(ca. 1940s-1950s)Vintage original 10-page handwritten comedy skit on 8 x 12.5 in. lined legal paper titled,“Kildare, Kinsey & Malone”. In the skit, Moe, Shemp and Larry pose as doctors delivering a series of puns and wisecracks.This may have been a stage routine, as the three are the sole characters represented and the patter, setups and punchlines are reminiscent of live comedy team writing.With writing on verso of 2-pages as well. Exhibiting age, wear, handling and some soiling. In vintage very good to fine condition. Provenance: From the estate of Moe Howard. $2,000 - $3,000
105. Moe Howard’s personally handwritten comedy sketch, possibly for an episode of The Three Stooges. (ca. 1960) Vintage original 6-page handwritten manuscript (written on front and back) on one 8.5 x 11 in. and two 8 x 12.5 in. pages.The handwritten document features referencing Curly Joe and also mentioning a sequel to the movie Pillow Talk.The sketch starts with “Music Colonel Boogey”, likely referencing the familiar “Colonel Bogey March”, a British march composed in 1914 by Lieutenant F. J. Ricketts (1881–1945), followed by action and dialogue among the Three Stooges.There is no reference to another actor or comedian so the comedy sketch is thought to possibly have been created for an episode of The Three Stooges Scrapbook, which never aired, or a Three Stooges stage show. Moe writes his name many times as a character within the draft.The script is filled with gags and the iconic trio’s signature slapstick. Exhibiting toning, age and minor handling. Retaining folds from transmittal and or storage. In vintage very good condition. Provenance: From the estate of Moe Howard. $1,000 - $1,500
