What a find!

Tripod – Gonna Make You Happy Tonight

Nicole and I were watching TV earlier, and the Best Of 2008 collection of Just For Laughs came on. We were watching for a little bit, they were showing very funny, very entertaining clips from the cream of the crop of comedians this year.

One act they showed was a band called Tripod, a folk parody act from Australia. Formed around 1998 while the members were in university in Melbourne, they got some notoriety playing comedy festivals, and then a steady radio gig; as a recurring weekly spot, they were challenged to write a song from start to finish within an hour on the program, with the style and content of the song made up at the start of the show by the on-air hosts.

I wasn’t able to find their Just For Laughs performance, but this is pretty close – only some of the lyrics are different, which is to be expected when a group makes their break in improv.
