Hannah Gadsby: Body of Work
Comedy | Theater

Hannah Gadsby

Part of Spring 2022
Hannah Gadsby, who captured the world’s attention with her groundbreaking standup shows Nanette and Douglas, has embarked on a North American tour of her highly anticipated new show Body Of Work. In 2018, Hannah’s global sensation Nanette played to sold-out houses across the world before launching on Netflix, garnering Hannah an Emmy and a Peabody. After that a lot of people (heaps actually) started paying attention to what she had to say. Opportunities came a-knocking, but Hannah decided to stick with what she loves and couldn’t quit: standup comedy.

So, in 2019 she wrote and toured the critically acclaimed Douglas from Helsinki to New York, including an Off-Broadway run, and everywhere in between, culminating in recording the show for Netflix in Los Angeles in February 2020, just in time for well … the rest of 2020. The year that was like no other saw Hannah bunkering down in regional Australia sheltering from a global pandemic and pondering what was next.

That ponder is now a show. A brand-new live show. One could say it’s a new body of work. Couldn’t one?
