James Hamilton

Host: Alex Tsakanikas

Feature Katie Meiners

James Hamilton is an Emmy Award-winning writer, comedian, and producer.  His debut stand-up album will be released this fall with ASpecialThing Records. He is a co-host of the monthly stand-up show, Good Delivery.

James was a Show Writer and voiceover performer with VICE News Tonight. In 2020, James was a writer on the show that won an Emmy for “Outstanding Newscast.” As part of VNT, he wrote and story-edited long-form documentary field pieces, including ones that were nominated for a Peabody Award, a GLAAD award, and a James Beard Award for Media. James pitched, produced, and wrote segments, ranging from graphics-based explainers, field reports, to desk reports.

James was a co-writer for the feature-length documentary, The Neutral Ground (Tribeca Film Festival, POV on PBS, 2021), which has been called “a timely, remarkable, and engaging work of social inquisitiveness.” The film was nominated for an Emmy for Best Historical Documentary and James’ writing was nominated for a 2021 Critics Choice Award for “Best Narration.” He lost to Val Kilmer, which….fair.

James has also written for both seasons of VICE TV’s hybrid news and food show, Counter Space, which was nominated for an Emmy for Outstanding Culinary Series. He wrote intros and monologues for the show’s Emmy-nominated host and was the writer for the segment, “Table Steaks” which was nominated for an Emmy in the category of “Outstanding Short Feature in a Newscast.”

James has performed around the country as a stand-up comedian and storyteller. He has been featured on The Moth Radio Hour and, in 2018, won the Moth NYC GrandSlam Championship. He has performed at many of North America’s top comedy festivals, including San Francisco's Sketch Fest, Toronto Sketchfest, Brooklyn Comedy Festival, and Moontower Comedy and Oddity Festival.
