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.

For the Douglas tour we made a bunch of merchandise – and we don’t want you to miss out if you’re in an area that Hannah can’t make it to. There are bum bags, hats, pins, T-shirts and more, go on have a look around. PS. Hannah has another dog Jasper, we’ve told him some of the pins are of him and not Douglas.


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 both a Peabody and Emmy 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.


Hannah’s overnight success was more than ten years in the making, with her award-winning stand-up shows a sell-out fixture in festivals across Australia and in the UK for more than a decade. She played a character called Hannah on the series Please Like Me, has hosted three art documentaries, inspired by comedy art lectures she created to accompany collections at major galleries; and is soon to release a book.
