About This Event

“Rambunctious genius... Super fun – a brilliant mix of clowning and gross-out humour, general mischief with manic theatrical surprises the kids will go nuts for.” The Age

“The Listies teach children that the theatre can be a wonderful and exciting place. If your kids have never been to the theatre before, do them a favour and make this their first experience. It's something they will never forget.” The Scotsman

Australia’s favourite kidult comedians, The Listies, are bringing their best-smelling book Ickypedia: A Dictionary of Disgusting New Words to our stage!

Ickypedia is a seriously silly show that answers all of life’s unimportant questions: How do you take a smellfie? What exactly are udderpants?* and what happens if you never-ever clean your room? With snot-monsters, bubble machines and toilet paper guns, it’s a mix of clowning, slapstick, and improvised chaos that the whole family will enjoy!

*Undies for cows

Richard Higgins and Matt Kelly are acclaimed kidult comedy duo The Listies. Forming in 2008 their show More fun than a Wii went on to be the first kids show ever to be nominated for the prestigious Melbourne International Comedy Festival best show award (the Barry). Since then they’ve toured from the Sydney Opera House to South Korea, from Edinburgh to Malaysia, and all over Straya. The Listies book Ickypedia was published by Penguin in 2015 (with its sequel Ickyfoodia released in 2017). Recent live work includes Hamlet: Prince of Skidmark (Sydney Theatre Company, directed by Declan Greene), The Listies Ruin Xmas (Sydney Opera House, Malthouse Theatre) and 6D: Twice as Good as 3D (Melbourne Comedy Festival, Edinburgh Fringe).

Written and performed by Richard Higgins and Matthew Kelly.

Presented by: Frankston Arts Centre and The Listies
