Lauren Carroll Harris Guardian With this slickly produced 70-minute standup special, Netflix continues its glittering and sometimes subversive lineup of smart, kooky comedy. Jul 24, 2019 Full Review Carrie Battan New Yorker In Relatable, Ellen DeGeneres struggles to regain the edge that she has lost in that intervening time...In defending Hart without any sort of thoughtful inquiry, DeGeneres abdicated her responsibility to her audience. Jan 8, 2019 Full Review Robyn Bahr Hollywood Reporter I just wish she gave us more of her own visceral humanness and trusted us to receive her with a little more darkness than her brand typically allows for. Dec 26, 2018 Full Review Yusef Roach Paste Magazine This special is damn delightful. Rated: 7.8/10 Dec 20, 2018 Full Review Sean L. McCarthy Decider All relatable stuff. If not out-and-out gut-busting or thought-provoking. Does comedy necessarily have to be either of those, though? Can't funny just be funny? Dec 20, 2018 Full Review Laura Bradley Vanity Fair However un-relatable DeGeneres might claim to be, her special feels like a joyous invitation; perhaps the next one won't take 15 years to arrive.

Nietzsche l Tired, pretentious and forced. It was like watching someone struggling with some internal dilemma. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 07/11/24 Full Review Rohit C Ellen tried too hard, did not feel free flowing at all, the last line was spoken as if turning screws. Not at all relatable.. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 10/18/19 Full Review Eda Buse A Ellen was never a great comedian anyways. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 09/10/19 Full Review Johann M Ellen Degeneres is truly a jewel in our world. Such talent and pride of who she is makes her so relatable in so many ways that I wish we had her in our lives forever. She always makes me laugh with her jokes and incredible anecdotes. May she be with us for years and years. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 04/11/19 Full Review Jay A I managed to watch about 15 mins. We get it, you are rich and gay. Please wait another 15 years before another special Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 03/29/19 Full Review Audience Member very bland. should stick to daytime talk. rather watch a different show.
