More Information



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.

The laughter is infectious and the comedy appeals to everyone from first graders to college students to baby-boomers to grandparents.
