Written and performed by Matt Kelly and Richard Higgins

The Listies are bringing their best-smelling book Ickypedia: A Dictionary of Disgusting New Words to the stage!

This seriously silly show answers all of life’s unimportant questions, such as how do you take a smelfie? What does pooetry sound like and where do cows buy their udderpants?

The Listies mix clowning, slapstick, and improvised chaos together with a bucket load of theatrical invention to make entertainment for everyone to enjoy. They are world class family entertainment with a legion of fans to prove it. By the way, there are bubbles. Heaps of bubbles!

SYDNEY EXCLUSIVE – BOOK EARLY!

Suitable for: Ages 4 – 80

Dates & Times:
Tuesday 26 September at 10:30am & 1pm
