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.

Gadsby became a household name last year after Netflix aired an hour-long special of her Nanette performance at the Sydney Opera House. The show is peppered with musings on art history as well as poignant criticisms of sexism and homophobia.

The show netted her the Melbourne Comedy Festival's highest honour in 2017, with the Netflix adaptation landing her an AACTA Award for best performance in a television comedy. It also earned praise from celebrities around the world and, following its release, Gadsby was invited onto late-night talk shows and gave a rousing speech at The Hollywood Reporter's 2018 Women in Entertainment gala.
