I have some news… I’m going on a world tour with a brand new show that I’ve called ‘Douglas’. So no… I haven’t quit comedy. It’s beginning in Melbourne next month and then going around the United States with many more dates to come.

Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, Gadsby explained further her decision to remain in comedy.
“My whole life and world changed, so there’s no real reason to change absolutely everything. There’s a certain amount of comfort in going back on stage in an environment I’m somewhat familiar with,” she told the publication.
“After what I did with Nanette, I’m not going backwards; I’m going to keep pushing forward – and probably upsetting some comedy purists again. We can’t please everyone!”
