Sometimes life isn’t comedy: Hannah Gadsby’s Nanette

Hannah Gadsby’s Nanette. There are so many things she nails in this… well, calling it “a Netflix Special” is I suppose technically accurate, if ridiculously insufficient. I’m sure I’m not the first person to implore you to watch it.

Out of all her spot-on revelations and observations about human nature, it’s her critique of the medium of a comedy show that has really stuck with me, though this says more about me and what I’m grokking lately than it does about her; which medium best fits which messages? I am so curious to see what medium she chooses next!

A note for readers like me who prefer to sit with written words in order to fully process something, I found this transcript, but do watch the whole thing first if you can; this is just the trailer.
