Kids are guaranteed to have fun at THE KAZOOS show but be assured that it is educational as well as entertaining.

Ever since he was a little boy, Chris Hill, son of 80s TV icon Betty Bobbitt, knew that he never wanted to grow up. Now, thanks to forming surprise-hit children’s act THE KAZOOS with his wife Celia, he doesn’t have to!
“They say you shouldn’t mix family and business but that rule doesn’t apply to show business.” said Ms. Bobbitt, the actress best known for her role as Judy Bryant in Prisoner Cell Block H.
“I was absolutely thrilled when my son asked me to be a part of The Kazoos, as I’ve been involved with children’s theatre for decades as an actor, writer and director,” she said.
Since 2005, THE KAZOOS have grown in popularity to become one of Australia’s most and loved children’s musical acts. They tour theatres nationally, have performed at some of the countries most prestigious events and most recently branched out with an international tour of Singapore.
“We love visiting new places and are always astounded at the kids responses whether we are in Asia or Outback Australia,” says Chris.
Celia said: “The show is all about Professor Silly (think Jim Cary for Preschoolers) who loves questions. But with a PHD in Silliness his answers are…well…silly! My character is Tulip and I enlist the kids to help me sort out the mayhem so our magical floating island can continue on a quest for question.”
Many are already raving about THE KAZOOS with prominent media and entertainment personalities singing their praises. Olympic swimmer Michael Klim and his wife Lindy say, “Our kids are obsessed with The Kazoos. We are definitely their biggest fans,” while Chris Cheney from the Living End proclaims, “My daughter is so star struck by The Kazoos! They might as well be The Beatles!”
Other fans of THE KAZOOS include Kasey Chambers, Fifi Box, Jules Lund, Gorgi Coghlan and Denis Walter.
