Tegan Higginbotham started comedy when in high school, through the Class Clowns competition. Today, just shy of 30, Tegan has an impressive comedy resume, which includes writing columns, improv, sketch comedy, and stand-up comedy, at festivals right across Australia. This year also happens to be her 12th consecutive Melbourne International Comedy Festival (MICF).
And that’s only the half of it. In this School of Hard Knock Knocks podcast, Tegan discusses her TV and movie roles, particularly that Neighbours episode, how she’s successfully married sport and comedy for TV, and how she develops stand-up comedy shows. She also reminds all comedians that they need to be versatile to grow a strong comedy career.
