SALT LAKE CITY – Local comedian Ryan Hamilton has postponed many of his shows, including one in Salt Lake City this weekend, after he was hit by a bus.
The BYU alumnus, who was most recently featured on the Netflix original stand-up comedy show, "Happy Face," made the announcement to his social media accounts Monday. In his post, he expressed his apologies for having to postpone his shows, and gave an update on his condition.
"I am sorry to say I have to move some upcoming shows as I was in an accident," Hamilton said. "I was hit as a pedestrian in a crosswalk by a shuttle bus. I have a compound-fractured arm that required surgery, seven broken ribs and a punctured, collapsed lung."
"I'm also grateful for my fans. I understand you may be disappointed, as I am, especially regarding Salt Lake City this weekend. I know you may have had tickets for close to two years and made plans that are difficult to change. Please know this is a huge blow to me and I am very sorry for the effects it will have on all of you. I am working hard and looking forward to being back as soon as I can give you the show you deserve."
Hamilton said that he was headed to Idaho to be with family as he recovers from his injuries.
The show set for this weekend has been moved to June 24-25, according to Hamilton's website.
"Your tickets and seats will move automatically," the website states. "If you had Saturday early show, for example, you will be moved to Saturday early. Refunds are also available until Feb. 25, by calling the box office."
