Much loved, award-winning Australian comedian Frank Woodley will present the world premiere of his first comedy show for children Frank Woodley – Noodlenut at Arts Centre Melbourne’s Fairfax Studio this summer.

From January 19 – 24 parents will have the chance to introduce little comedy fans to Australia’s most physical comedian in his natural habitat – on stage – performing for the pure joy of it. Whether he’s singing songs about sneezing, doing chaotic magic or impersonating animals playing sport, comedy master Frank Woodley has kids rolling around laughing and in the palm of his hand.

The Melbourne-based comedian has been delighting Australian audiences for years with his acclaimed duo Lano and Woodley, solo stage shows and his own ABC series Woodley. In 2015, Frank turned his formidable talents to the world of kids comedy with the release of his much-anticipated children’s book series, Kizmet.

More recently, Frank has returned to his Woodley way with a new show, Fool’s Gold, performing at Adelaide Fringe, Darwin Festival, Brisbane and Sydney Comedy Festivals, and of course the Melbourne International Comedy Festival. He’s also stretched his musical legs in his collaboration with Harvest Rain (playing Sir Robin in Monty Python’s Spamalot at QPAC) and as the Inspector in Lemony Snicket’s The Composer Is Dead at the Sydney Opera House and the Melbourne Recital Centre.
