Overview

Who is Douglas? Well, apparently, Hannah Gadsby thinks he is the only one who can help her follow up on the trail blazed by her last show: Nanette. Hannah is all set to take the mysterious Douglas for a trot around America for her first ever US tour. 

Tasmania’s own Hannah Gadsby has come to the world’s attention through her multi-award winning stand up show Nanette, which played to sold out houses across Australia, London, Edinburgh, New York and Los Angeles before launching on Netflix in June as the first Australian Netflix Original Comedy Special, and stopping the comedy world in its tracks.

What they have said about Nanette;

“As uproariously funny as it is profoundly furious.”
– The New Yorker

“The laughs of her show are a means to an end, which is, at its core, a ferocious attack on comedy itself.”
– The New York Times

“Nanette is the kind of work that leaves you shaken. Not because it’s really funny (it really is), or because it’s equally heartbreaking, but because it finds a fusion of those two modes that’s incandescent.”
– The Atlantic
