Nanette is a turning point for Gadsby as she embraces her life as “not normal” and moves beyond the restrictions of traditional stand-up to tell her full story. The result is a show that has earned Gadsby rave reviews and multiple awards across the U.K. and Australia with The Times describing the show as, “A comedy masterclass for the first half-hour and the second half dissolves into dark, pin-drop theatre.” For Nanette, Gadsby has won the 2018 Chortle Award for Best Comedy Show, The Edinburgh Comedy Award (“the Oscars of live comedy”), The Helpmann Award (Australia’s equivalent to a Tony Award) for Best Comedy Performer, the Barry Award for Best Show at the Melbourne Comedy Festival and Best Comedy at the Adelaide Fringe Festival.
Due to demand, Gadsby’s sold-out 2017 London run added a month of dates from February 5 through March 3, 2018, and she sold out her entire 2017 season at The Sydney Opera House, adding two final performances on January 20, 2018.
A stand-up comedian since 2006, Gadsby was a cast member on the TV series Please Like Me, which was seen on Pivot TV in the US and is now available on Hulu. The series was critically acclaimed and nominated for numerous awards including an International Emmy for Best Comedy Series. She also co-starred on the TV talk show, Adam Hills Tonight, and has written and presented her own TV documentaries and a three part series for ABC TV Australia. Her first book will be released in late 2018.
