The Listies 6D (it’s twice as good as 3D)


Rated S for Stupid!

Auckland Live Presents

The Listies 6D (it’s twice as good as 3D)

Tuesday 30 September - Saturday 4 October 2014

Live at Herald Theatre, Aotea Centre

“It's like Little Britain for littlies. Grab one and go.” - The Age

Multi-award winning Australian comedy geniuses, The Listies, have a brand new show just for kids and it’s all about the movies - The Listies 6D (it’s twice as good as 3D). Rated S for Stupid!

Imagine the best movie you've ever seen. Now, times it by a million then add 1. That's how good The Listies 6D movie is going to be. Behind the scenes and in front of the camera, you never know which Hollywood star you are going to meet and which of your favourite movies is up for a Listies do-over.

"We can't wait to come and make our 6D movie with Aucklanderz.” Say Matt and RichNZ is full of film experts so ours will be better than ever. Together we could make the World's first 9D movie (3 times as good as 3D) or 81D (27 times as good) or even better A GUZILLION-D! Come along and join the fun. Hope to see everyone there."

The Listies are raucous, rude and very, very funny. If the kids are looking for fairies or clowns, then these performers are probably not for them, but if they want to meet a ninja Nana, ward off an alien attack or just ROFLSHABOWLO (Roll On The Floor Laughing So Hard A Little Bit Of Wee Comes Out) then The Listies are the guys for the job.

“Nobody else does comedy for kids this brilliantly, but what's more astounding is that adults have just as much fun. The Listies occupy a dimension all of their own.” - Sydney Morning Herald

Their 2012 debut Auckland show The Listies Do Compooters saw children howling with laughter and we expect even more chaos when The Listies 6D (it’s twice as good as 3D) takes over the Herald Theatre, Aotea Centre these October School Holidays.

“We are so excited to have The Listies back in Auckland” says Melanie Smith, Deputy Director and Head of Programming at Auckland Live “They brought the house down with their absurdity, they are masters of kid’s comedy”

Written and performed by Richard Higgins and Matt Kelly, The Listies 6D (it’s twice as good as 3D) won
Best Production for Children at the Sydney Theatre Awards 2013.

“The Listies compile lists. And, as the theme of the show is The Movies, the littlies are invited to name their favourite movies. Every little hand goes up.” -Herald Sun

The Listies
