The most extraordinary stand-up set I’ve ever seen

I watched Hannah Gadsby’s Nanette tonight after reading lots of rave reviews. it’s even better than the reviews say, although it’s not remotely easy to watch: while it’s very funny it’s also very powerful and very upsetting in places.

It feels odd to recommend a stand-up show by saying I was in floods of tears for most of it, but it’s true. It’s an extraordinary piece of work, a masterpiece of stand-up.
