For the last two Fringe Festivals, Mike Fotis and Joe Bozic’s plays have always been the show to see. This year, the duo completes its punk-rock trilogy (or “thrillogy,” as they say) with “Punk Rock Awesome.”

“Awesome” continues the tradition established by the first two plays “Punk Rock Omaha” and “Punk Rock Revisited” of leaving the audience with side-aches from laughter. And once again, the Ferrari McSpeedy duo has crafted probably the funniest show at the Fringe.

Those familiar with the pair will be happy to know that Ferrari McSpeedy have kept the unique style they forged in the previous plays. Though there are only two actors, “Awesome” has at least a dozen characters. Fotis and Bozic switch back and forth between characters, with a wave of the hand across the face and a “whoosh” sound. In the wrong hands, this approach could be confusing for the audience. But because of the actors’ various voices and flamboyant facial expressions, each character is colorful and distinct, never confusing.

If you haven’t seen the first two plays, not to worry. Though it is a trilogy, “Awesome” can easily stand on its own.

On this adventure, Ferrari McSpeedy play mercenaries who go by the code names “Leprechaun” and “Fairydust.” Just when they thought their killing days were over, they accept one last (and quite timely) mission: To rid the world of terrible music.

To do this, Leprechaun and Fairydust hunt down musical evil-doers such as Blink 182 – a dark fantasy anyone mildly music-snobby can appreciate. Plus, there is an absolute genius showdown between Led Zeppelin’s zeppelin and Boston’s spaceship.

Once again, the punk-rock boys have outdone themselves.
