  • Overview

    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.

    In the past 23 years, TRIPLE ESPRESSO has entertained over 2 million people in over 50 cities in 6 countries in 3 languages (English, German and Flemish).
