Review: Hannah Gadsby, Nanette, Netflix

Tasmania-born performer Hannah Gadsby said that she would quit comedy after this show. As far as I know she hasn't changed her mind but events have meant that her stand-up retirement seems to be on ice at the moment. She is currently performing an extended run of Nanette in New York and already has a Los Angeles date in the diary too. That change of direction might have to wait a while. But if she does eventually quit she is certainly going out on a high. Nanette isn't just a comedy show, it's a landmark comedy show.
