'Triple Espresso'

The Central Lakes College Cultural Arts Series will present two shots of the highly caffeinated “Triple Espresso” – Saturday, Oct. 30 at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, Oct. 31 at 2 p.m. in the renovated Chalberg Theatre on the Brainerd campus. The Los Angeles Times called “Triple Espresso” a “triple threat of inspired craziness. Three guys, a coffee house, an utter lack of common sense... the funniest show you will see this century!” “Triple Espresso” tells the story of three guys whose bid for showbiz fame and fortune ended in four 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 in this two-act, two-hour production is infectious. The comedy appeals to everyone from first graders to college students to baby-boomers to grandparents. The show is advertised for kids from 6 to 106.
Audience comments echo one result: Unbridled laughter.
