Netflix release trailer for Ellen DeGeneres' stand-up comedy special


DeGeneres explains the genesis of the title as the trailer begins.

The new special marks DeGeneres' long-awaited return to standup in her first comedy special in 15 years, which finds her putting her unique comic spin on topics ranging from Los Angeles traffic to losing her sitcom when she came out all those years ago. DeGeneres then deadpanned to the audience, "Just then, Batu, my butler, stepped into the library..." "And it took three years for me to get back on television. Like, if somebody cuts me off in a risky way, if I honk, they're like, 'Ellen?!'".

"You're walking down the aisle to your seat, which is 10B or whatever it is [and] it's like Noah's Ark".

In the two-minute Netflix trailer, DeGeneres talks about how her sitcom was cancelled when she came out as a lesbian in 1996. She then slyly adds, "I say 10B - does a plane go back that far?" I should never have a horn in my vehicle.

DeGeneres got her start in stand-up in the Eighties, first working clubs in her hometown of New Orleans before hitting the road as a touring comedian.
