Happy Birthday to Joe “Curly” DeRita! Born July 12, 1909 During World War II, DeRita joined the USO, performing through Britain and France with such celebrities as Bing Crosby and Randolph Scott. Best known as the second Curly in the Three Stooges.
Fucking seriously? - Left on a nun’s doorstep, Larry, Curly and Moe grow up finger-poking, nyuk-nyuking and woo-woo-wooing their way to uncharted levels of knuckleheaded misadventure. Out to save their childhood home, only The Three Stooges could become embroiled in an oddball murder plot…while also stumbling into starring in a phenomenally successful TV reality show.
Let me tell you about Moe Howard. Moe Howard was a god damn badass. Motherfucker ended up breaking a few ribs and suffering a concussion after this stunt. If you look close enough you can see the pain on his face when his ribs cracked. But he gets up, delivers his line, before eventually passing out.
Meanwhile, I stub my toe on the door frame and I’m down for the count.
