 2008 to 2010 on Showtime. She has also appeared in several feature films. She is currently working on a new comedy series for the BBC.
Ullman is currently the richest female British comedian; the third richest British comedian overall. She is also the second richest British actress (surpassed by Isla Fisher's marriage to comedian Sacha Baron Cohen as of 2015).
Ullman married producer Allan McKeown on 27 December 1983. They have two children; Mabel, born in 1986 and Johnny, born in 1991. Mabel works for the Labour Party; Johnny is an actor and musician. On 24 December 2013, McKeown died at his home from prostate cancer, just three days before the couple's 30th wedding anniversary. Ullman's mother died in a fire that took place at her retirement flat on 23 March 2015. An inquest ruled the death to be accidental. She was eighty-five years old.
Ullman became an American citizen in December 2006 and now holds dual citizenship in the United States and the United Kingdom. The results of the 2004 United States presidential election, and a comment made by actor Tom Hanks, prompted her desire to naturalise. “Tom Hanks was standing in a corridor at a party and I said something, and he was just very nice and he went, ‘Oh, yeah. I know that but you’re British. You know, you don’t have to put up with that stuff ... I went, ‘No. Actually I’ve been here a long time.‘ I thought, that’s it. I’m going to join in. So I took the [citizenship] test.” In 2006, she topped the list for the "Wealthiest British Comedians," with an estimated wealth of £75 million. In 2015, Ullman's wealth was estimated to be £77 million, making her the wealthiest female British comedian, and the second richest British actress.
In the past, she has described herself a British republican. "Even as a kid, I never got why we pay people millions of pounds to be better than us." On a particular incident: "An M.P. once suggested I be put in the Tower of London for saying derogatory things about the royals."
An avid knitter, she co-authored a book on the subject, Knit 2 Together: Patterns and Stories for Serious Knitting Fun in 2006.
