Adam McKenzie & Tegan Higginbotham blast off into the comedy stratasphere with a new show
at The Melbourne Comedy Festival 2013

Watson are on mankind's first deep space mission to Pluto. Nine years there, nine years WiFi. Will space madness be the undoing of our hapless heroes? Or does Pluto hold the key to their greatest adventure yet?

This action packed sketch comedy show is filled with aliens, spaceships and a moon called Sharon. Pluto isn't a planet...It's a comedy supernova!

“Once Were Planets” features a cast of puppeteers who will ensure gravity knows no bounds. Watch as Earth's gravitational pull no longer applies to Watson as they rocket for the stars. And all with the help of the ship's computer...played by the audience!

Watson are the narrative driven sketch comedy team, Adam McKenzie and Tegan Higginbotham who thrive on the chaos of preparing a script for months, rehearsing it to perfection, and then throwing it away on the night when they get distracted by something shiny.

For the past two years Watson has given audiences raucous laughs with their shows The Super Secret Awesome Show and Shakespeare Fight Club. In 2012 their show was nominated for the Golden Gibbo award at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival.

Prior to forming Watson, Tegan and Adam were alumni of the very popular sketch group The Hounds, who in 2008 were nominated for Best Comedy Show at the Adelaide Fringe Festival for their production Every Film Ever Made.

“Once Were Planets” is a full throttle rocket ride of awesome. Don't miss out!
