Looks like it's been 15 years since you did a stand-up special, @TheEllenShow. How about one for Netflix?— Netflix US (@netflix) May 24, 2017
Let me think about it. Ok I'm in. https://t.co/kUAdHyXAjS— Ellen DeGeneres (@TheEllenShow) May 24, 2017
DeGeneres revealed further details of the comedy special on her daytime show, Ellen: The Ellen DeGeneres Show.
“Earlier this week I got a tweet from the people at Netflix and I have good news and bad news,” she said. “The bad news is they wouldn’t tell me what happened to Barb on Stranger Things, but the good news is they asked if I was interested in doing a stand-up special.”
Good news, indeed. We'll totes Netflix and chill with you, Ellen.
