★★★★★ Tom Rhodes Radio Review for Hannah Gadsby in ‘The Exhibitionist’
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 me.
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 Gadsby!Intro song: Cutting Room (Hot Pants) – Oceanliners Audio Cameo: Jasper Rijkeboer from Delft, The Netherlands Stand-up clip from YouTube 1: Melbourne Comedy Festival All Stars supershow 2014 Hannah gadsby Stand-up clip from YouTube 2: Hannah Gadsby – Melbourne Comedy Festival 2012 End song: Slip of The Tongue – Mary Gautier Recorded at Hannah’s Edinburgh Festival apartment , Edinburgh August 2014
