Tegan Higginbotham

Tegan Higginbotham is an actress, writer and comedian who is best known for her work on projects including Whovians with Rove McManus, Have You Been Paying Attention?, Molly – the TV series, and feature films Oddball and Holding The Man.

Over the past decade, Tegan has also established herself as a frank, funny and intelligent female voice amidst Melbourne’s sporting landscape. She co-hosted Sideliners on ABC alongside Nicole Livingstone, The Greatest with Matt Tilley on Fox Footy, and was a regular panellist on The Bounce. Tegan also hosts AFLW’s The Warmdown.

She is a regular contributor for The Age and has been published in books including She’s Having A Laugh (Affirm Press) and Balancing Act (Brow Books).

Tegan was very proud to perform stand up comedy at the NGV amidst the splendour of David Shrigley’s Life and Life Drawing exhibition, as well as hosting 2015’s Surrealist Parlour alongside Zilverter and Simon Maidment.

“It’s a laugh-crammed narrative that is cutting, perceptive, cheeky and ultimately thought-provoking” The Herald Sun on Million Dollar Tegan
