Who is the best of The Three Stooges?
Take the poll, and cast your vote!
Happy Friday, everyone!
The Boss Stooge, Moe.
Moe is their leader!
I voted Curly because Moe was not an option.
Curly, ya knucklehead.
My favorite was Curly. The butt of most jokes and almost always came back smiling/laughing. Nyuck, nyuck
Larry was a great straight man
Moe was just Moe.
Indivually I don’t think they would have been as funny.
With the exception of Curly, I agree.
Curly taught Chuck how to duckwalk, and he also invented the beetles
Larry. He was the "intellectual" and a real musician.
I can think of three of them off the top of my head but my honest answer would violate forum rules.
Love me some Curly (NOT Curly Joe), but when it comes to the Stooges, Moe is the straw that stirs the drink.
Check out these handsome lads!
There was no show without him.
I loved em’ all, but Curly had a level of belligerent, willful intensity that was unmatched by his partners.
Shemp was the original, but left to pursue more serious roles ...
He was underrated ...
Curly was amazing ...
Moe also ...
My wife thinks Shemp is > Curly, but then she's a girl....
I might have voted for Moe too - he was extremely funny especially when he became the victims of the other Stooges' incompetence, then how he would retaliate.
Larry was the thinking man's stooge.
Even though most people will pick Curly, there should still be a category for Shemp, who was a Stooge before Curly. When Curly had a stroke, the Stooges were in a bind and Shemp stepped up for brothers Moe and Curly. It was hoped that Curly would recover, return and Shemp would resume his solo career, which was going pretty well. No one could come close to Curly, it's like trying to replace Keith Moon, it couldn't be done. (I'm talking about both men in their primes). That's not to say there weren't some good Shemp Stooges shorts, the problem is there are a lot of not so great ones due to Columbia slashing the budgets for short comedies but wanting to keep pumping them out like always when many were remakes or just poorly done.
Oh well, I'm just glad there was a Three Stooges because I've had a lifetime of enjoying them.
I always thought Larry would have been the drummer. He's very Ringo-esque
Larry. He's the Ringo of the Stooges.
