Hannah Gadsby Just Won The Emmys With This Hilarious Skit

Hannah Gadsby has got us thinking about jokes again

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.

Viewers delighted by Gadsby's 90-second presence on the stage and suggested she should be presenting the whole show. It was a telling moment of television for Gadsby, who after years of abuse and mental health struggles, is finally being embraced as a shining light on the world stage.

"It is just jokes, but what are jokes these days?" Especially not men! Am I right, fellas?

The victor, Stephen Daldry for The Crown, was not in attendance which led to unintentional comedy as Gadsby awkwardly exited the stage. Gadsby said. "We don't know".

"Probably because of me". "So I think I just leave now, and that's ..."


Her monologue was so well received that some Twitter users said it was the highlight of the show.

"This is ... not normal?" she said.

Watch the clip above, because, as always, Gadsby's delivery is what really sells this.

"Move to restart this telecast with Hannah Gadsby hosting?" echoed The Hollywood Reporter television critic Daniel Fienberg. That's why I'm presenting alone, ' Hannah Gadsby joked during her brief but much talked about appearance at the 2018 Emmy awards.

Gadsby's appearance also won her new fans.
