ABOUT

Hi. Welcome to our brand new website. We’re new as well so it seems fitting really. Watson is the world’s largest consumer of awesome. Tegan Higginbotham and Adam McKenzie are Australia’s newest sketch comedy group and the only two people ever to have successfully raised a polite zombie army. No stumbling around, eating your brains and scaring the neighbours for these guys. Watson’s Zombies we’re brought up right!

Tegan is an actress and comedian of some repute. She was once on Thank God Your Here as Tony Martin’s daughter. This pissed Adam off because he is a complete fan boy for Tony Martin and he didn’t speak to Tegan for a week. She was also in The Pacific but didn’t know it was based on a true story. She thought World War Two was Justin Beiber’s second album.

Adam has been performing comedy for over a decade so he must be pretty good. I mean you’d want to be after ten years. God imagined if he sucked. He’s performed all over the world, including exotic places like Canada and the U.S.A. One day he hopes to go to England and round out his “Middle Class, White Guy’s Tour of World”.

WATSON – Once Were PLanets

Following their nomination for the esteemed Golden Gibbo award in 2012, sketch comedy masterminds Watson, otherwise known as Tegan Higginbotham and Adam McKenzie, join forces once again to deliver their most energetic, creative and challenging show to date: WATSON Once Were Planets.

Watson once again discover themselves in the middle of a situation they have neither the experience nor intellect to navigate, their knack for trouble gleefully playing out in this zero gravity intergalactic mission. On the surface, WATSON Once Were Planets is a swashbuckling space adventure, however at its core it explores how relationships change over time: Earth with Pluto, Adam with Tegan. Everything changes.

Incorporating live acrobatic Black Art illusions with fast paced narrative comedy, WATSON Once Were Planets is a scintillating sci-fi spectacle that should not be missed.

Alumni of popular sketch comedy group The Hounds, Tegan and Adam have worked together for over seven years. Both individually, and together as Watson, Tegan and Adam have been praised for their playful, clever writing and exceptional comic timing. Their genuine love of performing is evident by absorbing onstage chemistry and enthralling, well-constructed narratives, charmingly delivered with equal measures of wit, enthusiasm and an endearing self-awareness.

WATSON, a marvelous collaboration, is a constant pleasure to watch.

NEW WEBSITE IS HERE!

Oh yeah… Watson has a brand new website. This is our first website actually so I think we should be congratulated for finally dragging ourselves into the twentieth century. What’s that? We’re in Twenty First Century now? Damn it. Well what does everyone have these days? Twitter… what the hell is that?

Anyways it’s not important. The important thing is that Tegan and I are on the web for you to enjoy. Check out the videos we have up, as well as listen to our podcast. We’re going to update this site regularly so come back and see what’s what. There’s a gigs section so you can come check us out live, as well as a whole bunch of photos. In case you are wondering, Adam is the pretty one with blonde hair and Tegan is the old, bald dude who’s grown a moustache in an attempt to look more manly.
