After meeting whilst studying at University over 10 years ago now, these two talented entertainers/ writers/ comedians have become Australia’s most popular media performers.
Since commencing their careers on radio “Hamish and Andy” have continued their rise to unparalleled success with listeners becoming the highest rating radio program in Australian history. Their national drive show, reached around 2.5million listeners each week and held that audience for an extraordinary 4 years, before they retired from the drive slot in 2011 to pursue other media ambitions.
With a desire to establish their careers on TV, they continued to entertain audiences with their “Gap Year” shows from New York, UK, Asia and South America as well as eventful expeditions to India, New Zealand and Europe. The programs were so popular that in 2012 Hamish won a Gold Logie. He said he could never have won that without his partner Andy. Last year the boys completed “Hamish and Andy’s Asian Gap Year” gaining high ratings and much applause from the Australian viewing audience.
Together with mainstream radio and TV, they both continue to hold comedic reign with their podcasts. Recently topping the iTunes charts as the #1 Australian radio podcast, averaging 240,000 downloads a month. In 2008 “Hamish and Andy” released their “Unessential Listening” CD that went platinum selling well over 100,000 copies! In 2010 they released a second CD to great acclaim; “Celebrating Over 50 Glorious Years”.
This year “Hamish and Andy” are broadcasting their radio show “Hamish and Andy’s Happy Hour” every weekday between 3pm and 4pm on the 2Day Network. As expected their popularity as radio broadcasters continues.
The guys receive excellent reviews for everything they do in the corporate arena. They continue to be in very high demand as Australia’s most popular talent and have attracted huge international interest.
