LEWISTON – In 2002, Randy Judkins, Barney Martin and Steve Underwood joined artistic forces to create The Maine Hysterical Society. Ever since, the variety artists, actors, musicians and Downeast humorists have entertained audiences with their comedy variety shows of original songs, parodies and juggling.

Friday, Oct. 24, they will perform at 7:30 p.m. at The Maple Room.

This past June, the trio appeared with some notable personalities in the laughter business, including Lucie Arnaz, daughter of Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz, at the International Conference on Humor in Lake George, N.Y.

She liked their original songs about Maine and character comedy so much, Judkins said, that she invited them to join her in July at Birdland, a legendary jazz club in New York City.

Expect the unexpected with this wacky trio. The Maine Hysterical Society has been known to weave melodic tunes on what it’s like living way up north in Caribou, delving into the minds of three curious clams, coping with black fly season, launching a singing telegrams business or revealing a wish-list of items Mainers shouldn’t live without.

Tickets to the show are $20. Seating is limited to 100 people, so advance tickets are suggesed. They may be purchased at www.themapleroom.info. The Maple Room is at 22 Park St.
