August 12: Happy Birthday Joe Besser!

August 12: Happy Birthday to Joe Besser - the loveable comedian who got his start in show business at the age of 13 after running away from home to become a magician, but found his true calling in comedy.

Joe Besser (1907-1988) is best remembered for joining the Three Stooges after Shemp Howard passed away in 1955. Even before that Joe was well known for his lovable but very silly comic persona. Celebrate Joe's 105th Birthday by enjoying some of Joe Besser's radio appearances.


  1. The third third stooge.

  2. I believe he was also a neighborhood kid on the Abbott & Costello TV show. He seemed like he had escaped from Alice in Wonderland.

  3. Oh Youuuuuuuuuuuuu!!!!!
