Hannah Gadsby

Hannah Gadsby is an acclaimed and Emmy-award winning speaker, writer, and comedian, and a strong voice in support of neurodiverse individuals. Her solo show Nanette redefined the comedic form, and in her subsequent solo show Douglas, she discussed her autism diagnosis and “[let] the world see the view from [her] brain — one that sees the world differently but with breathtaking clarity.” Hannah is the author of the new book Ten Steps to Nanette and is currently on tour with her new stand up show Body of Work. Through her contributions in the arts and her writing on neurodiversity, Hannah has had a positive impact for neurodiverse individuals across the world, making a significant difference for twice-exceptional students, who, like Hannah, “see the world differently but with breathtaking clarity.”
