Hannah Gadsby's new comedy special 'Douglas' to premiere in 2020

Press Trust of India  |  Los Angeles 

Comedienne Hannah Gadsby will be returning to Netflix with a new stand up comedy special titled "Douglas".

"Douglas" had its world premiere at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival last month. The Australian comic is currently touring with "Douglas" and is excited to reach out to the world audience with its Netflix premiere.

"I'm so excited to announce today that Douglas will be released on Netflix in 2020, I'm really enjoying touring with the live performance, but there will be places in the world that I won't be able to visit, so it's wonderful that Netflix will bring the show to every corner of the globe," Gadsby said in a statement to Variety.

The comedienne kicked-off the American tour of "Douglas" in San Franciso on April 29 and the tour is set to conclude after a four week run in Broadway at the Daryl Roth Theater, New York.

The show is named after frequently Instagrammed pup, Douglas.

In "Douglas", Gadsby talks about her recent autism diagnosis, which she discovered right before she was about to embark on her breakout show "Nanette".
