Hannah Gadsby's Nanette To Hit Netflix In June
The award-winning show was filmed live in Sydney and will hit the streaming platform next month.
Aussie comedian Hannah Gadsby's critically acclaimed comedy Nanette will be arriving on Netflix on June 19.
It was announced on Wednesday, with a teaser trailer showing a glimpse of the show, which was recorded live at the Sydney Opera House earlier this year.
The show gained Gadsby worldwide critical acclaim, and won her multiple awards including Best Show at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, the Melbourne International Comedy Festival and the Adelaide Fringe. She also won the Best Comedy Performer at the Helpmann Awards.
Nanette was performed across the country before it did two sold-out runs in London and is now being performed in New York where it was extended three times. She'll then take the show to Los Angeles and finally to Montreal, where she'll perform it for the last time.
Amid all the success and accolades, while the New York Times was calling her a "major new voice in comedy", Gadsby announced Nanette would be her last show.
The show is, as Gadsby describes, not comedy but a "narrative". It's a raw, hilarious, heartbreaking look at topics like homophobic violence and mental illness through the lens of her own experiences.
She told the Sydney Morning Herald last year how liberating it was knowing that it would be her last show before retiring from stand-up, to be able to say exactly what she wanted.
"I really thought because it meant I'm not worrying about a career, I'm not worrying about my persona."
Nanette will hit Netflix globally on June 19, and it's not one to be missed.
