After meeting at university seven years ago, these two talented comedians have become Australia's most popular media performers.
Hamish and Andy's story reads as one accomplishment after another. From hosting student radio, the duo was swept up by Fox FM for The Almost Midday Show, where their popularity soon promoted them to the drive slot on Fox in 2006 hosting their own show, Hamish and Andy.
After just five weeks on air, Hamish and Andy had unparalleled success with listeners, becoming the highest-rating radio program in Australian history with approximately 2.5 million listeners nationally each week day, and holding this audience for four years.
In 2011 Hamish and Andy continued to entertain audiences, leaping off with a gap year in New York. Their adventures were broadcast in 10 episodes of Hamish and Andy’s Gap Year on the Nine Network.
Hamish and Andy continue to hold comedic reign over Australia with their weekly podcasts recently topping the iTunes chart as the number 1 Australian Radio Podcast, averaging 240,000 downloads a month. Their radio show, now broadcasting each Friday, is syndicated to regional stations around Australia, New Zealand and Dubai.
In 2008 Hamish and Andy released their Unessential Listening CD, which went platinum and sold an unprecedented and record breaking 100,000+ copies. In 2010 they released a second CD to great acclaim: Celebrating over 50 Glorious Years.
Their chemistry, cleverness and unique comedic style have earned them broad appeal with a national and overseas market. They receive excellent reviews for everything they do in the corporate arena, and continue to be in high demand as two of Australia's most popular talents.

- Both Hamish & Andy were easy to deal with prior to and at the event. They worked well to the brief and were incredibly entertaining.
"Saxtons are always available to clarify any issue I might have had and always friendly and professional in their manner. I have always had professional advice from the bureau and as I always run on a very limited budget Nina and Holly have always tried to get me the best speaker for our needs and budget."
