Ellen DeGeneres has a special treat in store for her legions of fans: a first look at her upcoming Netflix standup comedy special, “Ellen DeGeneres: Relatable”.
The new special marks DeGeneres’ long-awaited return to standup in her first comedy special in 15 years, which finds her putting her unique comic spin on topics ranging from Los Angeles traffic to losing her sitcom when she came out all those years ago.
Filmed at Seattle’s Benaroya Hall, DeGeneres is in rare form, especially when she discusses why it took three years to return to TV after the cancellation of her sitcom.
“There was this one station manager that said, ‘No one’s going to watch a lesbian during the day,'” she quips in the trailer. “And I said, ‘Well, they weren’t watching me at night. What time of day is good for a lesbian?'”
“Relatable” debuts on Friday, Dec. 16.
