About Hannah Gadsby

According to the New York Times, “Hannah Gadsby is angry, and she is amazing.” The Australian comedian and writer took 2018 by storm, asserting herself as a dominant force in the entertainment world. Already a successful actor and stand up down under, Hannah redefined the very art and genre of stand up comedy with her hit Netflix special Nanette, which boasts a rare rating of 100% on Rotten Tomatoes and helped earn her a spot on The Hollywood Reporter’s list of 100 most powerful women in entertainment this year. Almost entirely dedicating her Instagram feed to her beloved poodle-mix dogs, Hannah’s 255K+ Instagram followers have a chance to peek into her silly side.
