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 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.
