Ellen must have gotten tired of watching all those other comedians rake it in with standup specials on Netflix because now she’s jumping on the bandwagon. It’ll be her first standup special in 15 years.
On her show yesterday she said, quote, “I’m writing it now, I can’t wait. I’ll keep you posted when and where I’m gonna shoot [it].
“I’m excited to do it; I’m excited for you to see it. And now, each one of you, you get to Netflix & chill with me. How about that?”
There’s no word how much she’s getting paid, but Netflix has been known to shell out for these things. Dave Chappelle just made $60 million for THREE specials, and Chris Rock signed a $40 million deal to deliver TWO.
Let me think about it. Ok I'm in. https://t.co/kUAdHyXAjS
