The Listies 6D* (*It’s twice as good as 3D)
Australia’s favourite kids’ comedians The Listies are back in Brisbane by popular demand with a show all about the movies!
This fast-paced hour of family fun includes haunted backpacks, ninja nans, alien attacks and toilet paper cannons.
The Listies 6D is interactive, raucous, anarchic and six dimensions of fun. It’s stuffed full of all the high-brow things that kids love – like fart jokes and spewing puppets – and is guaranteed fun for the whole family (yes, even Dad!).
Best of all, in every performance an actual 6D movie is made - starring the audience!
Warning: Rated S for Stupid
"Nobody else does comedy for kids this brilliantly” (The Age)
The Listies are Matt Kelly and Richard Higgins, a duo who make and perform comedy for kidults (kids and their adults).
Ages ago (nearly in the dinosaur times), Richard and Matt met doing theatre at RMIT University in Melbourne. As well as doing 'serious theatre' the pair also did a bunch of Andy Griffith shows (The Day My Bum Went Psycho and Just Disgusting) and Roald Dahl's The Twits. Then they made a show for kids in 2009, the idea was to make a live show for children that was more fun than a Wii, so that's what they called it.
More fun than a Wii went on to be the first show aimed at kids to ever be nominated for the prestigious Melbourne International Comedy Festival best show award (the Barry). Since then Matt and Rich have played to thousands of children and their parents all over the world including all over Ozstraya, New Zealand, Malaysia, South Korea, England, Australia and Scotland.
Right now they have a whole bunch of stuff they are working on, like touring all over Ozstraya and beyond, doing a book with Penguin (the publisher not the flightless bird) called 'ICKYPEDIA: A DICTIONARY OF GROSS THINGS!' And doing some TV-type stuff that is like totes secret.
