Netflix has announced the release date and title for Ellen DeGeneres’ first stand-up comedy special in 15 years.
The special, titled “Relatable,” debuts on the streaming service on December 18.
DeGeneres signed a deal with Netflix in May 2017 to produce the special. Deadline reported that her contract was in the range of $US20 million, around the same figure that the company reportedly paid to Jerry Seinfeld and Chris Rock to get them to return to stand-up after extended hiatuses.
HBO released DeGeneres’ last special, “Ellen DeGeneres: Here and Now,” in 2003.
“Relatable” was filmed at the Benaroya Hall in Seattle, Washington, in one of the final stops of a three-city tour DeGeneres went on last month.
Netflix announced the release of “Relatable” on Tuesday in a tweet that featured a video of DeGeneres fielding fake phone calls from Bono, Reese Witherspoon, and Barack Obama to tell them about her release date.
