Ellen DeGenerous: I Simply Cannot Relate
Ellen DeGenerous: I Simply Cannot Relate
In December, Ellen Degeneres dropped "Relatable," a new stand-up special on Netflix. On this night, however, Rachel Kaly (Clickhole, Conan) will drop a different stand-up special that would air in a world where people could freely see the dark side of lesbian mogul Ellen DeGeneres. Rachel Kaly will be joined by Daniel Maseda (La Mama) and other friends.
