Hannah Gadsby has revealed that her latest stand-up show will be called Body of Work.

The Nanette star only occurs in Australia and New Zealand, as the Covid-19 pandemic has limited travel and mass gatherings in other countries.

The Emmy Award-winning comic, from Tasmania, captioned the post: ‘I’d like to introduce you all to Jenney Shamash.
‘She is an extraordinary producer. She is very funny and is very talented in telling facts. It is a sight to behold.
‘We got married in January and we are very happy with it. For the record: this is me stumbling.
‘I have very positive feelings. This is a fun story. My heart was grateful to everyone who voted for marriage equality. ‘

Hannah’s reference to ‘voting for marriage equality’ suggests that she and Jenney get married in Australia, which legalized same-sex marriage in December 2017 after citizens voted overwhelmingly in favor of the motion in a poll by mail.
Jenney was a producer on Gadsby’s comedy special Douglas, the sequel to her breakthrough Netflix hit Nanette.
The show, which is named after one of Hannah’s beloved dogs, was filmed in Los Angeles in February.
According to the show’s synopsis, Hannah took Douglas “for a walk around the planet, ending in Los Angeles, and recorded her second stand-up special.”
Douglas was nominated for two Primetime Emmys in 2020.
Hannah won an Emmy for Outstanding Writing for a Variety Special and a prestigious Peabody award in 2019, both for Nanette.
