Hannah Gadsby: Arts Clown
Hannah Gadsby presents a stand-up show based on her successful one-woman comedy art shows
- BBC Radio 4
- 4 (1 series)
- Hannah Gadsby and John Lloyd
- Hannah Gadsby
- Claire Jones
Each comedy lecture focuses on a 'masterpiece' from a particular era.
Born in Tasmania, Hannah's first artistic encounters were through books. These taught her the language of art appreciation but also legitimised her desire to look at female nudes. This was just as well, as Hannah realised in her teens that she was gay even though homosexuality was illegal in her homeland at the time.
Hannah Gadsby is assisted in this series by her very own Quotebot, who sounds remarkably like comedy legend and all-round boffin John Lloyd, who has been inputted with every quote that's ever been written about art.
