THE BUCKET LID CAFE is a sketch comedy series following the antics of a rag-tag group as they start a cafe in a small Midwest town.

 BUCKET LID CAFE is a sketch comedy series following the antics in the daily life of a rag-tag collection of old-timer comedians and entertainers.

CHESTER DRAWERS decides to use his royalties from his regional hit song, GRAVY ON A BUCKET LID to open a small cafe! His lifelong friends have decided to pool their resources together to help their buddy CHESTER achieve his goal and run a successful joint. The bumbling but well-meaning brotherhood of entertainers always seem to get in the way of running the business by doing things that seem to be a good idea at the time. CHESTER may contemplate the wisdom of his decisions and how much “help” these guys are, but the hilarious ensemble always seems to deliver in the end!
