Feb. 20: Ryan Hamilton

Sorry about the false alarm earlier. We had scheduled Dino Archie for tonight but no sooner had I posted the info did I get an e-mail from Dino saying he had to cancel. That's show biz.

I've got a pretty good episode in the can, though, I was saving for a rainy day. Well, here's that rainy day (metaphorically speaking). On Friday I recorded an hour-long interview with Idaho native and New York resident Ryan Hamilton, who was headlining the Comedy Mix this past weekend. You may remember Ryan from two seasons of NBC's Last Comic Standing. Or maybe you read about him in Rolling Stone, where he was named (in a piece titled, appropriately, What's So Funny?) one of five new comics to watch. Or maybe you saw him at the Vancouver comedy festival last fall. Or maybe it was at the Just For Laughs comedy tour.

We sat in his hotel room and talked about his life in comedy, his unique look, comedy competitions, why he performs clean, and his private life. So there you go. Hot off the presses.
