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.

"Sometimes", wrote The Scotsman, "five stars just aren't enough."

To say that Tripod, the veteran musical comedy trio from Melbourne, are getting better with age is to risk demeaning their earlier work. Which was awesome. Yet somehow they do seem to be getting awesomer. Or perhaps it's just that they're getting more relaxed with age.
