“A triple jolt of inspired craziness … crackles with an energy and spirit of infectious fun!”— Los Angeles Times
“the funniest thing on six legs” – The London Theatre News
Triple Espresso—a highly caffeinated comedy shines the spotlight on three hilarious performers as they reminisce about their ill-fated big break. Triple Espresso tells the story of three guys whose bid for showbiz fame and fortune ended in 4-minutes of magnificent failure on national television. Hugh Butternut, Buzz Maxwell, and Bobby Bean tell their rags-to-rags story earnestly, with hysterical results. Butternut is a musician, a vulnerable soul with a lounge lizard smile; Maxwell is an uncertain magician with an attitude; and Bean is an irrepressible, all-over-the-map entertainer with big dreams. The laughter is infectious and the comedy appeals to everyone from first graders to college students to baby-boomers to grandparents.
