Hannah Gadsby signs multi-title deal with Netflix

The new streaming deal includes a new, hour-long special and a multi-comic special produced and hosted by Gadsby.

Australian comedian Hannah Gadsby has signed a multi-title deal with Netflix. The deal includes a new, hour-long special from Gadsby, recorded on the Australian leg of their ‘Body of Work’ world tour. Gadsby will also produce and host a multi-comic special featuring an international cast of comedians.

‘In an effort to further open a door that I had to fight to get through myself, I will curate and host a line-up show on Netflix featuring six new, gender-diverse comedians,’ Gadsby said. ‘In a notoriously transphobic industry, I am looking to broaden the scope of opportunities for genderqueer performers from around the globe, as well as expand the diversity of offerings to audiences on one of comedy’s biggest platforms.
