Movie Info

In her hilarious debut Netflix Original stand-up special, Hannah Gadsby: Nanette, comedian Hannah Gadsby gets up close and personal about her life and growing up gay on the small island of Tasmania. Recently hailed by the New York Times as a "major new voice in comedy," Hannah keeps her audience at the Sydney Opera House laughing with her sharp observations as she takes aim at everything from pride parades, unsolicited opinions and the whole history of art before she turns her punchlines into sucker punches, silencing the laughs and flipping the art of comedy completely on its head.

Hannah Gadsby spins her own life story into a clever, raging and confronting spiel against misogyny, homophobia and even the tired old tropes of comedy itself.

When Gadsby wrenches out her pain on stage, she reveals her strength, rage, and yes, winning humor.

November 20, 2018 | Full Review…

Gadsby is tired of censoring her own pain for the sake of making audiences feel comfortable. Nanette is a testament to this. It's time to make audiences feel uncomfortable in order to wake them up.

I am also exactly who this special is for. For Gadsby's fury is directed at people like me with laser-like acumen, humor and sobering grace.

You can believe this was a show that existed only in this moment and you feel elevated from being a part of it.

July 18, 2018 | Full Review…

Gadsby explains how comedy works, how tension is broken to bring relief. By the end, there is no relief for the audience. But perhaps there is some for Gadsby. After years of telling jokes, she is finally telling her story.
