Hannah Gadsby returns with new show ‘Douglas’

Hannah Gadsby is ready to head out into the world with a brand new show, it’s called ‘Douglas’.

Gadsby had declared that she was no longer going to do stand-up comedy, her final show Nanette, was a massive success and saw her tour the world, and the Netflix special capturing the show was watched by millions.

Following the success of the show the comedian reconsidered her decision and now she’s written a whole new show. While Nanette was inspired by a random barista, this new show has been inspired by someone close to Hannah – her dog Douglas.

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 before embarking on the US tour, kicking off in San Francisco and then heading around the USA on April 30. There will be more Australian dates to be announced, as well as dates in the US, Europe, Canada and New Zealand.
