Ellen DeGeneres’ Final Comedy Special to Appear on Netflix

A Comedian’s Swan Song

After beginning her stand-up comedy career in the late ‘70s, Ellen DeGeneres will be releasing her final comedy special later this year through Netflix.

Netflix Special

Ellen’s second special through Netflix will apparently be her last comedy special ever. Her first Netflix special, Relatable, was released in 2018 and reportedly earned DeGeneres $20 million. Although the title, earnings, and other details have yet to be released, Ellen apparently won’t be shying away from discussing the contentious end to The Ellen DeGeneres Show

The special seems to be an effort that will be in conjunction with Ellen’s upcoming comedy tour. The tour will begin on June 19 in San Diego. Tickets are now available for this show, starting at $18 each. Ellen will join a long list of comedians that have or will release a special with Netflix in 2024. Mike Epps, Dave Chappelle, Taylor Tomlinson, Jimmy Carr, Katt Williams, and Demetri Martin have already contributed to the list of over 20 new specials that Netflix has released this year.   

Ellen’s Career

Ellen is no stranger to success. After breaking onto the comedy scene, she quickly began to tour nationally throughout the ‘80s. During this time she was named “Funniest Person in America” by Showtime. This early notoriety was enough to grant her roles in movies and television, as well as the lead in the 1994 hit sitcom, Ellen

Her work during this period would ultimately set the table for what would become a huge turning point for her career. 2003 saw Ellen assume the role of Dory, a beloved character in Pixar’s Finding Nemo. The role became so popular that it earned a spinoff movie, Finding Dory. 2003 also saw the creation of Ellen’s talk show, The Ellen DeGeneres Show, which spanned over 2,500 episodes across 19 seasons. Ellen’s success in these avenues likely contributed to her 15-year break from Stand-up comedy. The hiatus was broken with DeGeneres’ first Netflix special in 2018.    

Ellen’s 2018 special, Relatable, is now available for streaming on Netflix.
