The Art House Wyong is thrilled to welcome back maestros of kidult and family friendly comedy The Listies, with their school holiday show, The Listies: ROFL (Rolling on the Floor Laughing).
The show is a highlight of The Art House Presents July school holiday program, with The Listies being one of the venues most highly requested children’s acts. For parents with kids 5+ it’s a brilliant way to introduce them to theatre, and theatrical experiences.
“It’s been over two years since we were able to bring the fun of The Listies to audiences nationally, so it’s a delight to finally see Matt and Rich on the road again. After a sold-out season at the Sydney Opera House last summer, where thousands of young people got to enjoy their special brand of chaos and hilarity up close, and even meet them after the show, I’m sure that families in the Central Coast will be genuinely rolling on the floor laughing when they come to Art House Wyong.” Critical Stages Touring CEO Robbi James.
ROFL is a bonkers sketch comedy extravaganza made just for kids where 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.
The multi-award-winning duo behind the show are Matthew Kelly and Richard Higgins. They formed 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.”
