The Nitwits take on all your favourite classic stories in their hilarious new show!

The Nitwits are the most amazing thing to happen to children's entertainment since a cat first rode a roomba. Matty and Teddlie are loud, naughty, bright and absolutely hilarious.

Fractured Fairytales...

In a creepy house, deep in the creepy woods, there is a book that’s, well… a bit creepy. It might smell like old person farts, good cheese and crusty socks but the book is really a magic First Edition that holds the souls of all fairytales within its pages. When the book is accidentally burned all the stories are destroyed with it. Goldie who and the three what? Little Red Riding where now? Matty & Teddlie have until dawn to rewrite the book and save the stories from being lost forever. Hopefully they can get the stories mostly right… (but it’s unlikely).

"4 stars... The Nitwits 'Fractured Fairytales' are a little bit silly, a little bit dark and totally demented!" - MICF Funny Tonne

"This could just be the funniest show on earth." - Melbourne Observer

"It was fantastic!" - Stage Whispers

Try as they might, the fairytales just don't seem to be coming out right. Handsome princes' seem to play a lot more pokemon and have a lot more pimples than you might remember. Thumbelina is a Mexican Thumb wrestler looking for love. Jack's cow really wasn't that happy about being sold for a few stupid beans.

Why take on Fairytales? Because Matty is a descendent of Beatrix Potter's family and Kat is a descendent of the Anderson family (as in Hans Christian). Given their lineage it was only a matter of time before they turned their writing talents to the classic fairy tales that have been a part of every childhood for the last hundred years. Everything from Rapunzel to Red Riding Hood comes under inspection for a new spin... with an added hefty dose of fart jokes.
