Listies to bring plenty of LOLs

TOILET HUMOUR: The Listies play two shows at GPAC tomorrow.

Adults will enjoy as many laughs as their children at a kids’ comedy show in Geelong tomorrow, according to reviewers.
One reviewer described The Listies’ as in “a dimension all of their own”.
“Nobody else does comedy for kids this brilliantly but what’s more astounding is that adults have just as much fun.”
The Listies, comprising Matt Kelly and Richard Higgins, will play Geelong Performing Arts Centre (GPAC) after selling out shows around Australia, New Zealand and the UK.
GPAC described their new show, The Listies Make You LOL!, as like “The Young Ones hosting Play School – if The Young Ones had downloaded two gigabytes of fart noises”.
The show features “alien attacks, toilet paper guns, spew, the rudest word in the world and the most disgusting pair of undies you have ever seen in your entire life”.
With a background in children’s theatre, Kelly and Higgins launched their first show, The Listies – More Fun Than a Wii, in 2009. The following year it became the first and only children’s show to earn a Barry Nomination for Best Show at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival.
GPAC said The Listies show was ideal for children aged six to 12.
GPAC will host two performances tomorrow.
The Listies will mark the beginning of GPAC’s five shows for children this year.
Forthcoming shows in GPAC’s Family Magic program include The 26-Storey Treehouse on 28 March and Roald Dahl’s Revolting Rhymes & Dirty Beasts in June.
GPAC said tickets for shows in the Family Magic series cost $20 each, or $17 each for groups of four or more.
