GET UPDATES FROM Stephen Hamilton
Stephen Hamilton is a Glasgow-born comedian, writer, and published author. The funny Scotsman has spent several years writing and performing comedy as well as writing for and co-writing with other comedians worldwide.

He is currently the comedy writer and editor at Dafty News:

He said of comedy: “Comedy doesn’t always need to be of a high quality and standard. Just perform it in front of an audience who have a very low opinion of themselves and an even lower self-esteem; and who are clearly suffering from a multitude of personal issues and carrying a lot of life’s baggage. They’ll laugh at anything – they have to.”

Stephen lists his influences as George Carlin, Bill Hicks, Sam Kinison and Doug Stanhope.

12. The World Cup was on and two things happened. Before I knew it I'd missed the deadline. My budgie was sick. He chewed on the only pen I had in the house and he died of ink poison. I didn't have anything to put him in for his burial...

Comedians live from material and the material, in most parts, comes from people, people-watching and people's behaviour.

Basically, what I'm saying is: idiot- f***wet-blowhard-c**t--observation.

Let's face it; we've all hammered that 'douche bag', the 'asshole' and the absolute waster in society.

Why? Because they deserve it. No, they are not...

The Language of a Journalist: Top Five Lines

(0) Comments | Posted 11 July 2014 | (17:26)

I purposely waited until after Easter - well after Easter - to unleash my reasons why the big man is not coming back.
