DES MOINES, Iowa - If you're looking for a highly caffeinated comedy, look no further than Triple Espresso at the Temple Theater in downtown Des Moines.

It's the sixth time this comedy show, starring three entertainers - Paul Somers as "Hugh Butternut," Patrick Albanese as "Buzz Maxwell," and John Bush as "Bobby Bean" - has come to Des Moines. This time, the cast is set to perform 50 shows, beginning Tuesday, November 16 and running through January 7. These three performers mix a bit of music, magic, and pure stand-up comedy to tell a story that takes the audience through various sketches. And a few members of the audience might find themselves on stage at some point, too.

Here in Des Moines, the cast says you'll see the show like nowhere else, because two of the three men (Albanese and Bush) on stage are locals, living with their families right here in Des Moines.

"Definitely this cast is specific to this town," Bush said. "We came here in 2002, and we now live here - we've loved it so much, because the show just kept on going, getting renewed. And I met my wife, [Albanese] met his wife."
