- Three Stooges
a US comedy act popular from the 1930s to the 1960s made up of three comedians who appeared in films and on television using slapstick comedy (= a type of humour based on people hitting each other, falling over, etc.). The original characters were called Larry, Moe and Curly, although the actual comedians who played them changed over the years.

In 1928 the brothers added Larry Fine (1911–74) to the act, which appeared in Broadway revues. After Shemp left the act (1930), he was replaced by his brother Curly (1906–52). They appeared in several feature films, and in 1934 they began a series of comedy shorts that numbered more than 200 when they ceased in 1958. Their films were characterized by violent slapstick.
