Ellen DeGeneres Hints At Final Stand Up Special


Ellen DeGeneres is stepping back into the spotlight, but this time it’ll be on her own terms. The comedian announced her final stand-up special, coming to Netflix later this year. This untitled special marks a return to stand-up for DeGeneres and potentially a farewell to a long and storied comedy career.

The news comes amidst heightened interest, particularly following the conclusion of her popular talk show, “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” in 2022. The show’s final season was overshadowed by allegations of a toxic workplace environment, a stark contrast to the show’s reputation for promoting kindness.

DeGeneres hinted at addressing these controversies in a playful social media post. “To answer the questions everyone is asking me,” she wrote, “Yes, I’m going to talk about it. Yes, this is my last special.” Whether she offers a direct apology, sheds light on the situation, or simply uses humor to move forward remains to be seen.

The special will be DeGeneres’ second collaboration with Netflix, following her 2018 special “Relatable.” It will also kick off a multi-city stand-up tour starting in San Diego on June 19th.
