Fee Range: E

Hamish's adventure into the world of comedy began when he began broadcasting a no-budget show called Radio Karate with friend Andy Lee. Although they only had an audience of about 8000 people, one fan was Guy Rundle - the executive producer of I'm Spartacus, an independent comedy production company -who saw something in their "charm and invention".

After only 6 half-hour episodes of Radio Karate, Hamish and Andy were offered their own sketch comedy series on Channel Seven.

Since then, Hamish (sometimes with, sometimes without Andy) has had radio spots hosting the Almost Midday show on Fox FM, and appeared on various television shows including Spicks and Specks, Australia's Brainiest Comedian, and Joker Poker - where comedians go head to head in Texas Hold 'em (Hamish was eliminated first).

In September of 2006 the guys returned to commercial television with their own mocumentary style show “Real Stories” for Network 10. The show was a ratings success and is now available on DVD.

Their chemistry, cleverness and unique comedic style have earned them broad appeal with a national market. They have also received excellent reviews for everything they have done in the corporate arena and continue to be in high demand.
