TRIPOD: THIS GAMING LIFE (MICF 17/04/2015)

Tonight is your last chance this festival to see this amazing production. Go do it. Now. There was so much love in the room for our favourite trio, I wouldn’t be surprised if someone got pregnant. I’m going to do […]

TRIPOD: THERE’S SOMETHING ABOUT MARY (SYDNEY OPERA HOUSE 2009)

There is a certain standard to be met when performing at such a prestigious venue as the Opera House.And Tripod certainly didn’t disappoint the audience. Songs included a variety of Christmas takeoffs and others including “Guns”, “If I Had a […]

TRIPOD ARE TRIPOD

I was not that impressed with Tripod this time round, and I feel really bad for saying it but it’s true. There was little new material.Pretty much if you’ve been watching Skithouse or have seen their Christmas Show last year […]

TRIPOD: LADY ROBOTS

Still waiting on the DVD guys. I was extremely impressed with this show. Tighter scripts than in previous years, extremely creative in its execution. Basically, being tired of their constant adventures the boys decide to go on holiday.In driving in […]

PAUL MCDERMOTT: COMEDYOSCOPY (MICF 2002)

Well McDermott did something totally out of the ordinary – he sang. And why did he sing, he asked the audience, (Because you always fucking do someone yelled out). No, it was a deception, a means of bringing people together. And […]

TRIPOD TELL THE TALE OF THE ADVENTURES OF TOSSWINKLE THE PIRATE NOT VERY WELL

These guys make nerds look good. It gets a bit hard to tell how much is scripted and how much is improvised but it doesn’t really matter.The songs are catchy and the banter is extremely quotable (if that’s a word). […]

BOB DOWNE: WHITER BRIGHTER (SYDNEY OPERA HOUSE, 2000)

The only thing that shitted me about this show was the Applefresh dancers. Now I’m a big a fan of Tony Bartuccio as the next person, but they seemed quite full of themselves to the point they were detracting away […]

BOB DOWNE: MILLION SELLERS (1999)

Prepare the time machine and set it for the ‘Time that Taste Forgot’. It may be daggy, it may be sad, but how could you not love Bob Downe. The eternal man child enthusiasm, the camp clothes and actions, that […]
