Ellen DeGeneres has made her return to standup after 15 years! The last time Degeneres took the stage was back in 2003 when she filmed the HBO special “Here and Now” filmed at the Beacon Theatre in New York City.
Today, on the season premiere of her talk show, DeGeneres said, “I just all of a sudden was like, I miss stand-up, I want to do it. So I made a deal with Netflix, and I was working on stand-up all summer.” She went on an 8 show tour last month, and filmed her new standup special titled “Relatable” in Seattle at Benaroya Hall.
Ellen announce today, the special will be released for streaming December 18th on Netflix.
