In 1923, he formed the vaudeville act accompanying Ted Healy that would later become the Three Stooges. The men went on to make more than 200 popular comedy shorts featuring their characteristic brand of violent slapstick. How did Howard come by his trademark bowl-shaped haircut? More...

Moses Harry Horwitz (June 19, 1897 – May 4, 1975), known professionally as Moe Howard, was an American actor and comedian best known as the leader of The Three Stooges, the farce comedy team who starred in motion pictures and television for four decades. His distinctive hairstyle came about when he was a boy and cut off his curls with a pair of scissors, producing a ragged shape approximating a bowl cut.

No offence to Mo - the guy had to make a living - but I have never got this style of slapstick violence. Because it is violence. I have only seen a little bit, and I am aware of its place in American film culture, but I have no desire to see more. What is funny about poking someone in the eye, or hitting them over the head? I love comedy, including verbal and physical, but this just doesn't do it for me. Maybe I am a bit sensitive, as a glasses wearer? But that may be overthinking it. I think it is just bullying and tasteless. Just doesn't do it for me, at all.
