Comedy duo heads to WA

Funnymen Hamish Blake and Andy Lee are heading to WA for the latest instalment of their hit TV specials, Caravan of Courage: Australia vs New Zealand.

In fact they could already be here.

Speaking from Darwin earlier in the week, Gold Logie-winner Blake, above left with Lee, said the Australian leg of their madcap adventure had started in Cooktown.

"Then we looped down to Townsville and came across the Queensland outback into the Northern Territory and Darwin, then we will loop through the top of Western Australia," he told _AAA _.

"It is going to be pretty remote. I don't think we will get to too many heavily populated areas. If you can find us we will give you a free Callipo. I think we aim to finish up in Arnhem Land, we will loop through WA and come back to Darwin."

The two 90-minute specials, likely to air on Nine next month, will also feature the duo travelling south to north in New Zealand.

As in their previous specials, they have given their motorhome a nickname.

"We've had Sir Vancealot and Abravan Lincoln. This one has tentatively been named Van Diemen. We had to give it kind of a New Zealand feel as well.

"The Dutch had a peek at New Zealand and a peek at Australia so this one has been doing us well."

From today their popular national Friday drive-time show, aka Pants Off Friday, will also be heard on Absolute Radio in the UK.
