We are thrilled to announce that The Film Detective will be a content provider for Classic Couple Academy’s latest comedy course offering - The Three Stooges: A Crash Course!
A source of fun and “edutainment” available from the comfort of home, The Three Stooges: A Crash Course is a self-paced online experience through the 50+-year career of one of comedy’s most iconic acts - The Three Stooges. (And did we mention? It’s completely free!)
Perfect for Stooges fans both old and new alike, The Three Stooges course explores the history of each of the stooges members (fun fact - there were more than three!) and navigates from The Three Stooges’ early vaudeville days, all the way through short films, feature films, television, and cartoons.
The course breaks down the methods behind the eye-poking, knee-slapping madness through the principles of Stooges comedy and even dives into what was going on in show biz at the time of The Three Stooges, including popular vaudeville acts of the age and the evolution of television.
The Three Stooges: A Crash Course comes as the latest course offering for Classic Couple Academy.
