Hannah Gadsby in Toronto
Just for Laughs presents
Hannah Gadsby’s tenth solo show was Nanette. It did alright.
Nanette took out the top prizes at the Melbourne and Edinburgh festivals before sitting down in New York and dropping a Netflix special last year that started a global conversation that continues today. It even earned Hannah an Emmy and a Peabody.
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’s using 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 first ever US tour.
