Melbourne's kid-friendly comedy duo The Listies return to Arts Centre Melbourne's Fairfax Studio this winter, to perform Ickypedia; a stage adaptation of their best-selling book.
Matthew Kelly and Richard Higgins who are The Listies have performed 'Kidult' (fun shows that appeal to both children and adults) comedy for over a decade. The two comedians were first cast in a stage production of Andy Griffith's Just Disgusting book, directed by Lynne Ellis at RMIT University in 2002.
Inspired by classic comedy duos, The Listies went on to perform ridiculous on stage productions for adults The List Operators, which you may have guessed, are shows related to lists!
The Melbourne Comedy Festival award-winners are of course no strangers to kid-centric comedy with such shows as The List Operators for Kids: More Fun than a Wii!, The Listies Do Compooters, Earworms, 6D (Twice as Good as 3D), The Listies Make U LOL and The Listies Ruin Xmas under their belts.
This winter, The Listies present Ickypedia at the Arts Centre Melbourne, which, like the book, features a new language of all things gross for little ones and lots of toilet humour.
The seriously silly show aimed at children aged 4 plus and their grown-ups answers all of life’s unimportant questions, such as how do you take a smellfie? What does pooetry sound like and how does one avoid a fartquake?
