Hannah Gadsby: Douglas

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 Gadsby: Douglas

About Hannah Gadsby: Douglas

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 in June 2018 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.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Hannah Gadsby: Douglas are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
