Playing in PENANG at Performing Arts Centre of Penang from 1st – 2nd May 2012 Playing in KUALA LUMPUR at PJ Live Arts from 4th – 27th May 2012 Performed by The List Operators for Kids Produced by Gardner & Wife Theatre Producer Natalie Chong
The award-winning comedy duo's romp through the cyberspace, interweb thingo: myface, spacebook, lolz, and fartificial intelliegence! This ridiculously engaging show is stuffed with terrible puns, helpful hints (putting sliced cheese in the DVD drive is a definite no-no), and cyber glossaries. Word play has never been so much fun!
Sound effects and snippets of giddy pop music add to the party atmosphere, as do the water pistols, beach balls and tea towel ''aliens'' under the seats! If any show can inject children with the habit of theatre going. this is the one!
List Operators, Matt Kelly and Richard Higgins, know just which buttons to push to have the kids laughing uproariously in a matter of seconds. Grown-ups – no matter how hard they try - won’t be able to resist responding to the duo's classic straight man/funny man stuff!
Since performing their debut children’s show in September 2009,The List Operators have quickly received widespread critical acclaim across Australia, South East Asia and Edinburgh and are undoubtedly changing the face of children’s entertainment! They are back with brand new show which for kids, adults and robots. No-one will be key-bored!

14/01/2012 TimeOut Sydney by Bill Blake (aged seven) THE LIST OPERATORS DO KIDS DO COMPOOTERS
I would rate this show C for Crazy. There are two guys, Matt who is very crazy, and Rich, who isn’t so crazy. This show isn’t really about computers at all. It’s mainly about jokes. They have a big cardboard computer that they act things out in – like computer
games. + more
12/01/2012 The Sydney Morning Herald by Jason Blake TECH-TALKING MAYHEM FOR CHILDREN HAS ADULTS LOL TOO
Matt and Rich have the children fully engaged and laughing uproariously in a matter of seconds. Sound effects and snippets of giddy pop music add to the party atmosphere, as do the water pistols, beach balls and tea towel ''aliens'' under the seats... the children were jigging... + more
Jan 2012 Eight Nights A Week LIST OPERATORS FOR KIDS DO COMPOOTERS
Do Compooters is the comedy duo’s romp through cyber history and pop culture, stuffed with
terrible puns, helpful hints (putting sliced cheese in the DVD drive is a definite no-no), cyber
glossaries (we know what LOL means, but what's ROFLSHALBOWCO?), and poo
jokes. + more
01/08/2011 Chortle by Steve Bennett LIST OPERATORS FOR KIDS DO COMPOOTERS; MELBOURNE 2011
Hey parents, don’t give your kids sugary, fizzy drinks packed with additives – send them to the List Operators instead; the effect is very much the same, but without the tooth decay. + more
August 2011 The List by The McNaughton Family Review Team FRINGE REVIEW: LIST OPERATORS FOR KIDS DO COMPOOTERS
Did you notice that spelling mistake in the title, did you, did you? Yes, that’s
a CLUE! This show has poo in it. And that’s just the beginning.. If you’re between the ages of 5 and 11 this show will have you giggling your head off, maybe even ROFL and if you can’t help it maybe even
ROFLSHALBOWCO – and if you don’t get any of the acronyms, don’t worry + more
12/08/2010 The Stage by Maria Hodson THE LIST OPERATORS FOR KIDS
“That was great,” a young boy shouted up
at his mother at the end of the packed-out
show, and there’s no arguing against that
level of conviction.
boisterous production, a medley of pantomime,
slapstick and sketch... Opposing roles,
perfect for dynamic conflict... + more
