Hannah Gadsby – Body of Work

When

Wednesday 28 September from 7pm to 8pm

Cost

Starting from: $74.90

In 2018 the global sensation and ground breaking Netflix special Nanette really changed things for Hannah. She won 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: stand up comedy.

So, in 2019 she wrote and toured the critically acclaimed Douglas from Helsinki to Washington DC 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 her homeland, 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?

After managing to tour Australia with Body of Work for most of last year – no small feat under the circumstances – Hannah finished 2021 on stage at the Sydney Opera House. By popular demand, she will now return to Sydney to perform two more shows at the Sydney Opera House in September 2022, after spending the year touring the UK, Europe and the USA.

“[Gadsby] has opted here for a feel-good show, “a bit of ta-dah”, and what a joy it is.” ★★★★★ The Guardian Australia

WINNER Outstanding Writing for a Variety Special – Nanette, Emmy Awards 2019

WINNER Peabody Award – Nanette, Peabody Awards 2019
