Ryan Hamilton is, to borrow an expression from fellow comedian Jackie Kashian, one of the golden retrievers of comedy; everyone’s always glad to see him. That is even truer these days in what can sometimes be a toxic climate.

“I like people to come out of the show feeling good no matter what we talk about,” Hamilton says.

That usually involves the odd and silly things that happen to him on a day-to-day basis. Hamilton’s profile has been boosted this past year by his well-received Netflix special, Happy Face.

“I feel these specials are great because that’s really the best way to experience comedy,” he says. “You want to be able to entertain people for an hour with a set that ebbs and flows. That’s really the highest level of comedy to me.”

7 and 10 p.m. Dec. 31. $25-$55. Funny Bone Liberty, 7518 Bales St., Liberty Township,
