Hannah Gadsby Biography

Hannah Gadsby is an award-winning Australian comedian who thinks quickly and moves slowly. She is sardonic, laconic and, after numerous bone-crunching accidents, bionic. Her droll delivery, delightful wordplay and heart-breakingly funny, self-deprecating observations have delighted audiences all over the world.

Hannah began her stand-up career in 2006 when she was “discovered” at the Hobart Comedy Festival. Relieved that she existed, she went on to win the national final of Raw Comedy and followed this up with a very impressive second place in the Edinburgh Fringe Festival’s So You Think You’re Funny?

Since then, Hannah has performed to sold-out houses at comedy festivals across Australia, accepted an invitation to perform at the exclusive Kilkenny Comedy Festival, the prestigious Montreal Just for Laughs comedy festival and appeared at the Edinburgh Fringe and New Zealand Comedy Festivals. In 2013, Hannah’s solo show Happiness is a Bedside Table was nominated for Best Show in the Melbourne International Comedy Festival.

Surprised and relieved that she maintained a healthy pallor in front of the camera, Hannah took up a regular spot on ABC TV’s Adam Hills Tonight from 2011-2013. She has also made appearances on Channel 10’s Good News Week, ABC TV’s Spicks and Specks, Agony Aunts and New Zealand TV 3’s 7 Days. Determined to make use of her Art History degree for the purposes of debt recovery, Hannah has written and presented three art documentaries for ABC TV, with her brand-new series Nakedy Nudes screening in early 2018. Hannah takes every opportunity to present her incredibly popular comedic art lectures at festivals around the world.

In 2014, Hannah joined the cast of ABC and Participant Media’s critically acclaimed Please Like Me from their second season as the character of Hannah through to the end of the series, which concluded at the end of 2016. Hannah returned to the stage in 2017 with her self-described swan song, and tenth stand-up show, Nanette.

This powerful, critically acclaimed show has seen Hannah win a Peabody Award, Best Comedy at the Adelaide Fringe Festival, the Barry Award for best show at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, the Helpmann Award for best comedy performance and Last Minute Edinburgh Comedy Award (the comedy equivalent of an Oscar). The show also went on to earn a 100% on Rotten Tomatoes.

Since her success in Edinburgh, Nanette has had a return run in Melbourne performing shows at the Arts Centre, Sydney Opera House, two runs at London’s Soho Theatre and a season the New York Soho Playhouse. In January 2018, Hannah recorded Nanette at the Concert Hall of the Sydney Opera House for the first Australian Netflix Original Comedy Special.
