World-class Australian award-winning funny person, Hannah Gadsby, has a brand new live show and it’s coming in the UK in March 2022!
Kicking off at Manchester’s Opera House, before embarking on a tour of the British Isles, including the equally iconic globally renown London Palladium for three nights (and another date has just been added due to demand). The highly anticipated Body of Work tour will also stop off at The King’s Theatre in Glasgow, Brighton Dome and Edinburgh Festival Theatre, before she heads to the US.
The overnight success of comedian was more than ten years in the making, with her award winning stand up shows a sell-out fixture in festivals across Australia and the UK since 2009. She played a character called Hannah on the TV series Please Like Me and has hosted three art documentaries, inspired by comedy art lectures she created to accompany collections at major galleries. Her first book Ten Steps To Nanette will be released later this year.
In 2018 the global sensation and ground-breaking Netflix special Nanette really changed things for Hannah. She won an Emmy and a Peabody. After that a lot of people (heaps actually) started paying attention to what she had to say. Opportunities came a-knocking, but Hannah decided to stick with what she loves and couldn’t quit: stand up comedy.
So, in 2019 she wrote and toured the critically acclaimed Douglas from Helsinki to Washington DC and everywhere in between, culminating in recording the show for Netflix in Los Angeles in February 2020, just in time for well…the rest of 2020. The year that was like no other saw Hannah bunkering down in her homeland, Australia, sheltering from a global pandemic and pondering what was next.
That ponder is now a show. A brand new live show. One could say it’s a new body of work. Couldn’t one?
