Hannah Gadsby's New Stand-Up Special 'Douglas' Heads To Netflix

Following the worldwide success of 'Nanette', Netflix has announced they will be picking up Hannah Gadsby's new show.

During an Emmy awards For Your Consideration event for Netflix, Gadsby made the announcement that her latest show would be hitting the streaming service in 2020.

Gadsby is currently touring with her 'Nanette' follow-up, 'Douglas' which was named after her dog. The show touches on the incredible response to 'Nanette' and the lessons she learned from it.

"I’m really enjoying touring with the live performance," Gadsby said, "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."

'Nanette' hit Netflix last year and made Gadsby a household name, shooting her into international stardom. During the show, Gadsby also mentioned she had made the decision to retire from stand-up comedy. After the enormous success, she was forced to reconsider.

Speaking to Jimmy Fallon on 'The Tonight Show', Gadsby opened up about the bind she found herself in. "I'm left with a choice," she told Fallon, "I'll either be an idiot or a hypocrite. I'll be a hypocrite.

"I said I was quitting and then -- if I quit, I'm an idiot now. If the show had gone as badly as I had planned it would have worked."

Thankfully, 'Douglas' will hit Netflix at some point in 2020.
