We saw Hannah Gadsby of “Nanette” fame this weekend in downtown L.A. performing her follow-up show, “Douglas”. If you haven’t seen “Nanette”, catch it on Netflix. Those looking for straight comedy won’t get it; instead, she opens up in a way you haven’t quite seen before, or least I hadn’t. It’s the same with “Douglas” although not quite as heavy but still sharply pointed, revealing and insightful. And damned funny.
She’s going on from here to New York where she’ll play for a straight month! Then onto Reykjavik, the UK, Europe, Australia and New Zealand. I assume they’ll film this for broadcast at some point, so if you can’t see her live, then hold onto your hats.
Here she is on Jimmy Fallon’s show after the success of “Nanette”.
