Synopsis

This fantastic new series from two of Australia’s favourite comedy performers is 100% fun and gloriously silly. Filled with funny illustrations and featuring The Listies, Matt and Rich, as they appear in their shows and performances, this is an extravaganza of silly science fiction, toot-a-riffic toilet humour and slapstick. A STUPIDLY FUNNY adventure from Australia's favourite BFFs. Rich and Matt love their nan. Unfortunately their nan has an evil NANASIS. And by the time Rich and Matt discover that their Nan ALSO has a TELEPORTING PORTALOO in the backyard it’s too late. They’re already hurtling through the interdimensional plumbing of time and space on a mission to stop the world from going down the toilet, literally! THE NANASIS has gone crazy and WANTS HER STUFF BACK or the world is doomed. Can the Listies pay attention long enough to save it?

Matt Kelly
About the author

Matt Kelly

Matt Kelly is one half of the Melbourne based comedic duo The Listies. Together with Richard Higgins, he makes and performs comedy for kids and adults. The Listies met during theatre class at uni, but they enjoyed performing together so much they decided to make it official. Their show for kids called More Fun than a Wii was the first show for kids nominated for the best show award at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival in 2010. It went on to tour nationally and internationally, receiving rave 5 star reviews at the Edinburgh Fringe. Their first book, Ickypedia, is an encyclopedia of words that don't exist but should. Their second book, Ickyfoodia, is a gross and totally hilarious ‘encyclopedia of food’. To date, they have written nine award-winning and critically acclaimed live shows, collaborated with most major theatre companies and festivals in Australia, toured 3 continents, recorded three albums, and published two books with four books on the way. You can see them on ABC with their shows ’The Listies Work For Peanuts’ and 'Art Blast' and their music video ‘Wash Your Hands’ (with Zoe Coombs Marr and muso Ryan Ritchie).

About the author

The Listies

Richard Higgins and Matt Kelly are a comedy double act who make kids LOL. When they are not on tour with their live shows (or travelling interdimensionally) they live in Melbourne, Australia. They met doing student theatre at uni way back in the olden days. They enjoyed performing together so much that they decided to start making their own comedy shows. First they did crazy shows for adults, then they switched to making crazy shows for kids. Their first kids show was called ‘More Fun Than a Wii!’ Lots of people liked it, hardly anyone spewed. They took it to Edinburgh and had a great time. Since then they have made eight more shows, which they tour all over the place, they have recorded three albums, a podcast and two TV shows – The Listies Work for Peanuts and Art Blast (which are both on ABC iView). Their first book, Ickypedia, is an encyclopedia of words that don’t exist but should. Their second book, Ickyfoodia, is a gross and totally hilarious ‘encyclopedia of food’.
