What was it about the Three Stooges
that has made them the most talked-about comedy team in America today?
From their beginnings in vaudeville (as actual stooges to Ted Healy's
lead) in the 1920's to their success on television in the 1950's (and
now in the 2000's as well), the Stooges relied on broad physical humor
and split-second timing to entertain audiences.
"Our comedy is based on upsetting
dignity," Moe Howard once recalled, trying to explain the team's
success with audiences and failure with the critics of their day.
And now, after some 75 years, the Stooges have never been more popular.
Who were these guys anyway? The Trivia
Tidbits Page delves a little deeper into the more uncommon "Behind
the Screen" secrets, passions, demons & successes of the
Godfathers of Comedy.
