Critics Of "Hannah Gadsby: Nanette"
June 28, 2018 In its rescrambling and redefining of what can take place on a comedy stage, it's a beast that other sets are going to have to contend with this year.Read in Source
June 28, 2018 It is an extremely angry hour, an extremely cathartic one and an extremely necessary one. An art form cannot thrive if it refuses to look itself in the face and question its own necessity.Read in Source
June 28, 2018 Standup is, at its core, about an understanding of the power of shared space. Nanette takes that shared space and bursts it open.Read in Source
July 02, 2018 Hannah Gadsby's Nanette is the mic drop to end all mic drops-a cross between comedy special and one-woman show that's actually a 69-minute Dear John letter to the entire enterprise of stand-up.Read in Source
June 27, 2018 Nanette is the kind of work that leaves you shaken. Not because it's really funny (it really is), or because it's equally heartbreaking, but because it finds a fusion of those two modes that's incandescent.Read in Source

June 28, 2018 In Nanette, Gadsby strains against the impulse to end every joke with a punchline. To diffuse the tension as such would be a cop-out. She wants the audience to sit with it...powerful, uncomfortable, and searingly angry.Read in Source
June 28, 2018 I truly hope Hannah Gadsby doesn't quit comedy. The obvious irony of Nanette is that her finale has given her that push into mainstream attention and near-universal critical adoration.Read in Source
