Presented by Token Events in association with Darwin Festival

Hannah Gadsby, world class, award-winning funny person, has a brand-new live show – Body of Work – hitting stages across Australia and New Zealand.

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 hunkering 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?

Fortunately, being in Australia at this particular moment in history means that Hannah is able to premiere Body of Work here, bringing the show to Darwin Festival.

Support act: In a new addition to the line-up, Hannah Gadsby will be supported by comedian Geraldine Hickey.
