Hi, I’m Brett Hamil and this is my website. I’m a writer, comedian, cartoonist, talk show host and filmmaker. I contribute columns, cartoons, and reportage to City Arts Magazine and produce political commentary videos and essays for the South Seattle Emerald. I host two political comedy talk shows at Northwest Film Forum, The Seattle Process and The Shadow Council. I also perform standup all over the US and Canada. Seattle Weekly named me Best Comedian of 2017 and dubbed me “the city’s premier political comic.” The Stranger called me “a truly treasured ham” and “Seattle’s closest equivalent to John Oliver.”
I’ve also done copywriting, proofreading, script consultation, and video production for bigwig clients. I’m always looking for more contract work and side gigs!
The purpose of this website is to provide a portal for you to check out the things I do and contact me for bookings, questions, or comments. Feel free to poke around!
