Ryan Hamilton on Conan

Ryan Hamilton knows what he looks like, you guys.

And as a stand-up comedian, Hamilton knows to come out swinging and takes the first shot at himself, and then some, referring to his permanent smile and how it makes him look more like a comedy club logo than an actual comedian. Seeing him do this bit regularly at The Comedy Cellar is an extra-special treat, standing next to that club’s sign onstage. Hamilton also doesn’t drink, and jokes about how his friends sometimes look at him askance — but not for the obvious reason? Great set by Hamilton on Monday night’s Conan. As O’Brien mentioned in the introduction, Hamilton will have a full run of his headlining hour this July at Montreal’s Just For Laughs.

Roll the clip!
