Comedian Hannah Gadsby won best show at Edinburgh Festival. This is an extremely prestigious award coveted by every comedian on the globe. And guess what, she started out as one of Mandy Nolan’s comedy students. The world recognized Hannah Gadsby did her first gig at the Byron Services Club after an adult community education course. For teacher Mandy Nolan this was an amazing result. ‘You always want people you have taught to do well’ says Nolan 'but Hannah’s accomplishments are off the charts.'
While Nolan believes Gadsby always had what it takes to be a stand up comedian, if she hadn’t done the course perhaps she would never have known. 'I often think of Hannah and wonder whether she would have even done comedy if she hadn’t had access to a comedy course. The whole group thing makes doing something as scary as comedy feel a lot more accessible and less intimidating, as you share the fear!' says Nolan. ‘And I teach the fundamentals that can take a long time to work out on the circuit if you are trying to do it without instruction.’
