I just like. Why are you angry. It doesn't make sense you're talking about is not and i think that i think honestly. I think we'd have a much more interesting dialogue if we didn't do the difference between men and women and we did the difference between near typicals in an end. More atypical folk. Because a lot of you know the difference between men and women has shaped the way we view minimum and like that joke faked out know in popular culture.

What was your thought process after you're diagnosed about whether to talk about it onstage, and as you obviously did not include it explicitly in net. Decide not to talk about it right away.

That's pretty much in a very large nutshell. You have said that at the time that that answer of the autism diagnosis freed you up to at least for time, not to look as much as the problem was inward and much more focused on the problems outward that said on Conan's podcasts, you describe net as a show about how a person with autism things and I mean. Obviously you can say that hypothetically about anything you've done. But what do you mean in terms of net in in what ways do you think that special exhibits autistic line of thinking or way of perceiving well? It's specific may overnight to imagine. But. It's the connecting. The macro macos one way. I. didn't match up on July understood. The Stern, but I was ran under the assumption that the world made sense I was wrong.

You're well known in Australia in the UK, so the audience is your perform for it I had a certain frame of reference for you and your work, and also the this was a show done at I, four the Melbourne comedy festival, which has its own sort of context in which people are expected to do these sort of shows that are sort of thematically connected, and then it comes out on Netflix.

A quote from an American comedian Moshe casher. that. STANDUPS stand up Comedians at least in.

"Fox. Each episode comedian comes on to play a clip one of their jobs and it's how they wrote it and how it fits into what they're trying to do with their comedy. This week's guest is Hannah Gadsby starting comedy, two thousand six. Hannah came up in the Australian system of putting together new our set every year. Each recalled quirky things like kiss me. Quick Jubes or happiness is a bedside table, but it's fitting that a decade later she won't with a proper noun because Nanette took on a life of its own starting off by winning the top prizes at the Melbourne Comedy Festival and Borough Fringe Festival, two, thousand, seventeen to its release on Netflix in two, thousand, eighteen, which. which garnered an emmy and a peabody? All while becoming the most discuss special in the state since I'd say Chris Rock's nineteen ninety-six breakthrough pain internationally, it was probably the biggest special ever, but to Hannah who has for years pushed back on the idea of genius, thinking of it, not as a person, but an event, a combination of guys. That was all net. The net was the one who pushed back on the idea of joke, specifically in how they failed to tell the totality of the story, which leaves the audience off the Hook and confronting reality of the tellers trauma in that probably made a strongest case against self-deprecation, saying to be self deprecating when our son who lives in the margins is not humility. It's humiliation. By deliberately forgoing laughs to make audiences sit with stories of sexual assault and abuse. The net questioned comedy intern much of comedy debated, if even counted as Standup as acknowledges though she created a net in relative obscurity, though she was quite well known in Australia, the net was toward and released during the height of the I. Push The me too movement at a time when audiences were most ready to receive it. Be It positively or negatively. Comedy is often a matter of timing. But, then what does Hannah do next? It's a question that's even harder when you consider. The sort of special in net was a special where she said she was going to quit comedy, but also one where she spent the majority of it confronting comedy, questioning its ability to capture all. She wanted to say all she needed to say. So meet Douglas named after one of her dogs. It recently came out on Netflix in. It Hannah mostly tried to be I. Hope you're sitting down really funny. It has like a ton of jokes and more for example there is some structural inventiveness including that she starts shale laying out exactly everything. She's going to talk about during the hour. It's hard to say the special about one thing, but as hand, and I discussed. It's largely about showing you how she thinks the way she does then trying to explain why as she tells the story of her autism diagnosis as she puts it. It's meant to be a romantic comedy. The CLIP FROM DOUGLAS WE'RE GONNA play as the story Hannah tells about what was like growing up with autism before she knew she was on the spectrum as Hannah wasn't diagnosed until later in life, not coincidentally enough right before she started working on the net, so here is Hannah.

"It's not. How did it play with the room? I mean the first time I went to stay, absolutely owned the room and I look back. In hindsight, it had nothing to do with the material. It's just I was a creature from out of space. It's like I just woke up on stage. And, I just woke up. Had A. Going to Dogma Freezer. Yoga phrase because. As I ran. The scenario is on what to do like I thought. How hard can it be to create a small dog Hong? Turns out really hard, so I've just got an overcooked dog. Phrase like that's because it didn't happen, but I was taking it to its logical conclusion. Yeah, it was good, but I didn't go any further I. It's funny, but. And did you feel that? Were you immediately hooked with the idea of you? Know you get a great reaction to doing this? Was it immediately something you knew you wanted to do? More of not not dealing with your dog, but performing comedy in front of others gaps. And soon as Respond people reacted to me that react to my facial expressions. I wasn't always aware of why people were laughing, but I knew that. They were and it felt nice felt really nice felt like you know is participating in the world in a way that I'd never felt like I could before. The my issue was is like I didn't have to be involved in A. Comedy Circuit, but I didn't have access to. I'm not very good at networking and I was appalling man. You know and I. Long I do this, you know. This is so much more to do anything. Beyond just doing what you do on stage, but so I took me a long time to. And, that's why the competition so important to me because I wouldn't have done comedy. Had They not pay? These infrastructure rounded. I would've? I would have been doing. My life was going great, so I can't imagine things would be great for me and we should just note so this was as you say, sort of like an open Mike thing associated with the Melbourne comedy festival, and is it and you one.

Everybody's attention with net right. Well I would say Austrailia imagined. She was big Jim before but yes absolutely was a communist special that she did for net flicks onto Netflix and it became a sensation partly because it was funny because she was the she talked about abuse and various misogyny and transphobia and things like that and just an mid really great connections of boats herself as a performer. Kind of in a way. In encouraging or encouraging. But maybe validating in a way Type of humor. That is indeed misogynist and transphobic and stuff and so the kind of thing she said in the wasn't. She said she's going to stop doing that kind of self deprecating humor because actually contributes to the problem an incredible incredibly powerful moving until in his special. I mean I think one of the interesting things that ah boats when you have a huge success and also when you make a proclamation like that is what where do you go from there. And what's interesting about into her next show and what she came back with because she said because actually she had come out as being autistic now as and she said the actually she'd had that diagnosis prior to doing annette. She chose not to speak about it in net because she felt she had a bigger point to make with Ninette. And she said no no net. And then that musicals. God No no no. No no no you gotta musical jokes. And then if you're in Scotland and someone says to You. Are you looking at? Yeah Polina. No there's nothing you say. Are you aware of that musical in Scotland Dino? No no no. Nanette thank you. She said yes she didn't want to talk about it. And I it was interesting. I also think that for particularly for the LGBTQ plus community the idea of sending yourself up for humor and actually not wanting to do that anymore was so pertinent for me at the time that I saw net when it first came out and I just thought is very true. Would so used to. I remember having conversations who came out with my friends from school. I remember we comes as and when I came out with people from school because I was nineteen so people are being like nineteen. No as friends from school all right. It wasn't like I was put back a year and now I remember saying people like Oh. I'm Gabe DOT can again. You know he's having to try and qualify main.

What was at this would have been seventeen thousand nine hundred different then? Let's shaggy around people being gay. I'm say surpassing I'm going to be gay but I'm not going to help sex like I'm not gonna I'm not going to be. Do you know what it was. It was like if you think about even then the image of then was George. Michael is agency. That was the image. You know who is that when he's bashing into trees and things on these raindrop. Things t was just vilified and it was disgusting. He he was treated down the way too because he was made to feel other but in a very long winded way saying is that I just think that's about cats. Be saying that you knew a lot of people have to send themselves up. Didn't want to anymore and I liked them and then we went to see Douglas her show. Yes that's right where we learned all about the fold of Douglas which you find out what that is funny and she said some really she said some fascinating stuff about the patriarchy damn them damn them as a sort of as a as a as a source of material and also for comedic material I think is great. The way she makes things funny and also mix great point and quite revelatory as well. Yes and she's just you know because of autism Says she notices the details and certain things the other people would in my house? I'm a I'm showing around in the dressing room and we'd been I met at this thing would be invited to Amazon. Did and you go free really bag as sort of a gift to give the thing that little Charlie Charlie back stink. When you're on 'em in my dressing piles of clothes in bags and we're going reinisch went. Oh Amazon you will dams one thing and as I said it then. She said later but really bizarre details and I was like it was kind of full of clothes spilling out was just interesting that that was an example of that just happened just completely dinner thing in the room.

You know that sort of it's like rain. It feels good you know. It really does depend on the Christie's room. I don't like people sometimes people whistle and I hate that I understand the impulses positive so I M my response. But you know like if I'm able to contextualized annoys it's much easier for me to process it deal with so say there's a siren if I can't see what's making the sarin for some reason it's more painful than if I'm I bowling you know the the ambulances as it goes past So if I'm doing my job correctly on stage I feel more like a conductor of the noise right. I have more control if I'm not doing then. You know the the crowds not e-e-e-e-no sort of responding than it's a little chaotic. Yeah you'd be the first comic stay on stage saying look quiet down. Don't applaud so loudly I have done. Stop sharing me heavy. Really what response you get a very confused response to that. You have to be really careful. Custodians is like. Do you want us to like you? It's just generally when an individual breaks out so it's like positive heckling and I respond to positive heckling the same ways I respond to negative heckling. So it's not even a the the content of what the heck is it's just the disruption that it causes so I'll get some go. You know you know I love you and I'm like no you don't you've never met me quiet. Shush you know and this is. Do you say that or think that no? I Say I think people find that funny because it's sort of a genuine response right and it's also true you can't love me the never made me you they. They'd like the idea of me and good on them. Considering everything we've talked about you must be really surprised by your success. You had so you really had so many years of failure and trauma I honestly. It's kind of overwhelming. Yeah you know I do feel like sometimes when you hear a successful person sort of going. Oh this is a surprise. You like yeah but you worked your whole life toward this. So there's something like Taylor Swift. I'm not convinced that she's surprised. But I am genuinely like I can't icon process. I've just won't my first tone like I own a home for someone who's been homeless. This is just. I can't I can't believe it. It's been great to talk with you.

Maureen Corrigan has a review of a recent novel that she says through the vehicle of comic fiction takes readers on a road trip through struggling towns and farmlands of rural America. It's called Saint Christopher. It's by Nancy McKinley. I'm feeling so cooped up these days. Who isn't that? I sometimes find myself getting in the car. And taking aimless rides to know where maybe that's what prompted me to finally check out an on the road novel that came out in February right before the pandemic brought life as we know it to a hard stop Nancy mckinlay's novel constructed out of a series of interlocking stories is called Saint Christopher on Pluto. Note that odd title it summons up I a Catholic saint who was demoted because of questions about his historical veracity and Pluto once a planet but now demoted to a dwarf planet to moded or diminished. Is How you might think of the northeastern Pennsylvania's setting of this novel. Once the area around wilkes-barre boasted industry family farms and coal mines. But in recent times the region has been scarred by unemployment and the OPIOID epidemic in mckinlay's novel to hometown Gals ride around this terrain in vintage. Buick nicknamed big blue. Mary Catherine MK. For Short is a quiet woman who inherited the Buick from her grandmother. Colleen is the madcap troublemaker. In the opening story here colleen cons. Mk into helping her. Commit Insurance Fraud by ditching owned Honda Halfback clunker in a remote ravine. Saint Christopher on Pluto drew me in by its humor but like the best comic fiction it's constructed out of insider social observations observations. That sting as much as they amuse we learn early on that M K in colleen I met in the nineteen sixties when they were students at Our Lady of Perpetual Help Elementary School. They'd lost touch but ran into each other again in late. Midlife both working at the local colleen has a job at the hallmark store and K. Works as a manager at Walden books which over the course of this novel is bought out by borders which is in turn bought out by books million until the entire wheezing mall itself is bought out by foreign investors who planned to gut the space for fracking truck depot. Bossy colleen prides herself on being a do-gooder always ready to push 'EM K. And Big Blue into volunteer work which takes the two white women and this novel on Road trips deep into the less traveled corners of northeast Pennsylvania. Some stories here grow out of the casual relationships. The women formed through their jobs at the mall. For instance a teenager named Tiffany who works at the food court stars in the poignant penultimate story where she runs with. 'em CAYENNE colleen in a Thanksgiving Turkey trot charity race. She psyched because she's got a lead on waitressing job at the Jersey shore and then approaching the Finish Line. She trips and you get the sense that she's never going to make it other stories. Take notice of old timers like the Pumpers. A group of senior citizens who've survived heart attacks and power walk at the mall. They've been left behind as their kids moved away. It's the newer residents of the Wilkes Barre area. Ever who inspire mckinlay's most unexpected weddings of screwball humor to social criticism in a standout story called Navy Dodd?.

"It's a story of principles compromised war-crimes overlooked available now on apple podcasts and all other platforms. My guest is comic Hannah Gadsby and although she vowed to give up comedy in her previous Netflix special in the net. Fortunately she's back with new comedy special. Which is called Douglas? And her first comedy. Special Ninette was in part about growing up in Tasmania. We've she describes as the Bible Belt of Australia and she was growing up gay in not only area where other people who were gay were out so she had no one to talk to about that. But also it was a legal to be homosexual until nineteen ninety-seven. You said that you came from a really large loud family. And I'm thinking while you're like so sensitive to loud noise it must have been hard. Yeah but I used to. I used to spend a Lotta time under the hedge. The beauty of being in a large family for someone on the spectrum though is the sense of place a sense of belonging and a sense of community is is automatic so in many ways I was in it advantage because I never have to head fully formed relationship structures. I had more difficulty once I went out in the world. But you know in a family. You have these things and so the yeah there. Was you know noise and chaos? But there's also you know when you have a large family this routine by necessity and structure by necessity to wrangle so many kids and we're in a small town so there wasn't much flux now existence and so there was a lot of advantages to it and was a time when a kid could just leave the house and be a bit feral just sort of you know spend time outside and talk to myself and you know so. I I was able to negotiate that you are homeless for a while what period of your life was. And why were you home? Once I finished my degree it was a three degree the twenty five years. I didn't know what to do. Then once I left the beats you supposed to hit you know. And then they're like okay. You're off into the world. I was unable to navigate that any sort of external structures and scaffolding. I like to say you know I struggled to fill in forms. Never been able to apply for a job in the traditional form I've always just picked up sort of casual entry level work. And you know the older you get the lists easy that he's you know when you pop resume into a place and the like. Wow so older done so little so I sort of began to drift really badly. You know I worked in a bookshop for a little while and then I was a cinema projectionist and then. I traveled up the north of Australia as work at a an outdoor cinema. Because I you know I had an actual skill that is no longer an actual skill but at the time and from there I found I couldn't actually hold down a job on able to you. Know earn enough money and also navigate just the basic administration of life. I look back on that time. I feel sad is like I didn't understand I. I genuinely needed help. I needed assistance. Do Tribute that to autism. Yeah And so became femme Labor. I lived in a Vino a tent. And then you know basically no fixed address for a couple of years we you sleeping on the street at all. No 'cause I was in the in the country so there's no need to be on the straight. I had a tent and you know and then I drift in and woke on farms and then but I had no safety net. I had no backup and I mean certainly slipped RAF but it was just not on a straight. I'm taking that really literally right that sleep on the streets and I'm like yes I guess but basically I just weren't a lot of streets is what you're saying. Yeah walked out and out a nice spot and pitch the tent and Y- yeah so you had no safety net. Did you have any safety? Not Pat no guess not no no capacity you know grabbed or attacked while you were homeless knots. I Guess Waugh's but not you know because someone broke into my tent. It's at one stage. I sort of drifted into this sort of communal living situation. That turned bad turned bad Yeah what happened? That's a whereas rate. Oh that's turning really bad. That wasn't great to. Did you leave that that community afterwards living situation? No I have no way to go well. That's so awful that you stay with. That's the reality of no choice isn't it? That is yeah. That's really awful. Did the other people know? It's always hard to say you know. People are really incredible at not acknowledging things to the point where they figured that they knew. Well I can kind of see the impulse here to stand on stage and say this happened. This happened like acknowledge it happened. What future did you see for yourself? Then when you're living in a tent and you had no steady job you didn't think you could hold one. I didn't see a future at all. And that's that's trauma. You're absolutely incapable of imagining a future incapable of understanding. What a dream is. But you know you you're obviously. You're like very smart and very perceptive and very articulate. Could you comprehend why somebody who has a smart as you were and as knowledgeable art history degree would feel like you had so little future in front of you so a few options so few opportunities the that that was very always very confusing to me? I didn't understand how I got it all so so wrong You know this is. This is part of the autism situation The until I was diagnosed I could never look back on that part of my life and and make complete sense of I still struggle. And that's a that is also an effective trauma. There's no straight line through trauma So how were you when you were diagnosed terrible at domestic situations thirty six thirty six? That's a long time not to understand what was going on. You know neurologically for you. Yeah Yeah it is. Let me reintroduce you here. If you're just joining us my guest is comic. Hannah Gadsby and her follow up to net has just been released on net flicks and it's called. Douglas. It's her second Netflix. Comedy special. The first won a peabody award and an emmy. We'll be right back. This is fresh air support for NPR and the following message. Come from Doug Doug Go. Do you want the same Internet but more privacy duck duck go can help? They helped millions of people. Like you get privacy online without any tradeoffs with one download. You can search and browse privately. Avoiding trackers duck duck. Go privacy simplified. Let's get back to my interview with Hannah Gadsby. She's a comic whose first comedy special on Netflix Net was described in the New York Times as the most talked about comedy act in years and she vowed to give up comedy in that special but now happily. She's back with new comedy special which is called Douglas and just started streaming on Netflix. So you're an art history major. I assume that means that you really love painting and you know art has a central place in both of your stand up specials in different ways In your you talked about how like the like the the gay pride flag is annoying to you because it's too just like too much color. What was it like for you as an art history major? Oh I love that history that gets it was such a such a perfect way from my brain to learn about the world and understand the world like I get there eventually with reading and comprehension. But I'm slow. I'm really really slow but thorough. We've with images. I seem to get so much. I seem to be able to process an image at a speed and a depth and nuance that account with language and so studying history was just really powerful. Way For me to begin to piece together the puzzle of the world. What made you think that you could Perform comedy funny. Did you think it's funny? I knew how to be funny. I knew how to tell a story. And the way I'd learnt tell a story was to really built the skill to evade the reality of my life and just told a funny story about a moment you know. So He's a funny thing that happens and then I have to tell people about the the actual reality of my life and essentially I entered a comedy competition and it was on a whim. That wasn't this sort of thing you know I've been hoping to do. I did a lot of things on women like off. Try this thing. I'll try that thing. And there's no reason to expect comedy was going to end any better worse than all the other failed attempts at my grasp but life and this is a national competition was held by the Mobin Comedy Festival Melbourne International Comedy Festival. And they run hates all around us. They go into regional towns. And you know. Hold as competitions Actually really wonderful program because it it doesn't dwell on just sort of the cities it could really does go into regional places and so then you know as soon as I I sort of told my I you know. Gio which isn't technically a joke. It was just a few words. I strong together. I think it was the combination of you know. Just me being this completely strange creature up on stage just really made people engage with me and I held the audience in my hand. I didn't know what to do them but I knew that I had them in my hand so it was clear from the very first time I stood on stage. You know I've never heard a microphone before never been a perform. I'd never even been to a comedy show but all of a sudden kind of knew what I was doing. What was it like when you first on stage and realized that you had the power to make people laugh or to make them think or feel moved by what you were saying that you could get the response that you wanted to get It felt like I was connected to the world for the first time. I'd always felt like I. There was a disconnect between May and the rest of the world like you know and this is kind of a common experience with people on the spectrum. You so to feel like an alien being dropped in from outer space and quite connect promptly And being on stage and and making a room full of people you know laugh. Fill fill like a a connection. I hadn't been able to establish in any other environment. So comedy was a great home for you. You could tell stories. You had an audience. You didn't have to have conversations with the audience but a better eventually. You had hecklers because every comic has hecklers. How did you deal with hecklers? I'm not very good at being thrown a like disruption to routine in the early days of Ninette did get really really terrible heckles on the rare occasion from for men who couldn't see it in their own discomfort. You know there were a few times when I would be heckled in very vulnerable moments of that show but that's what also made it so dangerous to perform because you know I make the audience sit in these incredibly painful moments but if people were to break of those moments it was a truly dangerous place for me and when that did happen you know. I didn't react well. I want to get back to how you find loud noise. Sudden noise upsetting. What about the sound of applause? What about the sound of thunderous applause and cheers at the end? Of One of your shows this something this is this you know depends on the Kucic of the room. I don't like performing in say a rock. Then you weather's. It's a shell of a room that they then put chairs in and those chairs can scrape and there's an echo tour applause..

"Colonels and I'm sitting on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial. I level of guard this Thomas Jefferson's Vegetables Dr. I'd like to have the chicken waste very well. Done editing is all all about timing. I tried to get a little bit away from the actual subject. Let's get sick and may sixty with good Anderson. Hey everybody I'm hurry Kabalu filling in this week for Kurt Anderson so I'm a stand up comedian and my favorite special from last year was by far Hannah Gadsby net on net flicks wchs the pride flag a love what it means that is perfect pride wonderful but the flag itself busy. The net starts out a very conventional stand up special. There's just lots of great jokes. It's just six very shatti. Assertive callous stacked on the top of each other no risk for the afternoon in that way even in the face on to express my entity through the metaphor of a map and then over the course of the hour gets a lot more confrontational. It gets more serious as lots of twists and turns. It gets gut wrenching. 'cause she's talking about serious stuff. She's talking about Trauma Violence Homophobia and the nature of comedy itself. Do you understand what self-deprecation means when it comes from somebody who already exists in the margins. It's not humility. It's humiliation. I put myself down in order to speak in order to seek permission to speak and I simply will not do that anymore. Not to myself or anybody who identifies phone net was incredibly funny and poignant and smart it deconstructed the form it was able to challenge people's notion of what stand up is supposed to be her new show. Douglas is just as good the big difference is that there are a ton more jokes and it's also powerful because she's talking about her diagnosis with autism before last summer very few people in the US had ever heard of Hannah Gatsby but she didn't come out of nowhere. Well she kind of comes out of nowhere. I mean she's from Tasmania but she was well known in comedy circles in the UK and Australia before she even wrote in it should be performing hour long shows over a decade and festivals. Melbourne an Edinburgh will every year. I'd run a new show so my first show was my coming out story which is kiss me quick. I'm full of tubes which is candy in Australia. My whole mines played a cruel joke on me. I said let's make this one in the ultimate baby carrying this do and then give absolutely no desire to Mike want. I'm like transform that doesn't fancy driving and then the next show was called the cliff young shuffle which is a long form pace about walking. I walked across England coming off antidepressant Jason Homeland God podiatrist. He openly laughed at my feet as well. I'm glad you went into daughtry. Not Not GonNa College could never written an without those ten years of the shows before and you know with a with a sort of the building blocks that led to that. What was your life like before net so quiet. Were you in Tasmania Nia. I lived in Melbourne now living in little rental. I didn't believe I'd ever be able to afford a homes my own so I decided sided about a year before I wrote a net. I really wanted to garden. I'm just GONNA plant out this rental and so the phone really it was dogs in gardening gardening and t and a lot of alone time. I spent a lot of time alone. I think I was exhausted. I'd been diagnosed with autism so is adjusting back to that new sort of framework of understanding myself I of course diagnosis doesn't come with a change if you just haven't that happened before and that was released. Oh Yeah Oh before it was written. I mean it was pretty much. The show I could write once I understood what was setting me apart because I was always very confused infused. I was like I just don't like there. Was something really deeply wrong with me so I was always to scrambling to get to the starting line of normal and then once I was diagnosed ignores them like a one never can get you know there's this brain situation so I began to look at myself with a lot more empathy not because all my work prior to that was going. I'm sorting out what's wrong with me. Whereas then I'm like. Oh I know what's wrong with me. I know my limits but then I turned and my critical eye on to the world and I'm gone I can also see you'll limits and there is too much hysteria around gender from Uganda normals. You'll the weed. You're a bit hysterical that you're we'd your bid up. You need to get a agenda. Almost Hall Seriously Calmed Down Gender normals get a grip now. I'm in an address. We know it's not do you know what's weird. PINKETT bans on bold babies but then it's also interesting to me that's weird breadth of demographic that really loved in it and that's I think really kind of great to know that like when you think of all the things that I took off as an individual's being in the margins platforming wind which is in the center of Privilege Right Right which is I think what let me get away with it like if I was testing where not traditionally good-looking overweight eight indigenous woman and it wouldn't have happened. Men Net really touched people. I don't think I realize the extent of it. At first. I mean all all my friends were talking about Nana's popping up on facebook constantly but it was only when I saw you on stage presenting at the Emmys when I realized how huge you'd become denies just what jokes especially men arrive fell. That's why I'm presenting alone. This is the point where I can't because I literally gone come from nowhere. In this circle well like it's in the Hollywood situation but all of a sudden. I'm an alien that weld for people know who I am and it's we'd like people I I I've seen on TV only associate as like I went to this party for net flicks and they were people that you moving around just kind of caution as Jodie default day. I'm John stomas get I and then they coming up to me so I'm getting and they seen in it and they want to talk to me and that is he's a really trippy experience like John Stamos. I mean Jessica Fan of Ninette you would not. That's what I mean. John Stamos has seen in twenty cents what he told me but you know people lie. I I WANNA believe on congestion after events. Can we trust the Lao so that's sort of this weird because I'm used to being in a crowd. I can be invisible bowl and I just walked the world guideline. I'm very happy with that then. These people are coming up to me on my own that today which is also good because they they get to lead the conversation and then I'm like I say I am also a fan of your work robot and then so I mean.
Hannah Gadsby's Nanette adds pathos to comedy
"Say very quickly. If you haven't seen Hannah Gatsby a net, Annette flex, go watch it. Go check it out on admit, I put it on a week or so ago, watch the first five or ten minutes and then got caught up with work and wasn't feeling particularly compelled to come back to it just based on that opening. But then I kept reading. People were saying, including our own writers wired, you have to go watch this. You have to watch the so I finished it and to call it a comedy special is a little bit of a mischaracterization because it's not entirely comedy. It really has this amazing nuance and depth to it, and it really reaches this very emotional crescendo where. Gadsby really reveals a lot about some of the traumas it for past and speak openly about some of the basically like socio sort of political issues that we're all dealing with today and social issues really. And and it's just a, it's a, it's a heavy watch, but it's it's good. You should watch it. That's my watch comedians in cars, getting coffee, Jerry Seinfeld thing. I've seen a couple. I don't watch it regularly. There's an episode from this recent season where he, he's talking about young comics and young comment audiences. They want that peso's they want in in their comedy special. They want that sock in the gut, and he's like, but when you play the people who are like thirty five and older and they've got kids and you've got mortgages and they're on their second marriage, they're like, you know what? I'm fine the pay. Those just make me laugh. Yeah, I think it's it depends on what mood urine. Like if you might feel like watching Michelle wolf one night and then another night you're going to watch Ninette and it's going to be a totally different experience. But I actually think it's really wonderful that this comedy genre, especially this one hour special is being redefined in some

"And then I felt like there was a part where I had a press pause and go. I need to go out my friend because now I'm into motion will state and I need a break from it. And I was as opposed to watching a comedy show before going out with my friends and being in a good mood because of it. And I felt that like. You know, it's hard to call it something else besides a comedy special because it's so much the the set up is a comedy special. So I if you called it something else, I don't know what that would be called, but I do think I enjoyed it, but I wish I was a little bit of a stipulation from the type of trailers. And I've seen four. I mean, I because as far as I know, I don't think they were saying it was specifically comedy special. They definitely said Hannah Gadsby comedian in a lot of the, yeah, but I think with a lot of the way it was marketed 'cause it very is is hard to put a pin on exactly what this is because it's definitely one person show style because it does open it up to not just stand up comedy, but there's certainly a lot of that style in there, but it it does kind of move in a way that just really it is. There are a lot of gut punches for lack of better term. So I know there was a Joe. There was some like there was something that you you. It seemed like you might he wanted to jump in on something. Do you. Sorry, we're, we're using check. Service to like the viewer to say that it's not a comedy special seems to have missed the entire point of the stand up, which is her reflecting on her time as a comedian in the format in which she has operated in for decades. Kind of ignores her whole purpose with a standup. So sits bad with me since fab with native say that just because that's her whole thing. And it's, it's like the her entire career kind of like as it was to now culminating to this moment of like really. And I think she does do a really good job of setting up what it's going to be, and it has its moments of levity. But I think with even within like a third of the way through, you can tell where it's going to go. So like if it's not your thing, I think it's one of those things where you just have to go. I'm not going to watch this because I want something that's gonna make me laugh and not something that's serious, but it is still a comedy stand like, she's, she wrote it that way. She sprinkles levity throughout it, but also it. I think to say that comedy only has to be something that's like purely funny and doesn't deal with any serious material. Makes its entire ability to change and create something new within its own format. Limited. Yeah. I could definitely see your point. I mean, I I've definitely gone on record saying things that a lot of comedy shows that are awful word on comedy shows. I don't think transparent is a comedy show. I don't think you know, I didn't think get out with a comedy. I think that for me as a filmmaker. I look at John Russia's, and then when I have a John, I'm watching it for a reason. So I totally understand your perspective on it, and I totally understand her mental her the way she does comedy and the point of an it, miss the point of the special. I understood the point of the special with to simply for me marketing wise and advertising wise. When I'm putting out a product when I when I wanna see a product, the advertising for didn't.

"Of this because i was listening to the new yorker podcast the other day hannah gadsby was on okay and hannah gadsby show was amazing i don't really even have words for it because it was comedy but also like probably one of the most emotionally heart wrenching shows i've seen median right yeah she's an australian comedian and she did a show i don't spoil it i saw the live show i haven't seen the it just came out on netflix i saw the trailer and i got a motion was like i'm going to save this for when i have more time it's incredible i haven't seen the netflix on yet but i it's the same kind of thing and they were interviewing her on this podcast and they were just talking about like so incidentally in the show there is a she discusses like a philosophy of comedy like she's talking about like you built tension and then you surprise them to like to cut the tension right and that's that's just like basically one theory of comedy there's also lots of others but she's talking about that specifically and she does that not because she's necessarily interested in talking about the theory of comedy on stage but she uses that to set up other things in the show right okay without spoiling anything for the listeners she could have written a show she if she wanted it didn't have any of that stuff but like the npr person or the new yorker nick who's the one that wrote that terrible incredible to review that would just like anthony lane that was just like man when i'm having sex with my wife all i can think of as mrs incredible right yeah that was a new york there's like film critic couldn't white his boehner while like the headlines read unlike reductions yes we're so but like they were focusing on that on that part of it as if that was like the main understanding of how comedy works that's the only way to understand and this kind of like middle brow pretension does really like cats at my core like really annoys me because it's not a real thorough into understanding of any kind of intellectual topic rape and yet it's suffices for like dinner parties for people who don't really know much yet i totally agree the the new yorker podcast sucks redneck is not a good podcast host he must be good editor because it's been editor of the new yorker magazine for many of its good years i still think as a magazine like they do some things like better than anybody else does insurance i check for them yeah he does and just terms of in depth investigative journalism they do that really well but i agree there podcast sucks and it's part of this npr sort of conglomeration of podcasts that i agree it's like they get the yeah i don't know exactly it's like they boiled down a intellectual idea into like the dumbest form of it and then just like kind of spit it out for the sake of it being like making people who carry tote bags feel smart like a badge of honor us that that kind of thing to like demean like not really demean other people or to put other people down but like on smarter than you that kind of thing right yeah kind of like it's like maggie haberman kind of like politeness politics all fucking i mean the new york times even this week they battled to the white house like stephen miller was going to be on the daily podcast and they asked specifically to not use the audio of his sort of like unfiltered like rants on immigration and they were like oh okay and they didn't do that and then they just they posted some weird oped today about like the contagion of incivility that is like so just odd of this like you know both sides are really really fond down like a by the wayside now we don't know what to do i don't know where they i don't know where they are anymore to be fair when they did play the audio the first time all animals within a ten beater died community committed it's kind of like a ring type type thing if you hear it a phone call it's his days i'm going to defend the new york times here a cool oh hashtag cool at the hashtag resistance right no just that reporting is a like with maggie haberman she's always thinking about like she has hundreds of anonymous sources who she has to worry about and she has gotten scoops.
