Portrait of Tripod


Tripod is a musical comedy trio, absorbing a broad range of performance styles into their armoury of parody, satire and improvisation. Their latest studio album is Men of Substance, and in early 2013, they starred in the title role of The Dragon (Malthouse Theatre).

The group toured Men of Substance nationally for two years, including seasons at the Sydney Opera House and Arts Centre Melbourne, the Adelaide Cabaret Festival, Perth International Comedy Festival, BrisbaneComedy Festival and Darwin Festival. Their musical Tripod versus the Dragon toured internationally and was released on DVD through Beyond Entertainment.

Tripod also appeared on the ‘in memoriam’ segment of the 2011 Logie broadcast, with a rendition of Paul Kelly’s ‘Meet Me in the Middle of the Air’ alongside Eddie Perfect. In 2013, collaborating with Perfect again (as Perfect Tripod), they premiered Australian Songs at Arts Centre Melbourne.
