Hannah Gadsby to tour a brand new live show ‘Douglas’

Who is Douglas? Well, apparently, Gadsby thinks he is the only one who can help her follow up on the trail blazed by her last show: Nanette.

Hannah Gadsby’s tenth solo show was Nanette. It did alright.

Nanette played around Australia and the UK for 18 months – taking out the top prizes at the Melbourne and Edinburgh festivals before sitting down in New York and dropping a Netflix special last June that started a global conversation that continues six months later.

While Nanette was a random barista, Douglas is a very specific dog, and the only thing they have in common is they’ve inspired Hannah to put pen to paper and turn out a show you couldn’t possibly expect. Hannah found her voice with Nanette and with Douglas she plans to use it. The stand-up stage has been Hannah’s home for more than a decade, and the last couple of years have given her a few very new ideas to think and talk about in her first ever US tour.

Douglas will premiere in Melbourne from 27 March – 7 April before embarking on the US tour, kicking off in San Francisco on 30 April and then heading around the nation.

There will be more US dates to be announced, including New York, as well as dates in Europe, Australia, Canada and New Zealand. Head to her website for full details and to sign-up for the pre-sale and further information.
