The Australian comedy duo, who recently announced that they would be leaving their weekday radio show with 2DayFM after four years, said that money has never been the "driving force" behind their careers.
Blake told News.com.au: "It was literally crazy money. It had a clown's head instead of the Queen's."
Lee added: "I know everyone says this but money has never been a driving force for anything Hamish and I have ever done. We did Fridays for free here for the first year because they said they couldn't afford us, which is funny for us now."
Blake said: "To make a living from this, to be able to call it a job, that's a blessing in itself."
