Who is Douglas? Well, apparently, Gadsby thinks he is the only one who can help her follow up on the trail blazed by her last show: Nanette.
Hannah Gadsby’s tenth solo show was Nanette. It did alright.
Nanette played around Australia and the UK for eighteen months, taking out the top prizes at the Melbourne and Edinburgh festivals before sitting down in New York in Spring 2018 and dropping a Netflix special that summer that won her a Peabody Award and an Emmy Award for Outstanding Writing for a Variety Special, starting 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.
Hannah Gadsby has beaten out a star-studded field to win the 2019 Helpmann Award for Best Comedy Performer for her smash-hit stand up show Douglas.
