Sharp as a knife, genius, surprising, balanced and you can easily add more superlatives: The international press is excited since Netflix is broadcasting Gadsby's show Nanette, and so are we.

'I’ve been a professional comic for 30 years. I’ve been studying comedy for even longer. I thought I had seen everything … until I watched Nanette,' tweeted comedian Kathy Griffin. 'I was blown away. I urge you to watch it ASAP – one hour and it’ll change your life.'
