In the twenty-plus years since they first appeared on the Melbourne live pub scene, the “boys” have delighted audiences from comedy clubs to symphonic concert halls and everything in between. They have also created numerous narrative musicals for the stage, as well as for children’s cartoons and global videogame properties, picking up multiple awards and, through their constant work on television and radio (and, more recently, their popular podcast), becoming a much loved household name along the way.
Three-part harmony arranged with extraordinary complexity – accompanied by guitars and often piano – make the backbone of a live Tripod concert; a loosely choreographed, expertly timed comedy show, with dynamics that change on a whim and snap back in the blink of an eye. Twenty one years of playing onstage together has galvanised the boys into a world-class comedy show biz juggernaut with whip-smart writing and musical chops to match.
“… one of the funniest things happening in Edinburgh right now. Or possibly the world… there’s hardly time to catch your breath in between bouts of uncontrollable laughter… these guys are unbelievable musicians too. Sometimes five stars just aren’t enough.” – The Scotsman, Edinburgh
“Tripod could be a comedy trio or just a very strange, very talented rock band.” – Adelaide Advertiser
