Comedian Hamish Blake: Happily Married For Nearly Nine Years | His Professional Career And Early Life

Hamish Blake is best known as one half of the comedy duo “Hamish & Andy.” The pair has had a successful career in comedy in Australia, most famous for their drive-time radio program Hamish & Andy series. Blake is equally successful as a solo artist, having appeared on numerous Australian TV shows.

The Aussie comedian also has the same success when it comes to his love life. However, the beginning of his love story was not so pleasant.

Happily Married for Eight Years

Hamish is happily married to his beautiful wife, Zoë Foster Blake. His wife is an Australian author, columnist, magazine editor, and cosmetics entrepreneur.

Their love story started with a friendship when they met each other at a media event. Hamish immediately fell in love with Zoe. He said:

“I had never met anyone like her – confident, hilarious, obviously beautiful and very full of fun and life. I’ve come to know it as the Zoë magic.”

However, Zoe saw Hamish as a friend initially, but a year later, her feelings towards the comedian changed romantically. On 3rd January 2012, Hamish announced that he was engaged to his girlfriend. The duo tied the knot later that year on 11 December 2012 in New South Wales.

The lovey-dovey couple shares two children- Sonny Donald Blake, born on 10 May 2014, and Rudy Hazel Blake, born on 19 July 2017. The loving parents of two celebrated their 8th anniversary in December 2020. On the anniversary, the comedian wrote on Instagram:

“8 years ago in our wedding vows we promised to love each other unconditionally.”

Andy Lee Helped Him in Comedy

Hamish’s journey in comedy started when he met Andy Lee. The duo collaborated in 2003 and was known together as “Hamish and Andy.” They had their breakout performance at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival and performed live on television and radio shows. They rose to prominence for their radio program, Hamish & Andy. Likewise, Hamish has been featured as a solo act on TV series like Spicks and Specks, Thank God You’re Here, and Rove.
