Meet an Australian Comic Who Is Coming to Texas for the First Time – and You Are Invited!

Who is Douglas? Well, apparently, Hannah Gadsby thinks he is the only one who can help her follow up on the trail blazed by her last show: Nanette. Hannah is all set to take the mysterious Douglas for a trot around America for her first ever US tour. Don’t miss her show in Austin when the talented comic performs live at Paramount Theatre this Saturday, June 1st!

Tasmania’s own Hannah Gadsby has come to the world’s attention through her multi-award-winning stand-up show Nanette, which played to sold out houses across Australia, London, Edinburgh, New York and Los Angeles before launching on Netflix in June as the first Australian Netflix Original Comedy Special and stopping the comedy world in its tracks.

The overnight success of Hannah Gadsby was more than ten years in the making, with her award-winning stand up shows a sellout fixture in festivals across Australia and the UK. She played a character called Hannah on the TV series Please Like Me and has hosted three art documentaries, inspired by comedy art lectures she created to accompany collections at major galleries.

Hannah Gadsby: Douglas is presented by Moontower Comedy. Moontower Comedy Festival is an annual, multi-day comedy festival held in Austin and known for attracting some of the brightest stars in the industry. Moontower Comedy also presents year-round events, most often held at Paramount Theatre. Following Hannah, event headliners for the spring and summer season include Eddie Izzard, Ilana Glazer, Jordan Jesse Go, Celeste Barber, JB Smoove, and Marc Maron.

Don’t miss your opportunity to see Australia’s hottest comedic act here in Austin! Tickets to see Hannah Gadsby: Douglas at Paramount Theatre on June 1st range from $40 to $60 and may be purchased online at www.austintheatre.org.
