Tripod

Tripod are comedy/cabaret writer/performers who make theatre, record albums and DVDs and constantly tour; it’s their job and, yes, they make a living out of it. 

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.
