Rhodes Radio Review for Hannah
Gadsby in ‘The
Hannah Gadsby is one of the brightest shining lights on the world
wide comedy circuit.
An innately gifted story teller whose tales of awkward humiliation
and personal triumph will have anyone from any walk of life or age
group howling with laughter.
I first met Hannah 4 years ago in Perth, Australia when we were
both doing a comedy festival there together. In July of this year
we worked together again at Toomler comedy club in Amsterdam the
week before we both went off to do the Edinburgh Fringe festival.
Sharing an apartment together in Amsterdam I was privileged to see
Hannah tightening up and putting the finishing touches on what
would be her Edinburgh show this year, which made the experience of
seeing her finished product at the festival even more enjoyable for
In this year’s show called ‘The Exhibitionist’ she used a slide
show of great works of art interspersed with photos of her growing
up through life. It was part art history lecture and part personal
journey through her life.
Hannah got her university degree in art history and art is one of
her personal obsessions and greatest passions in life. In this
episode we talk about art, art history, her Edinburgh show ‘The
Exhibitionist’ and the fact that Tom Rhodes Radio gives her show a
5 star review.
It is an extra treat to know that Hannah does not do many podcast
chats and that she made the exception to be on mine. I adore this
woman as a human being, as a comedian and as a fellow art lover.
Her Edinburgh show of 2014 was one of my favorite shows that I saw
this year and her stand up comedy is consistently solid powerful
laughs every time I see her perform.
It is my pleasure to present to you now the one and only Hannah
