Live from the Beacon Theatre in New York, after seven years on TV and the big screen, Ellen DeGeneres is back on stage, live, outspoken, outrageous and out.

Ellen on advice received from friends that there's nothing to fear but fear itself: "Hey, great. Now I'm scared of fear. Wasn't before. Thank you very much."

Ellen on her decision to get ride of the need for approval: "I'm on the patch right now - releases small doses of approval until I no longer need it."

Ellen on fashion: "You don't want some outfit that someone can have the exact same thing when you show up at a party. It's happened to me twice - and both times it was William Shatner."

It's Ellen Degeneres, back to stand-up and at her most hilarious. From her secret for how to deal with forgetting people's names to the harsh realities of videotaping your sex life, this is Ellen DeGeneres talking funny and just being...Ellen. It's a night her fans - and anyone who loves comedy - will never forget.
