AMAZING THREES IN ENTERTAINMENT
Good things come in threes. This is especially true in the entertainment world, where several different trios have grabbed our attention and stole the show. From literary characters, to movie stars, to musicians, three seems to be the magic number for success.
The comedy genre has most often seen its share of triplets, from the modern Blue Collar Comedy Group, featuring Jeff Foxworthy, Larry the Cable Guy, and Bill Engvall, to Chevy Chase, Martin Short and Steve Martin in the film Three Amigos. Not to be excluded is the classic 1934 vaudeville act, The Three Stooges, who cultivated a legacy that has influenced comedy long past their prime.
THE RAT PACK
Comedy isn’t the only area where a collection of three artists makes a prominent statement. Music also has its share of spectacular trios. Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr. and Dean Martin, otherwise known as The Rat Pack, often sold out all their appearances and created a whole new level of economic growth for the city of Las Vegas. From the late 1950’s to the end of the 60’s, American Folk music saw a revival thanks in part to The Kingston Trio. The Kingston Trio featured a lineup of Dave Guard, Bob Shane, and Nick Reynolds, who laid the path for popular music in the United States with never before seen record sales.
THE THREE TENORS
America wasn’t the only place to discover the power of three in music. Spain managed to hit the charts with The Three Tenors, comprised of Luciano Pavarotti, Placido Domingo and Jose Carreras, and found instant international success.
Many successful trios have also thrived on both the big screen and the more intimate television screens across the globe. In 1981, Charlie’s Angels offered a triple threat inboth mediums, with the original TV show chronicling the adventures of three females (Jaclyn Smith, Farah Fawcett, and Kate Jackson) working in a Los Angeles based detective agency. In 2000, the series was reignited when it was turned into a feature film, and again in 2003 with the production of Charlie’s Angels: Full throttle. This franchise has spawned several different entertainment categories, from comic books to video games.
Sometimes, the literary world can help heighten the importance of a trio in the entertainment industry. Most recently, the world has seen a cult following emerge from The Harry potter series, which follows Harry, Ron and Hermione. They are often referred to as The Golden Trio. This trio is responsible for the creation of several movies, video games, and even a theme park.
From these examples, it can be easily concluded that the entertainment industry has seen success in with several different 3s. The triple dose of talent seen by these groups has amplified the stories they tell and the way most have come to view the overall concept of trios in general.
