Comedian-turned-talk show host Ellen De Generes is set to return to stand-up comedy for the first time in 15 years in an upcoming special for Netflix and we now know the title and premiere date.

Called 'Relatable', it will arrive on the streaming service just in time for Christmas on the 18th of December.

'Relatable' was filmed at Seattle's Benaroya Hall and was part of DeGeneres' eight-performance, three-city tour marking her return to stand-up.

Ellen and Netflix announced the news of the special last year via tweets, with the streaming giant tweeting a request that DeGeneres return to stand-up on their platform, and the Ellen host retweeted and commented with: "Let me think about it. OK I'm in."

Ellen announced the title and air date in a video which sees her calling up the likes of Bono, Reese Witherspoon and Barack Obama.
