Ellen DeGeneres Confirms Stand-Up Special On Netflix: ‘Okay I’m In’

One single tweet can change everything. After a 15-year break from stand-up, it appears comedian Ellen DeGeneres is making a triumphant return with a stand-up comedy special on Netflix.

The online streaming giant tweeted a proposal to DeGeneres on Wednesday saying, “Looks like it’s been 15 years since you did a stand-up special, @TheEllenShow. How about one for Netflix?”

The last time the 59-year-old talk show host took the stage was for HBO and she received multiple Emmy nods, for her 2001 special “Ellen DeGeneres: The Beginning” and in 2003 for “Ellen DeGeneres: Here and Now”.

No word on any details about the stand-up special, but the deal is likely to mirror the hits Netflix recently signed with other comedy stars like Chris Rock, Dave Chappelle and Jerry Seinfeld.
