I loved the three stooges when I was a child growing up in the late 70s early eighties.  
Larry, Moe &.Curly were the best.  Shemp sucked but I watched anyway.
I have often wondered what happened to them after Three Stooges.  What were their lives like off the screen?

Let's discuss.

Ahhh, finally, an intelligent topic of conversation!

Shemp didn't suck, its just that Curly was better.
I will still watch them when they come on TV.

The 3 Stooges? Do you mean barack obama, joe biden and rahm emmanuel? Well, I think they all suck but that's just my opinion.

Wrong Curly.  Curly Howard was excellent.  

Curly Joe DeRita sucked.  So did Joe Besser.

Some of the best comedy of the 20th century, without a doubt.
Link Posted: 4/29/2009 8:23:26 PM EDT
After Babe's stroke and the end of the later stooges, Larry and Moe lived in obscurity and near poverty until Larry had his stroke and died in the early sevnties and Moe followed very quickly after.

They both never saw the fame and fortune that they deserved.

BTW:  Shemp is a comedy genius.

Many of the quotes on IMDB are submitted by me.

Curly: -[Taking a census] I'm gettin' sick and tired of this! How old are you?
Football player: Ninteen!
Curly: Now we're gettin' somewhere!
Football player: Eighty-three! Twenty-seven! Twenty-two!
Curly: Why don't you make up your mind?

Moe: Pardon us, madame, we're census takers. What's your name?
Larry: And your address?
Curly: What's more important, what's your phone number? Nyuk, nyuk...
[Woman hits them with her purse]

Curly: [after finding money hidden in a can on the scrap metal pile] I didn't know they put money up in cans!
Moe: Well, they don't!
Curly: Sure, see?
[points at label, "canned corn"]
Curly: Canned coin!

Con-Man: This is the house I was telling you about, boys. A treasure was buried there by Captain Kidd's kid.
Curly: No kiddin'!
Con-Man: That's right!
Curly: Oh boy!
Con-Man: Just a minute! You have to pay us $200 for the privilege of digging it up!
Curly: Two hundred?
Con-Man: Two hundred or nothin'.
Curly: Oh, we'll take it for nothin'!

Moe: [looking through telescope toward Egyptian desert, but with Larry's head in the way] We're coming to a jungle. I can see the underbrush! And camels walkin' through it! No no, they're octopus!
Larry: I don't see anything!
Moe: [notices that he was looking at Larry's hair] You will!
[hits Larry with the telescope]

Dr. Crowell: That means we'll never find the missing king!
Curly: [looks surprised, takes card out of his front pocket] How did YOU know the king was missing?
[Moe turns his head to look]
Curly: I... Ooh!
[hides card before Moe can see]
Moe: Oh, so you're the one, eh? That's how you won my thirteen cents!
[smacks Curly]

Thug: [in tomb, with Curly laying on a table dressed up as King Rutin-Tutin] Hey, where are those jewels that are supposed to be buried with them?
Thug in Museum Basement: Oh, they always wrap 'em up inside the mummy. We'll have to cut him open.
[with thugs looking away, Curly cringes, and unzips the front of his mummy costume]
Thug in Museum Basement: Let me have that sharp knife you have there.
[looks at "Rutin-Tutin"]
Thug in Museum Basement: He's burst open!
[reaches inside Curly's costume, pulls out newspaper]
Thug in Museum Basement: "Yanks win world series." Can you beat that?
Curly: Yeah, and I won five bucks!
Thug in Museum Basement: No kidding? I had the Cubs, and... WHAT?

Moe: Listen Bustoff, you can't drink that. That's alcohol.
Ivan Bustoff: That's not alcohol. That's just a little tequila, vodka and cognac.
Curly: Oh, that's different, go ahead.

Tony: Bustov has the biggest fight of his life today, and you're here gettin' him stewed!
Curly: Yeah, but he's payin' for it!

Curly: I'll cook the supper. How about scrambled eggs smothered in steak?
Larry: Sounds swell to me. Where are the eggs?
Curly: On top of the burro, so they'll be nice and fresh in the sun.
Larry: Yeah, we'll... get goin' before we starve here. C'mon.
Curly: Oh, fresh henfruit. Handle with care.
[tosses eggs to Moe]
Curly: A sack of flour comin' down!
[Tosses sack of flour down. Moe is forced to drop the eggs to catch the flour]
Larry: Ya nitwit, now you broke the eggs!
[Newly hatched chicks are walking around the broken eggs]
Curly: So what? We'll have steak smothered in lamb chops... and maybe chicken on the side! Nyuk nyuk nyuk.
Larry: Well, you fix it, I've got some prospecting to do. Hand me down that dynamite, and be careful!
Curly: I'll handle it as if it were eggs!... I mean, I'll be careful!

Señorita Rita: But my General, the fat one does not look like a spy. He looks very innocent.
Curly: Oh, I don't know, I've been around!

Moe: Oh, my personality, thanks buddy.

Judge: Ye are accused of doing battle with his Majesty's guards. What say ye to the charge?
Larry: I can explain, judge. you see-eth, it was like this-eth. I...
Judge: Guilty! I sentence ye to Newcape prison for forty years! ye to forty-five! Ye to fifty!
Moe: Forty?
Larry: Forty-five?
Curly: Fifty? I got fifty. Fifty. Fifty, fifty, fifty, fifty, do I hear fifty-five, do I hear fifty five? Going once, twice, do I hear fifty-five? Who'll make it fifty-five?
Judge: [breaks gavel] I shall!
Curly: Thank you. I... Woo!
Judge: Fifty-five years for the lot of ye at hard labor!
Prosecutor: But your lordship, t'would cost the crown a pretty penny to feed yon wastrels for fifty-five years! Why not send them to our colonies in America to fight the redskin savage?
Curly: Oh, I just love corned beef and savage!
Judge: Silence! I now sentence ye knaves to defend our colonists from the savages!
Moe: Gadzooks! They'll scalp us alive!
Curly: Not me! Nyuk nyuk!

Blackie: You men ever sold anything?
Curly: Why certainly, anything we could lay our hands on!
Moe: The gentleman said "sold," not "stole."

There was a "made for TV movie" about those guys and thier careers as well as thier lives. I made a point to watch it.
It was all about their early days, finding larry to join thier trio and the deals to make the "shorts" in a time where full length movies were taking over. It wasn't all that glamourous.

It was done well and gave you insight as to who they really were.
Link Posted: 4/30/2009 2:51:41 AM EDT
Curly was a genious.

Sometimes I watch just one of the three, instead of getting distracted by Moe, just follow Larry for a while.  He was funny too.  Curly spent a lot of time trying to steal the scene.

And I try to use words like Chucklehead, and scram, whenever possible.

Special Notes: Three Little Pigskins is one of the most enduringly popular comedy shorts of the 1930s, featuring The Three Stooges at their anarchic best. It's also famous for providing an early supporting role to Lucille Ball, who plays Daisy Simms, the gangster's girlfriend. Lucille Ball would always credit the Stooges with introducing her to "slapstick and physical comedy." According to Jack White, brother of Stooges producer Jules White, Lucille quickly left the studio because "Harry Cohn didn't want to bother with her. He didn't think she had any talent!"

Without a doubt, the Stooges are the one thing that bridges the generation gap.

You can put a 17 YO tattooed kid with 16 piercings on one end of a couch an 83 YO stodgy old man on the other end. They will have nothing in common.

Put the Stooges on the tube and inside of three minutes the pair of them will start poking each other and doing Curly imitations.

Almost never fails.

For all things Stooge.  http://www.threestooges.com/


As a kid I laughed at the slapstick. As I got older I began to see the social commentary in some of those shorts. Saturday Night Live has nothing on those guys. The war time shorts were the best. Like the Warner Brother cartoons of the time they cut the Germans and Japs no slack.

I doubt the "violence" of the Stooges had no more effect on us than the video game violence of todays youth.
