If you're yet to catch Hannah Gadsby's award-winning comedy show Nanette, you'd better jump to it. Having announced her impending retirement from stand-up, the Tassie-born comedian will be hanging up her comedy boots at the end of the year. Thankfully, she's leaving Australians with a parting gift, premiering the show at the Sydney Opera House in September and October.
Head along to catch the well-loved funny lady as she exits with a bang, the show a hilarious and raw account of taking on the world as a 'not normal'. Audiences will get a glimpse into Gadsby's life and her many capers during a recent year spent in solitude.
And if the accolades are anything to go by, Nanette is a show you don't want to miss. She was just named joint winner of Edinburgh Fringe Festival's Best Comedy Award — one of the biggest comedy titles in the world — and the show also scored plenty of local love this year, scooping awards for Best Comedy at Adelaide Fringe Festival, Best Comedy Performer at the Helpmann Awards and the Barry Award for Best Show at Melbourne International Comedy Festival.
