Hannah Gadsby: 'This is not normal', Emmy Awards - 2018

Ah this is … this is …this is not normal.

The world has gone a bit crazy.

For somebody like me, a nobody from nowhere, gets this sweet gig. Free suit. New boots.

Just because I don’t like men! It’s just …

That’s a joke, of course, just a joke fellas, calm down, hashtag not all men, but a lot of them.

Um … it is just jokes, but what are jokes these days? We don’t know, nobody knows what jokes are.

Another speech? Try Steve Martin’s tribute to Gene Kelly, American Film Institute Life Achievement special, 1985.

“Gene said, ‘But Steve, what’ll I do when I get to the lamppost?’

I said, ‘swing around it a couple of time, make it like a big deal.’”
