Ellen Returns To Stand-Up With New Netflix Special

Netflix has booked Ellen DeGeneres for a stand-up special. 

The show will mark Ellen’s return to the stage for the first time in 15 years. 

The last time Ellen performed stand-up was in a series of Emmy-nominated HBO specials that came out in 2001 and 2003. 

Netflix has been ramping up the number of comedy specials it releases. 

In 2017 alone, the service scheduled over 20 specials, including some by Dave Chappelle and Amy Schumer, among others.
