***** (Fest). ***** (List). ***** (ThreeWeeks). ***** ( ***** ( ****½ (Age). Australia's kidult comedians are back with a new show filled with trademark bottom-waggling anarchy! Based on The Listies best-smelling book, Ickypedia aims to answer all of life's unimportant questions, like: How do you take a smellfie? What are udderpants?* How many bubble machines are too many? What's the Snot Ness Monster? What happens if you never ever clean your room? 'If the Wiggles are the Eagles, the Listies are the Sex Pistols' (Age). Fringe total sell-outs 2016, 2017. *Pants for cows.

Another brilliant show. Had us all in stitches. Kids have been making up their own words and thoroughly enjoying the Ickipedia Book. Highly recommended.

This is the 2nd time we've seen The Listies. Kids love them and they crack me (Mum) up! Please come back next year.

Wonderful, hilarious show - my kids gave it 10/10, and said it was their favourite show of the Fringe. Hope they come back next year.

Australian due Matt and Rich, aka The Listies, are back again with an hour of crazy antics and belly laughs. This year they are compiling their ‘Ickypedia’, a list of gross made up words, some of which will remain forever … Read More ...

Despite the ever-expanding Oxford English Dictionary, there remain many things for which there are, literally, no words. The loose premise of ‘Ickypedia’ is to present a compendium of new words to cover such scenarios, though our hosts’ attentions mostly fixate on the scatological in this rowdy children’s comedy show.

Edinburgh Festivals For Kids (5/5 stars) 123 days ago

The Listies are snot-tastically fantastic! They have perfected making children laugh, and what is even better is that they make all the adults laugh too! If there is only one show you manage to make it to with your kids at this year’s fringe – it has to be this one….

Primary Times (5/5 stars) 124 days ago

Warning: tape up your sides before coming to this show. It opens with a brilliant joke about Smiggle which warms the audience up nicely. Within minutes, the theatre is awash with giggles from adults and kids alike.
Get in on the secret and book your ticket. This will sell out. This is the Fringe at its best - simple, hilarious and truly wonderful.

If you know a kid that laughs at bums, farts, bogeys or anything disgusting this show is as close to perfect for them as you’ll find.

If the misuse of LOL gets your back up then rest assured it’s absolutely appropriate here – the kids LOLed, the parents LOLed and I think if the theatre had had a little more space between seats there’d have been blanket ROFLing.
