Netflix comedy special, equal parts comedy and anger.  Hannah is a "non-gender conforming" lesbian, and her anger at being marginalized is vivid.

It's a moving and ultimately redemptive journey... but harrowing, if you're a straight white man.

Watching it a second time.  I think this is only the second time I've watched a standup routine twice.

Second time through I can see how carefully written it is.  How she sets up situations to pay off much later in the show.  How she uses the narrative to build up tension, release the tension, build it up again, release it again, until you begin to think this will be her style.

Then wham.  She hits you with the payoff, the real life facts, the truth about being a non-gender-conforming lesbian.  Wham.

It hits you like a sledge.

As it is intended.

Very clever it is.
