Hannah Gadsby’s tenth solo show, Nanette, was a global sensation. The show was toured around Australia and the UK for 18 months before being released as a Netflix special last June, cutting through the noise with her raw, insightful, and deeply personal take on stand up.
Gadsby has become an international icon, but the question remained – will she do another show? Part of the narrative of Nanette was her confession that she needs to step back from comedy and the deprecating humour that had previously defined her style.
But the news just landed that Hannah Gadsby is, thankfully, not quitting comedy. She’s returning very soon with a whole new show and world tour.
I have some news… I’m going on a world tour with a brand new show that I’ve called ‘Douglas’. So no… I haven’t quit comedy. Sign up to get the pre-sale and all of the details first: https://t.co/WOLgayBwCT pic.twitter.com/1dg2pnI3WG

The world is currently all ears for what Hannah Gadsby has to say, and she’s taking that opportunity with Douglas.
“Hannah found her voice with Nanette and with Douglas she plans to use it.” Her website describes.
Apparently Gadsby has put together a show that will once again surprise us, and she’s taking it on her first ever tour of the US, after kicking off in Melbourne from March 27 through to April 7.
The American locations date all the way through to July 12 and you can check them out and sign up for pre-sale on her site – this is definitely one of those shows you can trust will be worth it.
