Andrew Hamilton

In 2021, Andrew spent four months in two of Sydney’s maximum-security prisons for the commercial supply of psychedelic drugs.

While incarcerated, Andrew began noticing the transportive power of laughter. After all, if a joke can make you forget you’re in prison, what else can it do?

Upon his release, Andrew took up stand-up comedy, initially under strict bail conditions where his parents had to come with him to shows, and he had to be home in time for curfew.

Since then, Andrew has become a regular in Sydney comedy clubs, recently completing sold out shows at Sydney Comedy Festival, and Melbourne International Comedy Festival.

Andrew’s critically acclaimed debut solo show, “Jokes About the Time I Went to Prison”, earned him a nomination for Best Newcomer in Melbourne.
