Arts Centre Melbourne State Theatre

This event is part of 2023 Melbourne International Comedy Festival.

Tripod are a three-man guitar-based singing jokester group who have been doing it for two and a half decades. You will likely know Scod, Yon and Gatesy from triple j, Spicks and Specks and the Melbourne International Comedy Festival Gala.

In this, their 25.5th Comedy Festival, Tripod re-attempt their ill-fated show from 2022 that got shut down early for reasons of being too awesome (aka someone got COVID). So we know it’s good. It’s data driven. Guaranteed fact.

Limited shows, so don’t miss out!

In the 20-plus years since they first appeared on the Melbourne live pub scene, the Tripod ‘lads’ 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 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. Decades of playing onstage together have galvanised the trio into a world-class comedy showbiz juggernaut with whip-smart writing and musical chops to match.
