It seems a pretty hard task to follow Hannah Gadsby's international smash-hit show, Nanette. After all, the one-woman stand-up performance copped serious praise on its 18-month travels across Australia and the UK, even scooping the top honours at both the Melbourne International Comedy Festival and Edinburgh Festival Fringe. It also spawned its very own Netflix special. And when Gadsby used the show to announce she was quitting comedy for good, we thought that was it.

But indeed, the beloved Aussie comedian is set to give the follow-up a red hot crack when she returns to the stand-up stage with her latest work, Douglas, named after her own pet pooch. While Nanette pulled apart the concept of comedy itself, dishing up an insight into Gadsby's past, Douglas promises to deliver a serve of "very new ideas", collected during her recent travels around the planet.

This show will mark Gadsby's first-ever US tour, though she'll be heading Down Under early 2020 with performances at Auckland's Civic Theatre on 1 February, and Wellington's Michael Fowler Centre on 3 February.

Hannah Gadsby: Douglas tickets will go on sale at 9am, Tuesday 11 June. You can sign-up for pre-sale access here.
