    Tegan Higginbotham - as seen on Thank God You're Here and Spicks & Specks, Tegan is a multi-talented comedian, actress, writer and occasional sports reporter. A sports fanatic, her first solo show - Million Dollar Tegan - was a personal investigation into the traditional gentleman's sport of boxing, where she got hit in the head A LOT.

     

    Elbowskin - recently described by The Age as "great, fall-off-your-seat-laughing fun". With songs glorifying the wonders of beer, about how great Mums are and barbs aimed at pretentious cafe culture, you will soon be raving to everyone about your new favourite comedy act.
