    Took the time to watch Ryan. I had tears running down my face I was laughing so hard. 100% recommendation and 5 stars! So worth it. Hope he goes on to having his on sit-com.

    “Stand-up comedian Ryan Hamilton, an Idaho native and BYU alumnus, is featured in a new Netflix comedy special, ‘Happy Face’ . … During the Netflix special, Hamilton recounted[,] ‘One day, I found myself crowded on a boat … on the way to the Statue of Liberty . … I don’t even know what they’re doing, but 10 minutes in, all I could think was, … “I gotta get [out] of this boat and get a job and feed my family, you know?’ he joked.”

    It is no laughing matter that a promise was made and not kept:

    "Give me your tired, your poor,
    Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
    The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
    Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me,
    I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”

    Thanks for the tip. Just watched him. Great comedy set. Very diverse and funny. Made fun of New Yorkers and they loved it. Talented. Clean.
