Hamish and Andy

Postby kipples » Fri Jan 21, 2011 2:03 pm

I'm not sure if "Conchords Cohorts" is the right section but I just had to start a thread about them after reading the Hamish and Andy radio show article on wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hamish_%26 ... io_show%29 I was laughing so hard at some of the antics they got up I can only imagine how funny it would have been to actually hear it as it happened.

I've been watching a lot of their videos as well. So far this is my favourite one

I've been watching their videos too. I hadn't seen that one. :lol: I like watching them go ghosting.

Yay for a Hamish & Andy thread! Thanks for creating one, kipples and yes, this is the right place for it. :D

I first got into Hamish and Andy a few years ago cos they work with and are good friends with two of my favourite comedians, Chris Lilley and Adam Hills. I know you're also fan of Summer Heights High, kipples so I could send you a link to an interview H&A had with Chris Lilley that I recorded back in 2008 from one of their radio shows for Sorry Ranga Day if you want (and anyone else who's interested). It's hilarious! :lol: Also, whilst they were doing the Caravan of Courage for Great Britain and Ireland, they had a radio show on Absolute Radio UK and I'd really recommend that you listen to those podcasts which are available for free on iTunes (well on iTunesUK at least). :D

There are so many funny clips to mention. Both of the clips posted so far are amongst my faves too!
Another funny clip:

Ya kipples! I've been doing the same- they're all new to me and sooooo funny! Ghosting and speed-ghosting, lol! (Near the end.) I about peed my pants!


And he's so great on Thank God You're Here! :lol:

They tried to replicate that show here but it flopped...I know Dave Foley was involved but I don't recall who hosted it or anythgin else, really.

The Gangaroos...(I can't believe they didn't get shot...lol)

Venus, I'd love any links you have thanks.
I tried watching TGYH but I don't think it's my cup of tea, but I do finally get the famous line that Mr G gives Summer Heights High.

The Gangaroos was new to me and bloody hilarious :lol: I'm surprised they got away with it too.

A few of my new favourite vids:

4.20, one of the most heartbreaking and sweetest moments ever

So funny! And I agree...that 1 scene was heartbreaking. He definitely had it harder than Hamish. And the gorilla suit stunt....my throat hurts from laughing!

I'd never seen Real Stories before, :lol: I see I could spend the entire day watching these guys! :D Who's the "newswoman?"

Here's a wee taster of Hamish's Kiwi accent. I really, really like Andys' though :D

On wikipedia it says "It was hosted by Jennifer Adams, a former Seven Network reporter." She's very good for the tiny part she plays.

I'm having a bit of an excitement overload right now!

I'm having my usual bout of insomnia but this has givin me the chance to listen to an actual live Hamish&Andy show. Just caught the start of the second hour. Guess where they'll be broadcasting from next week? New Zealand :D

Me thinks I'll be having another sleepless night next Thursday :nod:

They've also lauched their new website http://www.hamishandandy.com

:rolls:
That 'water wastage' vid was hilarious! :lol:
They got the accent COMPLETELY wrong of course... *cough*

You know... *ponders*... I used to go to Uni with the guy Hamish dobbed in. :hrm:
Hmmm... I wonder if he has Hamish's contact details (who, of course, has Bret's!)...
*ponders sneakiness*
No, I wouldn't dare. :chick:
AND I've another potential connection through a workmate of mine, who's ex-boyfriend is friends with Nigel from WIUO, who of course has Bret's number...

NZ is a such a small country that '7 degress of separation' is rarely more than 2 or 3! :lol:
Ahh, so close, but yet so far!

Oh... :topic:

Great H, you can listen to their radio show here for live streaming and you can also download their podcasts, or subscribing to the show as a podcast on iTunes etc on their website. :)

I explored their new site before I went to bed last night, looking great! I just listened to their latest podcast. Haha, love these guys! Poor Hamish getting quite a lot of stick for gaining a bit of weight. ;) Can't wait for their show in NZ next week although I won't be able to listen live as I have an early start but I will definitely tune in to the podcast. Wouldn't it be great if they had Bret as a guest? :pray:

Love the Welcome video too! :lol:

The website is fabulous! The animations made to go with previous podcasts are hilarious...I got stcuk there for quite a while. :)

I think Hamish looks wonderful- he certainly doesn't look "fat" to me. He's just not quite as lean as he was before.

Ah, Great H, you have some self-control! I'd use those contacts and just see what happens. :D

I LOVE this idea....don't know if it'll work- sound as if it'll be quite painful if it does- but I like the idea!
