Ellen's First Stand-Up Special in 15-Years Headed to Netflix!


Ellen DeGeneres has been doing "The  Ellen Degeneres" show for 14 years. She hasn't taken the stage for a stand up routine in about 15 years (her last was 2003's "Ellen  DeGeneres: Here and Now," which aired on HBO). But a new deal between the comedienne and Netflix is about to change all of that.

Announced via a pair of hilarious tweets, DeGeneres and Netflix  promoted the upcoming special. "Looks like it's been 15 years since you  did a stand-up special," the streaming service tweeted Ellen, "how about  one for Netflix?" Degeneres quickly tweeted back, "Let me think about  it. Ok I'm in."

No air date yet, but those details should be coming soon, and considering that Chris Rock, Dave Chappelle and Jerry Seinfeld all locked in deals for about $40-million apiece, it's pretty likely she's in the same neighborhood.
