Netflix has acquired the rights to Hannah Gadsby’s latest stand-up show, Douglas.
The Australian comedian announced on Tuesday that her hour-long comedy special, named after her beloved pet dog, will be available on the streaming giant from next year.
“I’m so excited to announce today that Douglas will be released on Netflix in 2020,” she said in a statement. “I’m really enjoying touring with the live performance, 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.”
Gadsby, who was born in Tasmania, is currently on the United States leg of her Douglas world tour. The stand-up show kicked off at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival in March, with reviewers describing it as a “far more upbeat” companion to her 2017 tour, Nanette.
