The Art House presents


The Listies & Critical Stages Touring

Written & Performed by Matthew Kelly & Richard Higgins as The Listies!

A bonkers sketch comedy extravaganza made just for kids, ROFL sees The Listies tackle the most tortuous family situation of all: BED TIME. Rich, the exhausted parental proxy, is trying to get an early night while his hapless, hopeless housemate, Matt, deploys every trick in the book to stay up late. Featuring toilet paper cannons, a real life Cowasaurus, lullabies of doom, detachable legs, and a panoply of puns, ROFL is just as much fun for adults as it is children. For parents with kids 4+ it’s a brilliant way to introduce them to theatre, and theatrical experiences.

The multi-award-winning duo behind the show are Matthew Kelly and Richard Higgins. They formed during the latest Ice Age (2008) to perform absurdist comedy to adults but switched to full-time kids’ comedy in 2011. To date, they have written and produced nine critically-acclaimed live shows, three owl bums, and several books published by Penguin. They can also be seen on ABC TV’s The Listies Work for Peanuts.

“If you want your kids to have fun at the theatre and fall for all its magic, get them to a Listies show as soon as possible”  ★★★★ Daily Review



“The only downside of seeing The Listies is that kids may be disappointed the next time they go to the theatre because it isn’t always this awesomely excellent.” Sometimes Melbourne 

“No-one else does comedy for kids this brilliantly, and what’s more the adults have just as much fun!” Sydney Morning Herald.

“Funny, entertaining and full of energy and imagination.” Stage Whispers
