Why See Hannah Gadsby?
A name you should probably know, or if you don't you will soon enough, Hannah Gadsby took the comedy world by storm with her Award-winning show entitled Nanette. A sold-out Edinburgh fringe run and a Netflix special later Hannah Gadsby returns to the stage with her brand new show, Douglas.
Inspired by her dog, Douglas sees Gadbsy discuss the success that Nanette had, and what she learned in its aftermath. Blisteringly funny and unapologetic, Gadsby is Comedy's shiny 'new' star and this Tasmanian wit shows no sign of being a 'one hit wonder'.
Debuting at the 2017 Edinburgh Fringe Festival critics donned Gadsby's Nanette as a game changer, overturning the conventions of comedy and bringing a new style and voice into a somewhat overcrowded market. Openly talking about gender, equality, anger, homophobia and art Nanette was supposed to be Gadsby's final farewell to stand-up, luckily for us, it seems she has now overturned this statement (phew!).
A name that we are sure to be hearing of in the future, don't miss your chance to see Hannah Gadsby live!

The legendary four return to the stage once again!
This is one time where all the hype and hoopla is not only justified, but doesn't come close to suggesting the grandeur of the work on stage. A Triumph.
