Ryan Hamilton expertly uses his bright shining, natural smile as a great foil for which his comedy can play off of.
In fact, the juxtaposition of his self-deprecating persona and that smile are the jumping off point and underlying thread for the meticulously crafted hour, Happy Face, which just started streaming on Netflix this week.
In many ways, this special is a great example of classical stand-up, if you can conjure up such a thing in your mind, with structure, rhythm, stage presence, execution all working together seamlessly.
As mentioned above, Ryan Hamilton: Happy Face is now streaming on Netflix.
