Andrew Hamilton

"Jokes about the time I went to Prison"

Shows over 18 only!
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

A-List in association with Junkyard Artists presents: In 2021, Andrew spent four months in two of Sydney’s maximum security prisons for the supply of psychedelic drugs. He had a great time. Best Newcomer Nominee – Melbourne International Comedy Festival, 2023 ★★★★ “Knack for a ripping anecdote” – The Age “Fascinating and unique” – Chortle “One to watch” – NSW Police
