Ellen DeGeneres has gone back to her roots; taking a break from her daytime talk show to host a special edition stand-up performance called Relatable.

to watch on Netflix this December 

Filmed for Netflix at Seattle’s Benaroya Hall, Relatable marks Ellen’s return to stand-up comedy after a 15-year hiatus. The now 60-year-old hasn’t done anything like this since 2003 (unless you count her commendable role as Academy Awards host in 2014).

Now, everyone’s favourite TV personality revisits her road to stardom; detailing the heartfelt (and hilarious) lessons she’s learned along the way.

The trailer

Last night, Netflix released the trailer for the comedy special which premieres on December 18. It shows the Louisiana-native joking about everything from her experience of coming out as gay, to her thoughts on emotional support animals.

If you’re a fan of Ellen’s opening monologues on her daytime talk show, this stand-up performance is a must-watch.

Watch the trailer in full below:

Relatable premieres on Netflix on December 18.
