The UK version of the Three Stooges

The Three Stooges were an American vaudeville and comedy act of the early to mid–20th century best known for their numerous short subject films. Their hallmark was physical farce and extreme slapstick. In films, the stooges were commonly known by their first names: "Larry, Moe and Curly".

Today the trio have been re-born in the UK, however they now perform out their dated act on the TV’s and even YouTube. Physical farce has been replaced with argument and contradiction based on a complete disregard for reality.

With the original Stooges you knew that you could not possibly find three people that stupid. But these new guys really make you believe that they are sharing a brain cell.

The good news is that because of lack of interest and falling viewing figures that the shows are going to get the chop and at least one of the trio will be leaving the act within the next week.

I’ve found a training video that the three used to put the act together:- Enjoy
