Tegan Higginbotham is a multi-talented comedian, actor and writer. She's appeared in TV mini-series Molly about the life of Molly Meldrum, in films Oddball and Holding the Man, and is a regular member of Foxtel’s Whose Line Is It Anyway?

Tegan has had a regular presence on television, including on shows Have You Been Paying Attention?, The Project and Foxtel’s Screen, with Margaret Pomeranz and Graeme Blundell. Her earlier acting credits include It's a DateThank God You’re Here, Twenty Something, City Homicide and This is Littleton.

Tegan is the youngest veteran participant of the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, and she’s still in her twenties. 2016 saw her celebrate her 10th season, having performed every year since reaching the National Finals of Class Clowns in 2005. Her first solo festival show, Million Dollar Tegan, was a personal investigation into the traditional gentleman’s sport of boxing, while her 2013’s show, Touched By Fev, looked at whether sporting heroes should be role models as well.  Both shows earned Tegan 4.5 star reviews. In 2014 Tegan finished off her sporting themed trilogy with her show Game Changer. In 2016, her show City of Love explored her quirky observations of the difficulties adults can have when deciding to chase our dreams.

Tegan has performed as part of legendary sketch comedy group Watson, alongside Adam McKenzie and Liam Ryan for the past 5 years. They've staged multiple, high-concept, high-energy performances including their sold-out and award-winning show Who's Afraid of the Dark? at The Old Melbourne Gaol.  Through her ensemble and solo shows, Tegan has garnered popular awards, a Best Newcomer nomination, two Golden Gibbo nominations and the Best Comedy Award at the 2014 Melbourne Fringe. Tegan has become a regular part of the stand-up scene and has performed alongside the best in comedy including Wil Anderson, Rove McManus, Dave Hughes and Mick Molloy.

Tegan’s love of sport and AFL has seen her become a regular contributor to The Age Sport and appear as a panellist on the Seven Network’s Saturday Football and Friday Front Bar, and on Foxtel’s The BounceHer other television credits include an episode of Little Lunch co-written with Robyn Butler, and multiple sketches for Open Slather.

“It's a laugh-crammed narrative that is cutting, perceptive, cheeky and ultimately thought-provoking”Herald Sun
