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 2018 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 sell out 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.
What they have said about Nanette;
“As uproariously funny as it is profoundly furious.” The New Yorker
“The laughs of her show are a means to an end, which is, at its core, a ferocious attack on comedy itself.” The New York Times
“Nanette is the kind of work that leaves you shaken. Not because it’s really funny (it really is), or because it’s equally heartbreaking, but because it finds a fusion of those two modes that’s incandescent.” The Atlantic
Hannah is currently touring her brand new live show Douglas. Tour dates and ticket details can be found here.
