Tripod is Melbourne's own musical comedy trio, Scod (Scott Edgar), Yon (Simon Hall) and Gatesy (Steven Gates).
Tripod emerged from the thriving Melbourne live music pub scene of the mid nineties, supporting popular local cover bands in such places as the Station Hotel, The Esplanade, the Central Club, the New Orleans Tavern and the Ritz, St Kilda.
Since their earliest shows Tripod have made a consistent habit of juggling comedy, music and narrative in endless exhilarating combinations, consistently evading neat definitions whilst always striving to stay worthy of their fans' time.
The boys have had significant success on the international stage - including one particularly scorching season at the Edinburgh Festival where the Scotsman newspaper gushed '..sometimes Five Stars isn't enough'. They have created numerous musicals including the magical Tripod Versus the Dragon in collaboration with Megan Washington and featuring Elana Stone, and have toured the smash hit cabaret show Perfect Tripod: Australian Songs where they showcase their singing chops in a breathtaking a-capella quartet with Eddie Perfect.
Tripod continue to bring an insane level of craft in both comedy and music and combine them in a rich and satisfying way - an ability that has cemented them as a much loved cultural fixture in Australia.
