After being named one of Rolling Stone’s "Five Comics to Watch," LDS comedian Ryan Hamilton will be featured on a Netflix’s original stand-up comedy special on August 29, performing a one-hour routine called “Happy Face."
Hamilton is known for his clean sense of humor and has appeared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Conan, The Late Late Show, Last Comic Standing, Comedy Central, and Showtime. He has won awards for his comedy at The Great American Comedy Festival and Sierra Mist’s America’s Next Great Comic Search and even opened for the legendary comedian, Jerry Seinfeld.
Check out some highlights of his hilarious comedy:
Of working as a comedian, Hamilton told The Georgia Straight that it hasn't been a problem living the lifestyle of a comedian while also maintaining his beliefs.
“People always say, 'Is it hard to live in that environment?’ But it’s not for me,” he said. “Comics come from so many different backgrounds that you can connect with a comic if you’re funny. It’s more about being funny than where you come from or what you believe. So I never really feel uncomfortable, especially around comics, in that environment, because you all have the one thing in common, which is comedy.”
