7 Comedians to Watch If You Loved Hannah Gadsby’s ‘Nanette’

Slide 1 / 8
If you've paid attention to pop culture at all in the last few weeks, chances are you've heard of, and very likely seen, comedian Hannah Gadsby's Netflix special, Nanette. The standup set appeared on the streaming service in June with little to no fanfare but has caught on like wildfire since. Its biting social commentary on the ongoing marginalization of the LGBTQ+ community and its pivot from standard punchlines to painful, personal storytelling is being lauded as a new frontier in modern standup. Of course, Gadsby isn't the only comedian offering additional representation of the LGBTQ+ perspective or skewering the societal expectations on women. Here are seven other people and specials you might want to check out if you loved Nanette. (Photos via Scott Dudelson/Getty Images + Netflix/Jackson Davis + Netflix)
