Australian comedian Hannah Gadsby's first Netflix special, Nanette, is garnering a lot of praise for its candid take on topics like mental health and sexuality. Released just two weeks ago, the comedy special begins with deadpan humor before delving deep into Gadsby's personal stories regarding homophobia and abuse, deftly tackling the #MeToo movement in the process. She even says at one point that she's quitting comedy and many viewers say they can understand why by the end of her set.
Filmed at the Sydney Opera House, the special has been hailed as a triumph, jettisoning the genre of stand-up into new territory.
