Good one!
29 June 2005 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

The Three Stooges has always been some of the many actors that I have loved. I love just about every one of the shorts that they have made. I love all six of the Stooges (Curly, Shemp, Moe, Larry, Joe, and Curly Joe)! All of the shorts are hilarious and also star many other great actors and actresses which a lot of them was in many of the shorts! In My opinion The Three Stooges is some of the greatest actors ever and is the all time funniest comedy team!

One of My favorite Stooges shorts with Shemp is none other than Bedlam in Paradise! All appearing in this short are Philip Van Zandt, Vernon Dent, Sylvia Lewis, Symona Boniface, Judy Malcolm, Sam McDaniel, Marti Shelton, and Victor Travers. Van Zandt has a great performance and so does lewis. There are so many funny parts here. This is a very hilarious short. There is another similar Three Stooges short like this one called Heavenly Daze and I recommend both!
