Hannah Gadsby is heading to Netflix with her latest show, Nanette.
Recently hailed by the New York Times as a “major new voice in comedy”, the comedian grew up on Tasmania, building up years of experiences that she has since turned into stand-up material. Last year, though, she announced that she was retiring from the comedy circuit, with Nanette becoming a blistering swansong for the Australian.
Now, ironically, that farewell from the mic will also be her debut Netflix special, with the comedy show recorded at the Sydney Opera House ready for release on the streaming service.
Nanette sees Gadsby get up close and personal about her life and growing up gay on the small island of Tasmania, delivering 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.
Explaining everything from how stand-up works to self-deprecation and the importance of stories like hers, the special follows a year of solitude for the comedian, as she tries to see what she could harvest from 12 months of focusing on nurturing her left-field existence.
The result has been hugely acclaimed, winning not only Best Show at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival but also the Best Show prize at the Lastminute.com Edinburgh Comedy Awards. It’s been called everything from life-changing to a masterpiece, and it premieres on Tuesday 19th June on Netflix worldwide.

Hannah Gadsby: Nanette is available on Netflix UK, as part of an £8.99 monthly subscription.
