Hannah Gadsby steals the show at the Emmys

Hannah Gadsby has got us thinking about jokes again

Hannah Gadsby is a name you may have heard a lot recently as her Netflix stand-up special "Nanette" has taken the world by storm thanks to the timely observations of the Australian comedian. We don't know. Nobody knows what jokes are, especially not men.

A delight in an often lacklustre Emmys, Australian comedian Hannah Gadsby pretty much stole the show on Monday with her brilliantly dry, but very amusing bit while handing out the Outstanding Director for a Drama Series award. She presented alone, rather in the typical pair, and her time on stage was, hands down, the funniest few minutes of the night.

The victor, Stephen Daldry for The Crown, was not in attendance which led to unintentional comedy as Gadsby awkwardly exited the stage.

"Nobody knows what jokes are".

"Probably because of me".

Since the release of her Netflix special, Gadsby said she has been on the receiving end of criticism of men who don't think she is amusing. "So I think I just leave now, and that's ..." Some were even calling for Gadsby to host the show next year.

Che professed to not have watched Gadsby's Nanette although he made a series of comments via Instagram stories indirectly criticising the style of comedy the stand-up show presents, as Vulture reported.

And after the event, Gadsby also palled around with history-making nominee and early-leaver Sandra Oh.
