With this joke she’s clearly saying: Not only do I know what a TERF is, but I say fuck ’em all.

The brilliance of this groundbreaking comedy special lies within in its charge to improve the human … Sunflowers takes up just a few minutes of Hannah Gadsby's Nanette, the Tasmanian comic's debut Netflix comedy special.

If you don't have personal experience, you need to be aware of that.". She spends the first third of her special introducing us to who she is, making sure that we know she is a lesbian. The Netflix special, filmed from Gadsby’s 2017 live run … After years of telling jokes, she is finally telling her story. Gadsby opens the show by asking audience members who have and haven’t seen the predecessor – full of trauma heavy, value-challenging stuff – “What the f…” do we expect from this show?

A bit much?

Nanette isn't for someone who wants to laugh a lung out, and yet it's something everyone should see. Perhaps this is a well-worn comedic subject, but it’s hard to quibble with Gadsby’s sillier takes on the merits of “biscuit” over “cookie,” or “jumper” versus “sweater.” (Biscuit being mostly superior for its use in a favorite Gadsby epithet, “dick biscuit.”).

There are nine results that pop up, but if you select the one from 1889 entitled Sunflowers and then zoom in as close as you can and then put your face to the screen, you will end up nose-to-pixel with a digital stroke of yellow paint.

There was an error submitting the form. Okay, so back to the sunflowers. Then you understood the message and how our complacency to evil is damaging our humanity. The Netflix special, filmed from Gadsby’s 2017 live run of the show, shook audiences in 2018. Much like she did in “Nanette,” Gadsby takes a moment to set expectations for what the audience is about to see.

Hannah Gadsby: Douglas is streaming on Netflix now. And she has way too much fun pointing out the very odd butt-crack placement of a linen sheath.

It is a strange, rare thing: a comedy show that hopes you don't leave laughing. “Nanette,” her performance that toured widely and was released on …

She’s experienced plenty of tension in her own life, growing up gay in a state – Tasmania – that decriminalised homosexuality only in 1997. Douglas is clever, a rebirth for Gadsby and her fans. An art-history graduate, she cites the veneration of Picasso – a child abuser, she argues, whose cubist style was just “putting a kaleidoscope filter on [his] dick”.

Copyright © Fandango. Hannah Gadsby is the Michael Jordan of standup in one way — her stated plans to retire shouldn’t be taken seriously. It’s an electrifying experience – and not a pleasant one. There’s no one else we should be taking art history lessons from. It's a startling performance, moving slowly but inexorably from barbed sweetness to outright rage, and it should take most viewers, especially men, right out of their comfort zone. Gadsby is tired of censoring her own pain for the sake of making audiences feel comfortable. I am also exactly who this special is for. Had she known it would be so successful, she said, she would have budgeted better – spread her trauma across multiple shows.

In Nanette, she publicly quit standup, the … The pride flag—I love what it means... but the flag itself?

But this time, she doesn't just want to laugh it off.

It's time to make audiences feel uncomfortable in order to wake them up. By the time it’s over, you’ll never look at a statue of the Virgin Mary the same again. But it was just a break.

Get really close, slowly move backward, and take a minute to assess what you see. There’s no mincing of ‘the words’, as Gadsby might say – the assertion peddled by this fringe group that vaccinations cause autism is – to her as a person living with autism – offensive.

Douglas is the follow-up to Nanette, streaming globally on Netflix streaming from May 26. She lays out everything about her that a self-deprecating comic would use to garner a laugh: her hometown, the relationship with her mom, coming out, her art history degree—all the way down to a confrontation in which a man thought she was a guy hitting on his girlfriend. And that's precisely why Gadsby's Nanette hits so hard.

“Hannah Gadsby: Douglas” is streaming now on Netflix.

Who knew Titian could be funny?

Every product was carefully curated by an Esquire editor. Hey y’all..Douglas (the show) is now out in the world, so you don’t have to be.

Its centrepiece comes when Gadsby addresses ongoing homophobia and the implication (implicit in Australian discourse, she says) that gays are a threat to children.

While “Douglas” offers what Gadbsy calls “a gentle and very good-natured needling of the patriarchy,” her more trivial fare is some of the show’s best jokes.

“I’m a little bit furious,” she says, not joking now, not letting us off the hook. This is a lecture,” she opines, before launching into an illuminating and humorous deluge of paintings of what she calls “women dancing naked in groups of three in a forest.” Later on, she does the same with women hanging out against trees.

Comedy has always been a bit of a boys' club, one that until recently shielded its own dark history from the world. Please try again. But it's when she jokes, "I identify as tired," that the tone of the show starts to change. I had a very nice time.

That’s delivered with more bitterness than humour, as Gadsby writes off the entire history of western art as a patriarchal con.

Gadsby addresses these concerns and more in “Douglas,” her second Netflix special, a worthy successor that fulfills the funny promise of “Nanette” and leaves the trauma in the past. Hannah Gadsby spins her own life story into a clever, raging and confronting spiel against misogyny, homophobia and even the tired old tropes of comedy itself.

And we laugh at every joke, because they're funny and devoid of any reason to feel guilty for laughing. Gadsby is tired of censoring her own pain for the sake of making audiences feel comfortable. She takes a well-deserved piss out of Americans during a particularly funny section about linguistic differences between English-speaking countries.

Gadsby may not care about certain half-baked critiques, but she clearly made some subtle adjustments for one in particular.

"What I don't have the right to do is spread anger," she admits. For Gadsby's fury is directed at people like me with laser-like acumen, humor and sobering grace.

The best example of the absurdity of calling this is Hannah calling self-deprecating humor, "humiliating," for someone on the margins like her.

She admits not going to the police, because she thought it was "all that she was worth," adding, "That is what happens when you soak one child in shame and give permission to another to hate." Gadsby is tired of censoring her own pain for the sake of making audiences feel comfortable.
