• Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

Hamish Blake and Andy Lee are an Australian Comedy Duo who, while most famous for their radio shows, have also dabbled in television; the two are something of an ubiquitous force in Australian media, regularly making guest spots on panel shows and the like. Their most famous effort is The Hamish & Andy Show, a weekly (daily until 2011) afternoon radio program on the Today Network. After several years of doing television specials on Network Ten, the Nine Network signed a two-year television deal with the duo from 2011 onward; the first related production was Hamish & Andy's Gap Year, telling of their experiences in New York (during which they somehow managed to interview Hillary Clinton).

The duo have a joint Twitter account.

Hamish and Andy provides examples of the following tropes:
  • Ascended Extra: Cackling Jack, who allegedly started out on work experience, is now pretty much the third member of the comedy duo. Though there are several behind-the-scenes guys who are more important then him, he appears on mic more then any one else other then Hamish and Andy.
  • But Not Too Evil: During a sketch about the idea about making a new version of Google Maps called Google Treasure Maps that would be tailored specifically for pirates. One of the pirates mentioned his intention of using the map to find a port were he could pillage and “inappropriately touch” women.
  • "El Niño" Is Spanish for "The Nino": "El Paso is Spanish for the Paso."
  • Golden Snitch: A game called Random John, in which a random phone number is dialed. If the person who answers the phone is called “John Johnson”, the caller gets 50 "john points", making it something of a golden snitch. However, since they have been playing this game for over three months and still have not gotten a single john point, even getting a “John” could qualify as at least a silver snitch.
  • Name and Name, in conjunction with The Eponymous Show.
  • Self-Deprecation: When Hamish put on some weight, many jokes were made about it; Hamish made more jokes about it then Andy did.
  • Straight Man: Andy; though he can still be quite silly, he's usually less so than Hamish.
  • Memetic Badass: Not Steven Seagal, but his drink, LIGHTNING BOLT!!!!
  • Uncanny Valley: The Ultimate Baby Wingman.
