Hannah Gadsby – Douglas

We only link to official ticket sellers for Hannah Gadsby

Winner – Best Comedy Performer, Helpmann Awards 2019

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 eighteen months, taking out the top prizes at the Melbourne and Edinburgh festivals before sitting down in New York in Spring 2018 and dropping a Netflix special that summer that won her a Peabody Award and started a global conversation that continues today.

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 brand new show.

“Makes me laugh in ways that hurt.”★★★★★  Time Out, 2019

“Gadsby maintains a masterful control of her craft.”★★★★½  The Age, 2019

Douglas, her follow-up to a show that would seem impossible to top, is another triumph.”★★★★½ Chortle, 2019
