Interview: Math Kelly from The Listies


The Listies Ruin Xmas / is a show with a mission: to make families 

laugh as much as possible in 55 minutes. 

Known for their gross-out comedy, DIY props and hilarious onstage 

antics, The Listies are guaranteed to give kids and adults alike a theatre 

outing they won’t soon forget.

The irrepressible comedy duo features Richard Higgins and Matthew 

Kelly, who bring their unique brand of juvenile humour to the much-
loved and well-respected genre of the Christmas pantomime.

‘This hilarious pair of anarchists will throw away the out-dated clichés 

of the Christmas panto and replace it with an outragreous and very 

contemporary type of theatrical madness,’ said Matthew Lutton, 

Artistic Director of Malthouse Theatre.

A double act in the mode of Morecambe and Wise, Rich is the 

sensible one and Matt his naughty, childlike foil. 

While adults will also be in for a treat, The Listies Ruin Xmas will be 

chock-full of all the classy things kids love like poo jokes, vomit and 

interactive mayhem. 

‘Theatre isn’t just an experience for adults; the adrenaline and anarchy 

of theatre is for everyone,’ said Lutton.

‘No one can time a poo joke better than The Listies.’

This wickedly funny production avoids the usual corny clichés by 

treating the whole family to a uniquely Malthouse Theatre holiday 

experience that will leave everyone / with a cheeky grin.
