The Listies are Richard Higgins and Matthew Kelly, a comedy double act who are serious about being silly. They formed during the latest Ice Age (2008) to perform absurdist comedy to elderly people (i.e. 18+) but switched to full time kids comedy in 2011 and finding it to be a wondrous and rewarding sphere full of joy, have never looked back (plus the hours are heaps better).


To date, they have claimed to have written nine-ish award-winning & critically acclaimed live shows, collaborated with most major theatre companies and festivals in Australia, toured three continents, recorded four albums, and published two books with Penguin – and they have four books on the way. Though we only have their word for it. Oh, and their podcast has over 150,000 downloads but most of them are Matt’s Dad trying to work out how to use the internet.


See them on ABC with their shows Art Blast, What’s with The Listies, The Listies Work for Peanuts and occasionally in the background of outside weather broadcasts.


They performed over 120 shows a year to tens of thousands of people all over Australia and the UK. Nearly all of them stayed awake and only some of them vomited. Recently, in what may have been an administrative error, they won the Best Children’s Show at the Melbourne Fringe Festival.


In the past they have received a Sydney Theatre Award, ‘The HarperCollins Best Designed Children’s Fiction Book’ and the Best Independent show (Golden Gibbo Award) at Melbourne International Comedy Festival.They are still the only kids act to have been nommed for the Comedy Festival’s ‘Best Show’ award.





“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

“Nobody else does Kids comedy this brilliantly, what’s more astounding is that adults have just as much fun.”

The Age
