Ellen DeGeneres appeared to leave a gal pal crying with laughter as they enjoyed a lighthearted chat in Los Angeles on Wednesday.

The 66-year-old comedian is preparing for her comeback tour Ellen’s Last Stand… Up, which begins next month in Spokane, Washington.

She last toured in 2018 – four years before her daytime talk show ended amid a blizzard of allegations about its ‘toxic’ work environment.

But the drama of the past seemed well behind Ellen as she cheerfully chuckled along with her female friend during a sunny outing.

Concealing her signature cropped blonde hair under a baseball cap, the superstar comic cut a casual figure in a cozy black sweater and grey sweats.

Her latest sighting comes two days after she and her wife Portia De Rossi were spotted headed to one of Ellen’s gigs in Los Angeles.

The former talk show host — who recently discussed becoming reclusive — and her spouse, 51, coordinated in casual looks.

She was said to have earned ‘roaring applause’ at an April stand-up show at Club Largo, in which she joked about her fall from grace after she was plagued with a toxic workplace scandal that tarnished her reputation as TV’s favorite host.

She recalled getting ‘kicked out of show business’ for being ‘mean,’ per Rolling Stone.

DeGeneres continued: ‘The hate went on for a long time and I would try to avoid looking at the news. The “be kind” girl wasn’t kind. That was the headline.’ 

‘There’s no mean people in show business… I became this one-dimensional character who gave stuff away and danced up steps,’ she continued.

‘Do you know how hard it is to dance up steps? Would a mean person dance up steps? Had I ended my show by saying, “Go f*** yourself,” people would’ve been pleasantly surprised,’ the star cracked.

She admitted that she ‘didn’t know how to be a boss’ despite being the face of her show, before reminding fans that she ‘went to Charlie’s Chuckle Hut,’ not business school.

‘The show was called Ellen and everybody was wearing T-shirts that said “Ellen” and there were buildings on the Warner Brothers lot that said Ellen, but I don’t know that that meant I should be in charge,’ she reflected.

Ellen promoted her imminent tour in her latest Instagram post, shared on Tuesday with her 139 million followers.

She shared a video clip while once again preparing to perform at Club Largo on Monday evening.

In the recording she said to the camera, ‘I’m about to go on stage here at Largo. Very excited. I have a few more shows here before I go out on the road and do some big theatres. So this is a fun, intimate place to see me if you can.’ 

In the caption she wrote, ‘Backstage at Largo from last night’s show. Two dates just added- June 12 and 13. They’re my last two shows in LA before I hit the road! Tickets are in the link in my bio.’
