About the podcast
Minuscule Musical is a show where our hosts have written a short (minuscule) musical where form, structure, and good taste is stretched to its limits and ultimately asks: What is a musical anyway? Each 25-minute episode features Yon (Tripod) and one of his guest collaborators (including Sammy J, Jude Perl and Gillian Cosgriff) performing for the first time (and then discussing) their tiny show in front of a live audience.
Yon (Simon Hall) is best known for his work in comedy band Tripod. His solo projects include Second Wedding Singer, commissioned by the Adelaide Cabaret Festival and the Green-Room award-winning Mandaddy: Songs of Love and Love. More recently, Yon has also written songs for Dragon Lady starring Fiona Choi, Musical Fictions for the Sydney Writers’ Festival and for upcoming video game musical, Stray Gods.
As part of Tripod, Yon has performed on stage in the Edinburgh Festival, Montreal Comedy Festival and Melbourne Comedy Festival as well as with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra. Tripod have made countless TV appearances, including Just for Laughs Montreal, the Melbourne Comedy Festival Gala, (Network Ten and ABCTV), Skithouse (Network Ten) and The Sideshow (ABCTV). Tripod have written songs for Monster Beach (Cartoon Network) and the video game Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate (Ubisoft).
