A Token Event

A brand new stand up show.

Hannah Gadsby, world class, award winning funny person has a brand new live show - Body of Work, hitting stages across Australia and New Zealand from July 2021.

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? 

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

Important Show Information

We are really looking forward to seeing you here for Hannah Gadsby’s Body of Work.

Before you come, we need to remind you that Hannah’s shows are device free environments.

You will be required to switch off and put away any mobile devices including phones, smart watches, fit bits or any other device that may make a sound or have any lights on it. You will not be allowed to have them in your hand, they will need to be in a bag or a pocket and they must be switched off, not muted. This will be from the moment that you check into the venue. In addition cameras and other recording devices are similarly prohibited.

If your mobile device is used as part of a medical device then you need to notify us before the show by return email to discuss a medical exemption. Needing to have a device on to receive a call from a sitter (or similar) will not be grounds for an exemption.

This is a strict condition of entry to ensure an uninterrupted and focussed experience for the artist and the audience.

Please also note the air conditioning will also be set to cold in the Theatre so plan accordingly.

Running time 70mins no interval
Recommened for ages 15+
