Comedians Hamish Blake and Andy Lee are currently filming their new Channel Nine travel show 'Perfect' Holiday.

But it hasn't been smooth sailing for the comedy due, who revealed on Monday that they came close to dying while filming a prank.

Hamish made the revelation during a post-Logies brunch on the Gold Coast, telling guests that a scene involving a car plunging off a cliff almost went horribly wrong.

Referring to footage of the car plunging off the cliff that had aired during the brunch event, Hamish said: 'One day we came close to dying.

'We were in that car and a guy drove a forklift through the side of it as a joke.'  

He added: 'In Australia, we don't do a lot of "forklift through the window" gear, but in Alaska, it's one of the funniest jokes you can do. We learned a lot.'
