Hamish & Andy: Celebrating 50 Glorious Years

Track List

Album Notes

For a second album (after the surprisingly cross-culturally funny Unessential Listening in 2008), Hamish & Andy, a pair of popular drive-time radio hosts in Australia, put together another massive collection of bits of witticism. The key to Hamish & Andy's comedy, at least in recorded form, is their avoidance of overly local pieces. The humor is universally Australian for the most part, but more generally universal beyond that. Comedy pieces run from prank calls to banter between the hosts, from brief political humor to prodding entertainment clichés. Comedy albums that aren't from standup artists have a hard time finding exposure, but Hamish & Andy have used humor here that's simultaneously general enough to capture broad audiences and witty enough to make up for any such generality. An interesting cultural listen to find out what's keeping Australian commuters happy. ~ Adam Greenberg
