Tripod is a strange beast. On the one hand they tour the world standing in a line singing unrelated funny songs on a stage: concert mode. On the other hand they focus their various talents toward a tourable ‘production’, of sorts, combining theatre, improvisation and music to create something…well, different. On the third hand they make albums and TV. Below is a list of shows, from newest to oldest, spanning Tripod’s long and illustrious career.
Tripod return to cabaret mode as they come to terms with adult life. Can you balance grown-up responsibilities whilst getting paid to act like a child? You bet. The show coincided with the release of Tripod’s latest studio album of the same name.
Tripod’s most ambitious theatre production to date. Directed by Neill Gladwin and joined onstage by the incredible Elana Stone, Tripod create the largest world possible, exploiting the simplest of props, to tell an epic musical adventure inspired by Scod’s love of Dungeons and Dragons(tm).
Tripod go against fan expectations to tell the long and sometimes sordid story of famous comedy songs and those who sang them. Over-researched and completely unnecessary, this made-up history lecture proved to be the show nobody asked for but still talk about to his day.
Tripod go from strange pub oddity to fully-fledged comedy band and for the first four years of Comedy Festivals combine sketches, songs, musical mash-ups and whatever else they find amusing to an occasionally bewildered but loyal audience. Some refer to these times as Pod August Nights..
