Douglas is the name of the comic’s eldest dog.
Commenting on the show, Netflix stated: “You can expect your expectations to be set and met by “Douglas,” a tour from the dog park to the renaissance and back guided by one of comedy’s most sparkling and surprising minds.”
Gadsby’s earlier Netflix standup, “Nanette,” was well received, winning a prestigious Peabody Award and Emmy for outstanding writing for a variety special.
When “Douglas” was announced last year, Gadsby said, “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.”
The comic has also appeared on various late-night talk shows, including “The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon” and as a guest on Conan O’Brien’s podcast.
Last week, Netflix announced Jerry Seinfeld’s second stand-up show is also slated for May.
