Pull those strings, Ellen DeGeneres!
The queen of daytime TV has changed the lives of many over the years, giving away millions of dollars to schools and families in need — not to mention helping out viral stars before they drift off into internet obscurity.
But the 58-year-old has outdone herself this time — because she just surprised a terminally ill comedian with his very own HBO special!
Quincy Jones, who was diagnosed with cancer last summer, stopped by Monday’s show and confirmed that it was his lifelong dream to host his own stand-up special.
Little did the comedian know, Ellen made his dreams become a reality when she surprised him with excellent news, saying:
“So what you don’t know, we called the head of HBO. And your people didn’t even tell you this, but HBO is going to air your special.”
Ch-ch-check out the clip (below) to see Jones’ reaction and receive another gift from Ellen to help him film the special!
