 “…if the Young Ones ever hosted Playschool, it would resemble The List Operators” - The Age 

 “Take every child you know. If you don't know any – kidnap some.” – Aussietheatre.com 

“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.” – Scotsman 

SOLD OUT AT EDINBURGH FESTIVAL FRINGE
NOMINATED FOR BEST SHOW AT MELBOURNE COMEDY FESTIVAL

More Fun Than a Wii is a playful, naughty, fun and 'Goon-like' comedy for children and families. The List Operators (Matt Kelly and Richard Higgins) comedy style provides kids with all the delights of being silly, for the sake and total joy of just being silly!

Deliberately raucous, and rude and very, very funny, “The Listies” leave adults AND children gasping for breath. If you are looking for fairies or clowns, then “The Listies” is not for you, but if you want to meet a ninja nan, ward off an alien attack or just ROFLSHABOWCO (Roll On The Floor Laughing So Hard A Little Bit Of Wee Comes Out) then these are the guys for the job.


The Listies say this show is:
1.   Rude
2.   Gross
3.   Funny
3a. Funny Looking
4.   Silly
5.   Spelllllchecked
6.   Better than Ben 10 , it's like Ben 11!
7.   Downtownwrongtown
8.   Awesome!

This show is not:
1.   Not funny
2.   A show about fairies, pirates and princesses
3.   High in fibre
3.   Sensible
4.   Educational - 100% guaranteed
5.   Spelllllchecked.

Matt Kelly and Richard Higgins are veterans of children's theatre. They cut their performance teeth at the legendary RMIT Union Arts Xmas shows such as The Day my Bum Went Psycho, Just Disgusting (by Andy Griffiths), and The Twits (by Roald Dahl).

Individually Matt and Rich have performed for kids all over Australia; Perth (Circus Soup), Adelaide (Kids Comedy Gala at Speigeltent), Canberra (Questacon) and all over Regional Victoria and NSW, QLD and ACT (Jigsaw Theatre Company and The Great Big Storybook). When he is not a List Operator Richard is a Clown Doctor at the Royal Children's Hospital.
