#MeToo, homophobia — nothing's off topic for Hannah Gadsby in new Netflix comedy special
Hannah Gadsby is funny — but her new comedy special is going to leave viewers with a lot to unpack after the laughter.
After the success of her stage current stage show Nanette — in which she poignantly (and hilariously) tackles everything from feminism to homophobia to the #MeToo movement — the actress and stand-up comedian is releasing a Netflix comedy special of the same name at 3:01 a.m. ET on June 19, EW can exclusively reveal.
A stand-up comedian since 2006, Gadsby was a cast member on the series Please Like Me (now available on Hulu). She also costarred on the talk show Adam Hills Tonight and has written and presented her own TV documentaries and a three-part series for ABC TV Australia.
