Maybe it’s not all that noteworthy to get a Netflix special, but they don’t just hand them out to any comic with footage, although sometimes it seems that way. Hamilton’s, suitably titled Happy Face, given his perpetual grin, happens to be one of the really good ones. That will come as no surprise if you’ve seen him in person at the Comedy MIX here over the years, or in one of his many late-night talk-show sets. But because of the special, not to mention recent performances with Jerry Seinfeld and Gad Elmaleh at Carnegie Hall, more fans are coming to know of this singular talent—and no doubt will turn out in droves at his two JFL NorthWest gigs. And if this is the first you’re hearing of him, get on it!
Ryan Hamilton is at the Rio Theatre Friday and Saturday (March 2 and 3) at 7 p.m.
