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. And now she’s heading over to Antwerp with her all-new ‘Douglas’ on 1 November 2019.
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
“one of the finest hours of stand-up I’ve seen” ★★★★★ – The Times, UK
“Nanette deserves to win all the awards because it changes everyone who goes to see it.” – The Scotsman
“one of the most powerful stand-up hours the Fringe has witnessed. The power of Nanette is undeniable and this show will last in the mind long after the final discarded Fringe flyer has been swept away” – The List, UK
