Understanding the ‘Superstooge’

New bio gets inside the zany bald head of Curly

CurlyCurly: An Illustrated Biography of the Superstooge

By Joan Howard Maurer

Softcover, 400 pages ($19.95, Chicago Review Press)

Three Stooges fans will flip over this official biography of Jerome “Curly” Howard, the zaniest member of the slapstick trio whose high-pitched voice, shaven head and “nyuk-nyuk-nyuks” made him a comedy icon. Written by his niece (the daughter of head Stooge Moe Howard) and packed with more than 300 photos, it’s a treasure trove of rare information and insight into the career, family life and psychology of one of the most enduringly popular “knuckleheads” to ever stand in the Stooge spotlight.
