There’s not an intro clever enough to do this news justice, so I’m just going to come out and say it. Ellen Degeneres is releasing a new stand up special!!!

It has been 15 years since the comedian turned talk show host has hit the stage. I know I’m not alone in feeling that it’s been way too long! The last time we saw Degeneres performing stand up was back in 2003 with her HBO special Here And Now. Since then, she has become a household name while gathering up 30 daytime Emmy awards for her talk show, The Ellen Degeneres Show.

The new stand up special was filmed over the summer and is entitled Relatable. You can catch the special streaming on Netflix on December 18th. Check out the clip below to see how Ellen broke the news to her studio audience.

Oh Ellen I am already counting the days until this special drops. I am sure we will all need a good laugh come the middle of the holiday season!
