DeGeneres made the announcement during the Season 16 premiere of her daytime talk show. The comedy special, her first in 15 years, will be titled "Relatable."

"I mentioned that I worked a lot over the summer," the comedian said.

"What I did was I went back to stand-up. I didn't do stand-up for 15 years and I decided... I just all of a sudden was like I miss stand-up, I want to do it."

"So I made a deal with Netflix. And I was working on stand-up all summer. I taped it in Seattle. This is the Benaroya Hall, where I was. It was so much fun. I loved it so much."

DeGeneres gave members of her live studio audience 65-inch TCL Roku televisions so they can view the comedy special.

Netflix also released a video on Twitter of DeGeneres seemingly talking to a number of her celebrity friends on the phone about the premiere date, including U2's Bono, Reese Witherspoon, former President Barack Obama and Oprah Winfrey.
