One of the most successful comedy
the 1930s-1970s. The original line-up
was Moses Horwitz, Louis
Feinberg, and Sam Horwitz, better known
as Moe Howard, Larry Fine, and Shemp Howard. After performing in Vaudeville for awhile, Shemp went into the movie business, and was replaced by Moe and Shemp's brother Jerome 'Babe' Horwitz, who would become better known
as Curly Howard. The Three Stooges made many short
films together, most of them with
Curly, untill 1947, when he suffered a stroke
and was replaced by Shemp.
The stooges are considered one of the great masters of comedy
and are still much loved
to this day.
