Hannah Gadsby

Tasmania’s own Hannah Gadsby stopped stand-up comedy in its tracks with her multi-award-winning show, Nanette. Premiered on Netflix in 2018, it left audiences captivated by her blistering honesty and her singular ability to take them from rolling laughter to devastated silence. Its Emmy and Peabody wins took Nanette (and Hannah) to the world. Hannah’s difficult second album (which was her eleventh solo show), named Douglas after her dog, was an Emmy-nominated smash hit. Douglas covered Hannah’s autism diagnosis, moving beyond the trauma at the centre of Nanette and instead letting the world see the view from Hannah’s brain – one that sees the world differently but with breathtaking clarity. Hannah Gadsby’s “overnight” success was more than ten years in the making, with her award-winning stand-up shows having been a fixture in festivals across Australia and the UK since 2009. More recently, The University of Tasmania awarded Hannah an honorary doctorate in recognition of her role as an ambassador for LGBTIQ+ people worldwide. Hannah has done plenty of other things over the course of more than a decade in comedy, but that will do for now.
