Before Hannah Gadsby's moving stand-up show Nanette became a Netflix sensation, the Australian comedian was bringing laughter and tears to live audiences in theatres and festivals around the world, including New York City, where Nanette played a three-times extended and sold-out run at SoHo Playhouse last spring.

This summer, Gadsby returns Off-Broadway on the back of a U.S. tour of her newest solo show, Douglas. The show will begin performances in San Francisco in April and finish up in New York at the Daryl Roth Theater beginning July 23.

Douglas, which is written and performed by Gadsby, will play a four-week engagement through August 17. The show's namesake, according to producers, is “a very specific dog,” and the only thing they have in common with Gadsby is inspiring the comedian to put pen to paper and turn out another show.

Douglas had its world premiere in Melbourne, Australia, March 27. The Off-Broadway run will be presented by WestBeth Entertainment, which presented the North American debut of Nanette.
