Former Austin resident Jim Hamilton made his network television debut this week on NBC’s Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. Now Los Angeles-based, Hamilton is a four-time finalist in Cap City’s Funniest Person in Austin contest, he’s appeared on Comedy Central’s Premium Blend, and he recently released his well-received debut album, “Poems About The Ocean” on AST Records. Paste magazine just published a feature on the rising comic (and that article can be viewed by signing up for a free trial). Hamilton trades in brutally dark self-deprecation, clever observations, and unabashed pun-y wordplay. His line “Spoiler Alert: The bell tolls for thee!” may not garner the Big Laugh from audiences but it’s a classic time-release nugget as far as Comedy Moontower is concerned. Oh, and hey, thanks for your concern. We kid. Check out Jim below (and note that the clip may take longer than usual to load-n-buffer for reasons unknown).
