Made Me Laugh

hamish-and-andy

Have you heard of Australian comedy duo Hamish and Andy? My friend Gemma texted me this skit about a new father, and I was laughing out loud…

Then I went down a rabbit hole and watched a dozen more of their videos. My favorites were this one of Hamish acting as a wingman for Andy, and this one of Andy getting a beard of bees. (The latter one struck me in a certain way and I was literally laughing until I cried.)

That’s all. Enjoy. xoxo

    These guys are pretty big in NZ as well. I love Andy….
    I am also a huge fan of Hamish’s wife (beauty guru Zoe Foster-Blake)
    Her and Hamish were single friends that wrote a book together about dating and fell in love… Aw!

  2. OMG if you get Zoe Blake onto your blog sharing her beauty routine all the Aussies and Kiwis would love you even more :D :D :D We love Hamish and Andy!! xx

  3. I’m a Denver girl living permanently in Queensland and listen to them every afternoon! They make my drive home way more enjoyable and I think they are pretty cute. Oh, those Aussies! Xx

  4. Aussie treasures those two!

    But…. I agree with everyone else, you MUST interview Zoe for a beauty story or a parenting story or just about anything. She is hilarious and just an all round awesome girl!!

  5. Dalia says...

    Love these guys! I used to listen to them on the radio every day when I was studying veterinarian medicine in Melbourne Australia. They made me
    laugh every day!

  6. Frances says...

    I used to plug in my portable radio and lie in bed way past my bedtime during high school to listen to their late night show – they kill it! We Aussies love them – they are a perfect mix of wit and warmth.

  7. And all the Aussie readers come out of the woodwork!!
    I’m with everyone else. Hamish & Andy are hilarious and Zoe would be amazing for your Beauty Routine.

  8. Carolyn says...

    Another Australian reader here. Agree with everyone who has said that Hamish’s wife Zoe Foster-Blake is hilarious and they have a cute baby called Sonny.

  9. Julieanne says...

    Another Aussie stopping in to say so glad you found them :-)

  10. KylieO says...

    YES! I’m with the other Aussies, do a Beauty Routine on Zoe Foster-Blake! She is FABULOUS!

  11. Jen says...

    Love the boys. And love Zoe – she is fantastic.

  12. Emma says...

    Love these guys – Andy lives in the building next to mine here in Melbourne! :)

  13. Alex McKellar says...

    As a fellow Aussie I was so excited to see this! They had a thing called “Pants-off Friday” where they just wore underwear for their radio broadcast and encouraged others to do the same – so hilarious. These two are national treasures.

  14. Completely fell down the Hamish & Andy rabbithole. It does not hurt that they’re pretty adorable.

  15. Jess Gerrard says...

    Ah, so cool seeing Hamish & Andy on your website! I’m an Australian reader and we love the boys.
    Love love love your blog – it is my go-to site for a lunch time pick-me-up or dose of inspiration. Keep up the fantastic content :-)

  16. Lauren says...

    Hamish and Andy are HOT!

  17. Ellen says...

    Another Aussie here. Yep, Hamish and Andy are ‘national treasures’ as another commenter wrote. Another upvote for Hamish’s wife Zoe (and their baby, Sonny!). You do a ‘Beauty Routine’ with Zoe. She’s a beauty blogger and she’s fabulously honest and self-deprecating.

  18. KILLED IT!!!! Thank you for making me cry at my desk. Day had been made! That’s all folks!

  19. Tricia says...

    Holy mother of god that bee thing is my WORST nightmare!!! I did manage to laugh through cringing. :-)

  20. Elise says...

    Their daily podcasts are my favourite sound track for walking home from work! Love those guys.

  21. Jenny Rose says...

    Ultimate Baby Wingman. I cried laughing.

  22. Jacqueline Barrantes says...

    hahaha hilarious!

  23. Amy G. says...

    I follow Hamish on instagram, he’s hilarious!!!

  24. Tamara says...

    Yes! These two are definitely national treasures. But I’m with the other Aussies, Zoe Foster-Blake is even more wonderful. So very funny. Her skin care range is some of the best there is! You must check out Go-To as well as Zoe’s Insta.

  25. Mirella says...

    My two favourite things collading! Listening to Hamish & Andy on the way home and then reading Cup of Jo as soon as I get in. So good! And agree with everyone else that you most check out Zoe’s Instagram and Hamish’s personal one too!

  26. I used to watch their show a few years ago when I lived in Australia and I remember them being very funny. There were a few episodes of them taking a road trip through the UK and Ireland in a small caravan (the show was actually called Caravan of Courage), I laughed to tears quite a few times! This makes me want to go and watch their most recent videos.

  27. Melynda says...

    The funniest is when they are in Japan and they go to a restaurant with monkey waiters https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=hWstAme0eQs
    My most favourite video! We love them here in Aus!

  28. Jade says...

    I listen to them on the drive home from work – i more often then not find myself crying laughing!
    They have been such a big part of Australian comedy for well over 10 years now! I’m so glad they are getting recognised overseas!
    Zoe – Hamish’s wife was a beauty editor and has a great book out too!

  29. My husband and I were cracking up watching this! Now we need to watch the rest of their stuff!

  30. Keri says...

    love hamish and andy!! I didn’t know of them until I moved to Aus but I am so glad they are in my life now.
    The wingman one is a favourite of mine as well :)

  31. Clare says...

    Oh these guys *nail* the Aussie sense of humour! We love them over here and glad you found them – welcome to the fun!

  32. Meg says...

    You know what they say, behind every great (funny) man is an even greater (funnier) woman – Zoe Foster Blake

    • Elka says...

      For those that don’t live in Oz, Zoe is married to Hamish. Thus adds context to the comment above

  33. susan says...

    “say that thing again, about having enough sleep”

    So funny, and so true. All of it.

  34. Crystal says...

    Hamish and Andy are national treasures! They’ve been entertaining us for years. They are the type of guys we all want to be mates with. Comedy gold.

  35. Charli says...

    Apparently I am a 10 year old boy because the “Hanging weights on your man bits” episode had me in tears. These guys are great! Thanks for sharing.

  36. Tara says...

    You have to watch their Gap Year videos! They’re such a funny pair.

  37. Stella says...

    Us Aussies know Hamish and Andy well. Their ‘ghosting’ vids are legend. My daughter had the dubious honour of ghosting Andy one day, without his knowing! Score!

    • Katherine says...

      Ghosting the ghoster! That’s awesome!

      Hamish and Andy have been on the scene here for well over a decade so lots of quality to catch up on in the archives for any new US fans.

    • Joanna Goddard says...

      oh my goodness, hilarious! i just watched one and it was so, so hilarious.

    • Jacqui says...

      After the ghosting episodes screened in NZ, I remember schools having to ban it in the playground because it was so popular teachers had trouble getting around without being ghosted. The episodes should be compulsory viewing for any bad day – every time I see them I do the laughing so hard I am gasping thing. Am very impressed with your daughter, Stella.

  38. Keri says...

    I love these guys, but I also love Hamish’s wife Zoe Foster Blake. Her Instagram feed is so, so funny and cute (they have an adorable son) and the website for her skincare line (go-to skincare) is also hilarious. Oh, and that parent fantasy hotline video is GOLD.

    • Joanna Goddard says...

      can’t wait to check out her instagram!

    • Rebecca says...

      I agree, her skincare line is fantastic.

    • Keri says...

      Hamishblakeshotz instagram if you can’t get enough of their chubby baby :)

    • Cherie says...

      Her go-to exfoliating swipeys are fab!

  39. Eenie says...

    Thanks for the introduction! I had not heard of them but was laughing hysterically and will be sure to send to my two nieces who have just had babies!

  40. Ashley says...

    We discovered them while vacationing in Australia. You have to watch their Gap Year tv shows. HILARIOUS!

  41. This is literally the funniest thing ever. I’m over here with my 2 littles dying. Oh how jealous all of my single friends make me sometimes! I wish I knew what sleeping in meant anymore :)

  42. Caroline says...

    Hamish and Andy are the BEST!! You can download their podcast every day on your iPhone, I guarantee it is impossible to be in a bad mood after listening to it- also Jo, you should google Hamish’s wife Zoë Foster-Blake, she has an incredible natural skincare brand called Go-To that I would seriously recommend, particularly the Face Hero face oil (she’s also worth a follow on Instagram purely for pics of their adorable son!)

    PS this is my personal favourite video, I remember watching this when it was on TV and being doubled over with hardcore giggles https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zUkCQo6ECt0

  43. Tears in my eyes and tummy hurting laughter over the bee one – just moved to Australia so hope to see/hear more of these guys!

  44. B says...

    Oh! We LOVE Hamish & Andy in Aus – they’re an ICON! :) so glad you found them and enjoyed! Have you seen their TV series ‘Real Stories’? It’s like a fake current affairs program showing fake news stories and it’s truly hilarious! (Street Accountants is my fave)

  45. Sarah says...

    Yes! We love Hamish and Andy here in Australia- they’re hilarious. Their podcasts are great as well

  46. Oh my gosh yes! Watched this the other night and was dying laughing. I’ve been sending it to all my friends that are new parents. I’m an American living in New Zealand and their show is popular here. Thanks for the links to the other videos – hilarious! I’ll have to make my way through all of them now.

  47. Jen says...

    These two are so funny!

    I used to listen to their podcasts (from their daily radio show) in 2009 ish. They still have a radio show and there is no rhyme or reason to the topic so you can pick any ( I actually prefer their older ones if they are still available for download) and they are sure to be hilarious. Their older videos (like one of them “Competitively Ghosting” are also great).
