Cuter than an armful of puppies, funkier than white boys should be and smarter than a nasty graze! Buckle up for a fast-paced onslaught of comedy and music rolled into a colourful, lovable and let's face it- downright sexy bundle!
Tripod are Scod, Gatesy and Yon: three skinny, self-effacing, fun-loving lads who are just trying to make their way in the world without killing each other. The geek, the cool 'wannabe' and the weirdo sing and gyrate their way through the problems of the world and even manage to create a few new ones while they're at it.
Tripod have made countless TV and radio appearances, toured Australia extensively and have enjoyed sell-out shows in the Melbourne International Comedy Festival every year. Edinburgh can't wait to have them back for a third time!
Melbourne's own 'professional singing idiots' have been dazzling audiences worldwide for over six years, most recently as popular regulars with Wil Anderson & Adam Spencer on Triple J. Tripod have released two full-length albums, the latest of which is a live album entitled "Open Slather", released through Rubber Records, containing the Xmas rock anthem "I Hate Your Family".
"Obscenely talented. A festival highlight." - Melbourne Age
"The funniest musical comedy act in the country." - The Herald Sun
"Tripod have perfected the art of music and comedy" - The List (Edinburgh)

Chris Bennett has been performing as a stand up comedian ever since he discovered his family was a captive audience.
Formerly working in the building trade his boss once told him that he was a class clown who would never grow up and that he was a distraction to everyone. After contemplating this, Chris thought, he had better do something about it and became a stand up comedian. He also realised that his boss was wrong to say those things and he didn't know anything about business anyway, he hasn't seen Mr Grollo since.
Professionally, Chris began working as a stand up comedian in 1993 and has performed all over Australia. He has entertained the widest variety of crowds from AFL football club functions to high profile corporate events. His television credits include several performances on live national television shows such as 'Hey Hey It's Saturday' and 'In Melbourne Tonight'. Chris has also made his presence felt on commercial radio, commencing with Gold FM writing for the breakfast show as well as performing on air segments.
Following on from Gold & after a highly successful stint on Triple M, 'Benno', moved in to the hot spot with Fox FM's number 1 rating breakfast show.
Now after months of getting to bed at 2am only to get up again at 4am for the breakfast show, Chris has opted for sleep over breakfast & has returned to Triple M part time whilst also concentrating on his first love - stand up!
Not only is Chris a seasoned performer going from strength to strength, he is also extremely funny.

Watching Steve Philp perform is like watching an episode of 80’s TV show “ It’s A Knockout” except he assures us no-one will get hurt!! Actor, Comedian and Former Radio Announcer Steve has adapted to most things his parole officer has given him.

Starting out on an acting career Steve starred in kid’s stage show’s such as “ Barney the Dinosaur” and “ Blinky Bill” as well as working with The Wiggles on “ The Dorothy the Dinosaur show” and quickly found kids to be on his level of intelligence.

More recently Steve has been revving up and humouring TV studio audiences as the warm up guy for TV Show’s such as Ready Steady Cook (soon to be seen on camera as the tomato/capsicum audience counter), Ronnie Johns Half hour, The Contest, Cd Live, Beauty and The Beast and Celebrity Spelling Bee. Steve also recently appeared on camera on the Comedy Channel’s “ Stand Up Australia” as well as appearing in the latest TV commercials for Career-One.

The Sun Herald describes Steve as “ a natural” and seems like not too long before he’s got someone warming up his own TV show audience.
