Hannah Gadsby Is Returning To The Sydney Opera House In December

A portrait of Australian comedian Hannah Gadsby on stage wearing a blue suit.

Hannah Gadsby exploded into the cultural stratosphere back in 2018 with an arresting Netflix special called Nanette. It earned her an Emmy and Peabody award—millions around the world resonated with her story, told by turning the stand-up genre on its head.

Only problem? The premise for this seminal bit of comedy was all about Gadsby quitting comedy for good.

Well, we’re happy to report Gadsby didn't quit comedy—in fact, following her wild Netflix success, she wrote another epic bit called Douglas, toured a bunch, and is actually returning to the Sydney Opera House next month with a brand new show.

Called Body of Work, the show has made the rounds through non-locked down cities and states this year, namely Canberra, Tasmania, Darwin, Perth, and Adelaide, and will finally be hitting Sydney crowds in December. As for what the show's about, it's set to be centred around her musings on "what's next", penned while sheltering from the global pandemic. 

Supporting Hannah is award-winning performer and meta-comedy icon, Zoë Coombs Marr.

Tickets go on sale here at 9am on Friday 29 December.
