With an immediate comic charisma and a sharp, personable writing style, Ryan is endearing comedy lovers, and his future is bright. Named one of Rolling Stone’s Five Comics to Watch with standout appearances on Conan, Last Comic Standing, Comedy Central, and Showtime, he’s establishing himself as one of the nation’s favorite stand-ups.
He’s impressed industry insiders by racking up a remarkable number of national competition wins and festival appearances, including winning The Great American Comedy Festival and Sierra Mist’s America’s Next Great Comic Search. He’s also a regular performer at the Montreal Just For Laughs Comedy Festival including a gala performance with The Muppets as well as being named the winner and MVP of the Just For Laughs Comedy Leagues.
He’s often lauded for being a clean comedian, although his audiences span a broad spectrum. Wrote one reviewer, “His stories and delivery are so funny, it doesn’t even cross your mind that he works completely clean. Not that there’s anything wrong with that. When he talks about his experience skydiving or taking a hot-air-balloon ride, you’re too busy laughing to notice he’s not like the others.” (from Vancouver Georgia Straight “For Comic Ryan Hamilton Getting Clean Laughs Just Comes Naturally”)
Growing up in Idaho and making his home in New York City he’s far from his small-town roots, but the contrast suits him. He’s currently headlining top comedy clubs across the country building a loyal following of enthusiastic fans.
