Hannah Gadsby and Nanette: What You Need to Know About the Comic and Netflix Special Everyone Is Talking About
| You should know this name: Hannah Gadsby. However, if you ask your neighbor who Hannah Gadsby is, they probably won't be able to tell you. That's about to change. Gadsby and her Netflix comedy special Nanette have slowly started making waves—and rightfully so.
"So basically I'm a fat, queer woman who makes no attempts to be attractive to men…I'm quite a cerebral comic, and I had to undermine all this, and I found that I was putting myself down all the time," she said.
She said she found herself playing into stereotypes, like that lesbians are angry, but she decided to quit comedy and address everything in Nanette because "I was hurting myself."
