Hamish Blake…

Hamish Blake is a nationally beloved and highly versatile performer, excelling in radio, television and film. In 2012 Hamish was awarded the Gold Logie as the most popular talent on Australian television.

Hamish's radio and television presenting career has developed very much in tandem with his performing partner and close friend Andy Lee. After meeting at university and commencing their careers on radio in the early noughties, Hamish and Andy rose to unparalleled success, becoming the highest rating radio program in Australian history, reaching around 2.5 million listeners each week.

In 2011 Hamish and Andy turned their hand to other projects, this time entertaining television audiences with a stream of successful seasons of their global GAP YEAR expeditions, airing on the Nine Network. The show featured the boys' escapades in New York, the UK, Asia, South America, India, New Zealand and Europe, earning three Silver Logies for the show and a Silver and Gold Logie for Hamish personally.

In June 2015, Hamish and Andy made their highly anticipated return to the HIT Radio network, once again hosting their top rating weekday national Drive show.

As a television actor, Hamish has featured in the ABC comedy TWENTY SOMETHING and the Seven Network's ratings blockbuster MOLLY. Film-wise, he co- starred in his first feature film with Bret McKenzie (FLIGHT OF THE CONCHORDS) in TWO LITTLE BOYS, which was shot in New Zealand. 2015 saw Hamish play alongside Portia de Rossi in Robyn Butler and Wayne Hope's feature film NOW ADD HONEY.

Hamish has also appeared as a guest performer on a variety of other Australian television series, including HAVE YOU BEEN PAYING ATTENTION, SPICKS AND SPECKS, THANK GOD YOU'RE HERE, OPEN SLATHER, AUSTRALIA'S BRAINIEST COMEDIAN, THE LIBRARIANS, THE PANEL, ROVE, TALKIN' 'BOUT YOUR GENERATION, THE PROJECT and THE FOOTY SHOW. He has also featured in the British version of THANK GOD YOU'RE HERE and the hilarious GRAHAM NORTON SHOW.
