Although their movie career at Columbia Pictures had come to an end in late 1957, their comedy shorts had been made available to TV stations beginning in 1958. Thus a whole new generation of kids were introduced to the Stooges, and they loved them. So the trio experienced a happy comeback.
He was dubbed "Curly Joe" and would star with Moe and Larry in several popular full-length features.
The "new" Three Stooges also began touring in 1958, and thus ended up in Lorain on July 31, 1960.
The Stooges performed in 4 shows that day, all for the price of 90 cents for an adult and 50 cents for a child.
If anyone out there was lucky enough to catch their show at the Palace, be sure to leave a comment!
