CO­ME­DIAN

When the Tas­ma­nian-born co­me­dian took the stage at Newyork’s Soho Play­house in March with her onewoman show Nanette, The New York Times her­alded her per­for­mance as “a riv­et­ing Newyork de­but … that an­nounces a ma­jor new voice”.while Gadsby had honed her brand of self-dep­re­cat­ing les­bian com­edy over more than a decade of stand-up in Europe and Aus­tralia, in the wake of the #Metoo move­ment, Nanette hit a par­tic­u­lar chord, call­ing out the likes of Har­vey We­in­stein, Louis C.K. and Bill Clin­ton.the show has been picked up by Net­flix. – GS
