Justin Hamilton

Justin Hamilton has carved his own path to success as a comic while maintaining his unique voice within the Australian Comedy scene. From his humble beginnings in Adelaide, to a household name from Triple M breakfast with Charlie Pickering and a popular reoccurring role as ‘Biscuit’ on the ABC, Justin can’t stand still.

He has written and performed on nearly every Australian comedy show, from Spicks ‘n Specks and Rove Live and written and performed over 16 solo festival shows where most comics average about 3 in a career. Not content with only writing stand-up and television, Justin also wrote a play “Goodbye Ruby Tuesday” in 2009 which was liked by both serious theatre critics, The Australian Theatre Review, and UK comedy review site Chortle (as well as some random internet bloggers).

Justin is quick witted, fun, intelligent and above all, a comedy Juggernaut.

Sam began performing standup comedy at the famous (at the time) Harold Park Hotel when he was 16, getting his first paid gig at 17. He has since been runner-up in the Raw Comedy National Final, nominated for Best Emerging Comic at the Adelaide Fringe, and for both Best Newcomer and the Piece of Wood Awards at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival. Luckily, he’s never actually won anything, so this mild success never went to his head.

He has supported the likes of Wil Anderson, Dave Hughes, and Arj Barker amongst others, and appeared often on TV, radio and in comedy festival shows around the country.

Sam’s television writing credits include the popular children’s sketch show ‘You’re Skitting Me’, as well as ‘The Big Bite’, ‘The Mansion’ and ‘The Ronnie Johns Half Hour’. He was a contributing writer and performer on ‘Stand-up! Australia’, and a staff writer on ‘Rove’.

He is also the author of 10 books and released the card game Bedlam, which was successfully funded through kickstarter and now commercially available.
