Ryan Hamilton is a rapidly-rising comedian who was born and raised in Idaho and is making his mark on comedy all over the world. He's coming to Portland in two weeks, performing at the State Theatre on Friday, October 18th.

After being named one of Rolling Stone's Five Comics to Watch, having performed on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Conan, The Late Late Show, Last Comic Standing, Comedy Central, and Showtime, and having released his Netflix special Happy Face just two years ago, Ryan has already garnered quite the following and will undoubtedly become a household name before long.

His comedy is clean, which is relatively rare these days, and as a result his fan base is hugely varied. He's performed in Montreal at Just for Laughs and The Muppets Gala, along with several overseas performances on TV and at the Sydney Opera House International Comedy Gala. He is adored by comedians Drew Carey, Gad Elmaleh, and Jerry Seinfeld, with whom he tours often.

Needless to say, Ryan Hamilton is one of those comedians you want to get to know now so in twenty years you can brag to your kids that you saw him in the State Theatre before he was insanely famous. Tickets are still available; mark your calendar and grab 'em while you can!
