These two are perhaps my best discovery of the year. Ham and Ando are funny. So funny in fact, that as I’ve been listening to their podcast in my car, I’ve been laughing so much that other drivers have thrown me worried looks. It’s a good job I do a lot of my driving these days in the dark evenings of winter.
A little bit about the boys: They have a radio show which is syndicated across Australia. They are also on a show called Rove which is like Conan, but better. Mostly, Hamish and Andy just do stuff that lads do best, but they are so witty with it. Hamish is obvious a student of the Office and is therefore someone who I desperately want to be mates with. We have the same sense of humour and the fact that we are of a similar age makes me green with envy, these guys are getting paid to have fun and be themselves.
This is the kind of thing they do:
A couple of weeks ago, they drove across Australia from Melbourne to Darwin ‘hugging the country’. Their podcasts from the fortnight were hilarious. Among other adventures, they went UFO spotting, swan in crocodile infested rivers, tried to spot 50 wild camels and drank goats milk straight from the goat.
This week they released a CD on the same day as Britney’s Circus. The next day, Hamish got pneumonia. The boys think Britney poisoned Hamish so they declared war, I can't wait to see how it ends.
