History of the Three Stooges
The Three Stooges are a trio of the greatest slapstick movie clowns of the 20th century. Curiously, they are a trio composed of six people — the initial Three Stooges trio in the movies were Moe, Larry and Curly, later Moe, Larry and Shemp, followed by Moe, Larry and Joe, and finally Moe, Larry and Curly Joe. The Three Stooges became famous for their work in movies, primarily in short features that showcased their slapstick comedy, as well as in feature films in their later years.
