Can you believe it's been 15 years since we've seen Ellen DeGeneres do stand up? Neither could Netflix, so on Wednesday they tweeted the talk show queen with a proposal..
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
Netflix has really been claiming territory over the stand-up scene by sealing the deal on many A-list specials including Amy Schumer, Dave Chappelle, Louis C.K., Tracy Morgan and Chris Rock.
After their tweet it took about 13 minutes for DeGeneres to join that roster, by simply tweeting, "Ok I'm in.".
Let me think about it. Ok I'm in. https://t.co/kUAdHyXAjS— Ellen DeGeneres (@TheEllenShow) May 24, 2017
Ellen later released a statement provided through Netflix-
“It has been 15 years since I did a stand-up special. 15 years, and I’m writing it now, I can’t wait. I’ll keep you posted when and where I’m gonna shoot my Netflix special. I’m excited to do it; I’m excited for you to see it.” - Ellen DeGeneres
