The Listies Ruin Xmas is an uproarious take on the holiday panto. Its mission? To make families laugh as much as possible in 55 minutes.

A few years ago Rich and Matt decided to shake up the world of kids comedy, and The Listies were born. Since then they have become Australia’s most sought after family comedians. Hilarious, messy and decidedly insane The Listies have sold out shows all over Australia, New Zealand and the UK, delighting audiences and critics alike. They were such a hit with Northern Rivers audiences when they performed their show The Listies Make you LOL! earlier in the year, NORPA have invited them back to perform The Listies Ruin Xmas.

mhlisties_photopiajohnson_069This irreverent new production does away with out-dated Christmas fodder for something worthy of modern, multicultural Australia. Jam packed full of the classy things kids love like pop-culture, poo jokes and vomit, The Listies know all the right buttons to push to make your kids – and you – shriek with laughter. Bring the whole family to an interactive Christmas show to greet the holidays.

Bring your children, your grandchildren, your nieces and nephews, your neighbours, any small people you really want to impress.

Some of the praise

“Poo jokes and back-up belchers. Bubble machines and fake snow. Antic visual comedy and gleefully absurd repartee. In this perfect end-of-year family amusement, there isn’t much in the laughter department The Listies don’t have wrapped up.” Cameron Woodhead The Age

“In the domain of children’s theatre, The Listies are masters of audience participation that mainly involves kids and parents excitedly chucking stuff at these relentlessly cheerful performers.” Kate Herbert The Herald-Sun

“From the very start of The Listies Ruin Christmas, the kids and I were in hysterics. There were moments when I was laughing so hard I had to cross my legs and hold my tummy.” The Kids Bucketlist

“The Listies are guaranteed to give kids and adults alike a theatre outing they won’t soon forget.” Australian Arts Review
