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.

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”
