The standup iconoclast who broke the comedic mold with her hit Netflix special Nanette now answers the question of what comes next--and, more important, what came before. "There is nothing stronger than a broken woman who has rebuilt herself." --Hannah Gadsby, in Nanette Hannah Gadsby's unique standup special Nanette was a viral success--and to some, her worldwide fame may seem like an overnight sensation. But like everything else about Gadsby, there's more to her success than meets the eye. Despite her incredibly personal act, there's still so much you don't know about the comedian who took on trauma, #MeToo, and homophobia all in one special. In her first book, the queer Australian comedian, writer, and actress takes us through the key moments in her life that ultimately led to the creation of Nanette and her startling declaration that she was quitting comedy. She traces her growth as a gay woman from Tasmania--where homosexuality was illegal until 1997--to her ever-evolving relationship with comedy, to her struggle with late-in-life diagnoses of autism and ADHD, and finally to the backbone of Nanette--the renouncement of self-deprecation, the rejection of misogyny, and the moral power of telling the truth. Both harrowing and hilarious, Ten Steps to Nanette continues Hannah's long tradition of confounding expectations and norms, properly introducing us to one of the most explosive, formative voices of our time.
Autorenporträt
Hannah Gadsby stopped stand-up comedy in its tracks with her multi-award-winning show Nanette, which played to sold-out houses in Australia, the UK, and New York. Its launch on Netflix, and subsequent Emmy and Peabody wins, took Nanette (and Hannah) to the world. Hannah's difficult second album (which was also her eleventh solo show) was named Douglas, after her dog. Hannah walked Douglas around the world, selling out and scoring another Emmy nomination. Before all of this, Hannah appeared as a character called Hannah in Please Like Me (Hulu) and toured her native Australia and the UK as a stand-up comedian. She made art documentaries and did plenty of other things over the course of more than a decade in comedy, but that will do for now.
