Did Ellen DeGeneres Just Agree to Do a Stand-Up Comedy Special?

May 24, 2017

Sometimes if you ask nicely on Twitter, you can get what you want. Apparently, that's even true for Netflix.


The streaming services sent a tweet to Ellen DeGeneres on Wednesday reminding her that it had been a while since she had done a comedy special. In fact, Netflix invited the 59-year-old daytime TV talk show host to do the comedy special on their streaming service.

In less than 15 minutes, Ellen had responded to their tweet within a few minutes to say "I'm in."

So, of course, we're assuming that this is a publicity stunt to announce that Ellen's standup special is coming to Netflix. Ellen's last comedy special, which was titled Ellen DeGeneres: Here and Now, aired on HBO in 2003
