Just For Laughs is thrilled to announce the return of Hannah Gadsby to Vancouver, BC! Following her sold out shows in 2020 as part of JFL NorthWest presented in association with SiriusXM, Hannah returns with her new show Body of Work.
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 bunkering 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?
