Netflix has released the trailer for Ellen DeGeneres’ stand-up comedy special “Relatable,” the comedian’s first stand-up special in 15 years. Her last comedy special “Ellen DeGeneres: Here and Now” aired in 2003 on HBO.
In the trailer, DeGeneres reflects on how she settled on the title of the show.
“A friend of mine was at my house and I told him I’m going to do stand-up again and he said, ‘Really?’, and I said ‘Yeah’, I was hoping for more of a Really!’, and he said, ‘Well, do you think you’re still relatable?’ Just then, my butler Bitou stepped into the library,” DeGeneres says.
In another clip, DeGeneres pokes fun at service animals on a plane.
“You’re walking down the aisle to your street, which is 10B or whatever, and it’s like Noah’s ark – there’s a woman with a ferret, there’s a man with a mongoose, there’s a lady with a donkey,” DeGeneres says before adding “I say 10B – does a plane go back that far? I’ve never been back there.”
Stream “Relatable” on Netflix starting Dec. 18.
