TRIPOD

Tripod is an Australian musical comedy act, specialising in improv, parody and satire. As its name suggests, the band is a trio; it comprises Scod (Scott Edgar), Yon (Simon Hall) and Gatesy (Steven Gates). The trio cover a wide variety of performance styles, from soft ballads to hard rock, usually performing these songs with only the aid of Scod (and, at times, Gatesy) playing acoustic guitar. 

At times they feature humorous sounds, such as Yon and his Flute from the Open Slather album, but their particular brand of humour stems from the lyrics of their songs and the comedic timing, often including the three men bickering on stage. The lyrics are often satirical or off-beat, and topics have included movie-style martial arts, stalking, interesting Shakespearean-era words, and counterterrorism.

STEVE ABBOTT - THE SANDMAN

Stephen Abbott is an enduring part of the Australian comedy landscape. While performing regularly as the Sandman or 'Sandy', Stephen has also found time to become an accomplished live performer, radio presenter, writer and actor.

Sandy also co-hosted Triple J's breakfast program with Mikey Robins and Jen Oldershaw. 

Stephen regularly performs as Sandy on TV programs, such as The Fat on ABC TV and Good News Week; on two TV specials with fellow comedian Flacco, and on his own special on Network Ten, Speed of Doubt.

They have won several comedy awards in their short career and shown their versatility by performing to sold out audiences in Edinburgh during the 2010 Fringe Festival.

Their TV credits include Australia's Got Talent, The Footy Show, NBC's Last Comic Standing, 2010 Australian IQ Test and a host of TV commercials. In addition, the twins are regular guests on local radio stations offering their opinions on a range of topics from sibling rivalry to the war in Afghanistan.
