Tripod

Musical Satire

Cuter than an armful of puppies and funkier than white boys should be! Buckle up for a fast-paced onslaught of comedy and music rolled into a colourful, lovable and let's face it - downright sexy - bundle!

Tripod are Scod, Gatesy and Yon: three skinny, self-effacing, fun-loving lads who are just trying to make their way in the world without killing each other. The geek, the cool 'wannabe' and the weirdo sing and gyrate their way through the problems of the world and even manage to create a few new ones while they're at it.

Tripod have made countless TV and radio appearances, toured Australia extensively, enjoyed sell-out shows in the Melbourne International Comedy Festival and Edinburgh can't wait to have them back for a third time!

Melbourne's own 'professional singing idiots' have been dazzling audiences worldwide for over six years. They were regulars with Wil Anderson & Adam Spencer on Triple J and have released a number of full-length albums and live DVD's.

On television, the boys were part of the regular line up for The Sideshow (ABC TV) and were part of the team for Network Ten's sketch show skitHOUSE,.
