Quotes

Hannah Gadsby: Where... where do the quiet gays... go? Where are the quiet gays supposed to go?... the pressure on my people to express our identity and pride through the metaphor of party is very intense. Don't get me wrong. I love the spectacle. I really do but I've never felt compelled to get amongst it. Do you know? I'm a quiet soul. My favorite sound in the whole world is the sound of a teacup finding its place... on a saucer.

A hateful sermon.
2 September 2019 | by carnagath82See all my reviews

30 minutes of bad stand-up and 30 minutes of hateful screaming is the recipe for this. She clearly seperates the two parts, because she is not a good enough comedian to weave them together. The moment you say "men are X" or "women are X", and you are actually serious and not making a joke, you should be disregarded as anyone worth listening to. Because you are too blinded by hatred to realise that generalising for half of the planet's population is just wrong. I would give this a pass if it was actually her farewell as she intended, but no, she will keep at it, because she liked the surprise money too much. I just hope this very mediocre and misguided special doesn't inspire a bunch of young people to come out on stage at a comedy event and just scream their political agendas out, be it left leaning or right leaning, because that would be the real tragedy.
