The only thing we have to fear is fear itself… Until now!

After their sell-out season of Who’s Afraid Of The Dark? at The Old Melbourne Goal,  WATSON are back with a whole new hour of horror-comedy in their brand new show – GO TO HELL! Except this time, they forgot to come up with a safety word…

Two years ago, Adam McKenzie, Liam Ryan and Tegan Higginbotham lured a bunch of innocent people into an abandoned jail during Comedy Festival for a night of spooky storytelling. But it’s safe to say, things got a little weird. Tegan became possessed by the spirit of a vengeful prisoner, audience members may or may not have been locked in jail cells, and not everyone got out alive. So…you know…a typical MICF.

But this year, they intend on going one step further and perfecting the recipe for horror by investigating the very nature of fear itself! So come on a ride that’s as dark as it is ridiculous as Watson explore your deepest, darkest fears.

What scares you? What tickles the dark parts of your brain? Is it snakes? Public speaking? Heights? Being asked seemingly endless questions? No matter what your personal fear is, WATSON will have it covered in a night of sketch and scares. You’ll be peeing yourself for all the right reasons. For once.

2017 Moosehead Award Recipients

Winners – Best Comedy, 2015 Melbourne Fringe Festival

ADAM McKENZIE
A multi-award winning writer, actor and comedian, Adam is a veteran of the Australian comedy industry. However, most will agree that he is most well-known for being the brains of WATSON comedy. That or he’s sometimes referred to as 'the pretty one', but he doesn’t want you to focus on it. Adam dreams of being an astronaut, or failing that, an astronaut’s wife

TEGAN HIGGINBOTHAM 
Over the past few years, you may have seen Tegan Higginbotham on your TV during various appearances on Whose Line is it Anyway? Twenty-to-One and Fox Footy’s Bounce. Or, you may have seen her literally crawling out of your TV, which was a separate thing she liked doing for a short while. Tegan dreams of being an action movie star, or the official bodyguard for The President of the United States of America (who she genuinely believes is Martin Sheen).

LIAM RYAN
Composed almost entirely of brains and curls, Liam Ryan is a Melbourne-based comedian, actor and writer. His highly acclaimed books include, Dammit Science: Where’s My Hoverboard and What Your Dog Says About You. Liam dreams of finally owning a non-pirated version of MYOB, or starring in a one-man version of Cats.

Expertly poised between comedy and horror
