Hannah Gadsby: Nanette
2018. 69 mins. Watch here.
Why watch? It’s probably the most talked-about Netflix special out there. Australian comic Hannah Gadsby’s extraordinary ‘Nanette’ won the Edinburgh Comedy Award in 2017, and the Barry Award at the Melbourne Comedy Festival. But when it hit the internet, she was rocketed to a global superstar. The show focuses on Gadsby’s experiences and the pain she felt growing up gay in Tasmania. It’s an incredibly powerful hour of autobiographical stand-up – it’s moving, complex and stays with you.
