The Listies Ruin Xmas!

THE LISTIES RUIN XMAS is a silly season sensation that does away with out-dated festive fodder in favour of something more worthy of the modern, multicultural holiday season. Starring Rich and Matt, The Listies, an award winning Aussie double act that specialise in lo-fi madcap comedy for kidults, RUIN XMAS is packed full of the classy things kids love like poo emojis, snow machines and inflatable Santa suits. Set on Christmas Eve, RUIN XMAS features a re-written Panto (complete with pantomime dinosaur), a new carol that name checks Hanukkah, Ramadan and Divali, a "magic" present wrapping routine and a singalong Australian version of the 12 days of Xmas. 

The Listies know all the right buttons to push to make your kids – and you – shriek with laughter. Yule love it.

FOR ALL KIDS AGED 4-400 Million (Dinosaurs allowed)

A RAMBUNCTIOUS BLEND OF AUDIENCE PARTICIPATION AND GROSS-OUT HUMOUR, WITH SKITS AND PANTOMIME, SINGALONGS AND STAGE MAGIC. PERFECT END-OF-YEAR FAMILY AMUSEMENT ★★★★  The Age
