Hello! I'm Katie. Welcome to my site on Tony Slattery, Kids in the Hall, Nirvana, Three's Company, and the Three Stooges. Be sure to check out my Nirvana page if you're a fan of theirs. I listed all 190 of the Three Stooges' film shorts, 8 movies, and 3 TV movies. My Kids in the Hall pages have some interesting stuff with Dave Foley, Bruce McCulloch, Kevin McDonald, Mark McKinney, and Scott Thompson. My Three's Company page has pictures, my thoughts on the show, downloads, and other stuff. Enjoy, and please feel free to sign my
guestbook. I'd like to hear what you think of my site. Thanks for visiting!
Dec 6 2001: I added a tribute page to George Harrison. To see it,
Tony Slattery is best known to most Americans as one of the main contestants on the UK version of Whose Line is it Anyway? He has also been in a number of films, including Peter's Friends, Heaven's a Drag, The Crying Game, and How to Get Ahead in Advertising, just to name a few.
I first became interested in Mr. Slattery after watching his brilliant performances on Whose Line is it Anyway? and though he is considered the rudest performer, I found him to be outright hilarious! If you have never had the priviledge of watching him in action, I am willing to make tapes for my viewers, if you email me and give me instructions. Click Here for Tony Slattery quotes, other Tony Slattery moments, and movies Tony has appeared in.
A little more about Tony Slattery:
He stands at 5'11, and he is the youngest of five children, born Anthony Declan James Slattery on November 9, 1959. He has triplet brothers, Christopher, Michael, and Stephen, and a sister, Marlene. Since his brothers were in their own little group and his sister was so much older than he was, he had a lonely, but happy childhood. He invented a friend made up of pajamas and called it "Fred." Tony went to Gunnery Boy's Grammar School and won a scholarship to study medieval and modern languages at Cambridge. He was introduced to theatre there and he was invited by Stephen Fry (whom he later co-starred with in the 1992 movie
Peter's Friends) to join the Footlights Dramatic Club. He was named president of the Footlights in 1982. He stopped becoming an academic when, "Getting up on stage and hearing laughter took over."
He made his first appearance on Whose Line is it Anyway? in 1988. For the seven seasons he was on, he was known as the usual featured performer in the game "Party Quirks," where he was the host of a party, and the other three contestants would arrive at the party, after being given a strange way of behaving, or quirk. Tony would have to guess what the others had come as. Some quirks include:
-a sperm (Ryan Stiles)
-someone experiencing too much gravity (Ryan)
-a Jewish mother (Greg Proops)
-a penis (Josie Lawrence)
-someone who thinks he has arrived in an 19th century whore house (Mike McShane)
-someone who has come to ride Tony's camel (Ryan)
-a Columbian Drug Dealer (Rory Bremner or Mike)
-someone on a roller coaster (Colin Mochrie)
One man, Rory Bremner, came to the party as Tony Slattery, mimicking his voice and how he walks. After figuring this out, Tony walks the same way as Rory and says sarcastically, "Ha ha ha! Ha ha ha!" He then looks straight into the camera and says, "I'm not playing anymore."
Tony was also known for his remarks to the host of the show, Clive Anderson. Usually when playing "World's Worst," he would imitate Clive by raising his shoulders to the back of his head to look as though he had no neck. He also consistantly made fun of Clive's receding hairline.
On one particular show, just before starting "Party Quirks," Tony said, "I'm just putting on my heavy-duty sunglasses incase Clive shows up without a hat."
After his final season on the show in 1995, Tony became clinically depressed, and confined himself in his flat for two years, after having dumped all of his furniture, including his refrigerator, into the Thames River. He had been working non-stop for 13 years. He still managed to visit his parents every weekend, and he would pretend nothing was wrong at all. He finally decided to see a psychiatrist, and he has not gone back into clinical depression since.
Tony was the rector of Dundee University from 1998 to 2000. One of the fields of research there is cancer, which claimed the life of Tony's father a few months before he became their rector.
Most recently, Tony has been on the 2005 British TV show Ahead of the Class, in which he plays Stuart Stiles.

The Three Stoges
The Three Stooges are known to the world as Moe Howard, Larry Fine, and Curly Howard. This line-up, however, was not the original. The Stooges first started out in vaudeville in the late 1920's. At that time, the act was known as "Ted Healy and his Stooges." Curly was not in the line-up at this time, but his brother, Shemp Howard, was. After Shemp left the act in 1932, it was then that Curly joined. After the Stooges left Ted Healy in 1934, they became known as The Three Stooges.
The Three Stooges made 190 film shorts for Columbia Pictures between 1934 and 1957. Between those years, the line-up changed three times. Due to health complications following a series of strokes, Curly Howard was the first to leave in 1947. He had made 97 film shorts with the Stooges. He made a cameo appearance in the Stooges' 100th short, "Hold That Lion." He died on January 18, 1952. He was 48.
Shemp Howard became part of the Three Stooges in 1947, following Curly's last short. Shemp was featured in 77 shorts during his time as a Stooge. On November 23, 1955, on his way home from a boxing match, Shemp was riding in the back seat of a car with his friend Al Winston. He lit up his cigar and sat back. Suddenly, he slumped over into Al's lap, burning him with his cigar. Shemp Howard had a heart attack and was dead at age 60.
The third incarnation of The Three Stooges consisted of Moe, Larry, and Joe Besser. Joe was featured in the last 16 film shorts of the Stooges' career. He was rarely ever hit by Moe, and Larry took most of the hits while Joe was in the group. This was part of an agreement, that Joe would replace Shemp, but Moe would not be allowed to physically hurt Joe. He had said before that slapstick was not his "cup of tea." After December 20, 1957, no more Three Stooges shorts were filmed. Columbia Pictures was the last filming industry to show film shorts.
After 1957, The Three Stooges had their fourth and final line-up. (Besser had left to care for his ailing wife, Ernie)There was Moe, Larry, and Joe DeRita, known as Curly-Joe. He was in all of the Stooges' movies. They had six movies of their own, and made cameo appearances in two other films.

The Farrelly Brothers were talking about making a Three Stooges movie back in March 2001. The movie would be based on the slapstick characters of Moe Howard, Larry Fine, and Curly Howard, and not a remake of any particular Stooge story.
According to the Farrelly Brothers during the Three Stooges 75th Anniversary, the movie will be ready for release by the summer of 2004. *It was NOT all realistical of what actually took place in their lives, unfortunately. [For instance, after Ted Healy died in 1937 (NOT 1936), Curly never said, "Ted Healy's not dead...he right here." (He looks at Moe.)]* (I know because I read the book The Three Stooges Scrapbook, co-written by Moe's daughter, Joan Howard-Maurer, so I know what I'm talking about.)You can order the new Three Stooges book by going to the official Three Stooges website.

Jack Lemmon (Photo is courtesy of the Associated Press)
February 8, 1925---June 27, 2001
The first time I ever saw Jack Lemmon on screen was in 1993 when my mother took me and my brother to see Grumpy Old Men. I honestly didn't think I was going to enjoy seeing this movie, but I gave it a chance. It was absolutely hilarious! I thought Jack Lemmon and the other star of the movie, Walter Matthau, had great chemistry together. After my mother bought this movie for us on VHS, we watched it over and over again.
The second time I saw a Jack film was in 1997 when my next-door neighbor went away for a few days. He left a box of old movies in his garage and said I could borrow any of them any time I wanted to. I didn't think there was going to be any movies I really wanted to watch, but as I was looking through them, I came across The Odd Couple. I heard this was supposed to be a really funny movie. I took it home, and I wasn't disappointed. I thought it was the funniest movie I had ever seen, as I had watched it SIX times that day! (Never before did I devote an entire day to watching a movie.) I had to own a copy of it for myself. When my neighbor returned, I thanked him and told him it was the funniest movie I had ever seen. After that, I became a Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau fan.
When Grumpier Old Men hit theaters, I had to go see it. It made me laugh just as hard as the first one did! Of course, I had to own this one as well, so I bought it after it was released on VHS. My family and I have watched it many times.
One day at Blockbuster, my mother noticed a movie called Out to Sea on the shelf. She said it was supposed to be a very funny movie. Of course it had to be! Matthau and Lemmon were in it! How can you beat that pair? They were, of course, extremely funny. Surprise, surprise.
What was really a surprise was in 1998 when the sequel to the Odd Couple came out. I didn't get to see The Odd Couple II when it was in theaters. I saw it two years later in June 2000 when my family and I were renting a house in North Carolina while on vacation. The owner left all of his movies for us to watch. Hey! He had The Odd Couple II there! How lucky! I forget how many times my brother and I watched it. After we came home, I bought a copy of it at Best Buy. My brother said, "Now I have to find something else to get you for your birthday." I had a feeling he was going to say something like that when I was buying it, but I couldn't wait seven months until my birthday!
Sadly, three weeks after I had finally seen The Odd Couple II, I got the news that Walter Matthau had died on July 1. I knew if his death would be hard for anyone (besides his family), it would be Jack Lemmon, his best friend. Jack responded to his passing by saying, "I have lost someone I have loved as a brother. We have lost one of the best damn actors we've ever had!"
Now, almost one year to the day, the second Grumpy Old Man has died. Just four days before the first anniversary of Walter's death, Jack has gone to join his best friend where they will never be parted again.
Jack was ironically buried on the anniversary of Walter's death, July 1, 2001.
I imagine it was hard on Jack Lemmon to lose his best friend, to watch him die. Now the two are reunited where they no longer suffer. Their pains and health problems are all behind them.
We are all saddened to lose yet another great actor, one who many of us have grown up loving, and one who others of us have grown to love over the past few years. Like Frank Sinatra, what Jack Lemmon has given us is immortal. He, too, will continue to gain millions of fans for many generations to come, and will never be forgotten by the millions of fans who miss him dearly.
YOU ARE LOVED AND MISSED BY ALL OF YOUR FANS!! WE WILL NEVER FORGET YOU!

Also includes two different pictures of me with two music legends: one of me and Felix Cavaliere (who was one of the lead singers of the Rascals, and an all-time favorite of mine), and one of me and Martha Reeves (Martha and the Vandellas)**There is also a photo album that I added in November 2004 of Riverfest!! It includes performances of the bands mentioned...Martha & the Vandellas, The Rascals, and Paul Revere and the Raiders! (Also includes "Goldy's Rock and Roll Review).** Goldy was a DJ who was laid-off in September 2004, and had been with the station since the beginning in 1993...My emails to the station NEVER go through!
4) Final Farewells--the one of two pages I don't mind not updating. It is basically a tribute to those late singers and actors who I admire. I pay tribute to the following on that page: Kurt Cobain, John Denver, Norman Fell, George Harrison, Phil Hartman, Jack Lemmon, John Lennon, Audra Lindley, Dean Martin, Walter Matthau, Lorenzo Music, Carroll O'Connor, Frank Sinatra, Layne Staley, and Jim Varney. Also includes Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau quotes

Includes: Buddy Ebsen, Irene Ryan, Redd Foxx, Bob Hope, Paul Lynde, Elizabeth Montgomery, Hugh O'Connor, John Ritter, Warren Zevon, Johnny Cash, Tony Randall, Marlon Brando, Ronnie Lane, Darrell "Dimebag" Abbott, and Dana Elcar
6) Fun with KITH--also known as my Kids in the Hall Fun Page, I have a section called "You might be a....", only it pertains to the Kids (Dave Foley, Bruce McCulloch, Kevin McDonald, Mark McKinney, and Scott Thompson). There's also some nice photos of them, along with interesting vocabulary that is KITH-related, the Kids' Hawaiian names, their Brain Candy characters and quotes, and some random stuff
7) George Harrison--my tribute to my favorite Beatle, whom I greatly miss
8) Homepage/Index--that's where you are right now. Land of Tony Slattery, Nirvana, the Three Stooges, the guestbook, webrings, the web polls, and tribute to Mr. Jack Lemmon
9) I Dream of Jeannie--tribute to this show. Find out how Jeannie drives Tony crazy & what Emmaline Henry did after she played Mrs. Bellows. Also find out what show Heidi Hagman was on (besides Dallas, of course)
10) Nirvana--tribute to the band, includes short biographies of David Grohl, Krist Novoselic and Kurt Cobain, and several pictures, including a couple that show a very compassionate side to Kurt Cobain where he is shown with cats. By popular demand, I added some photos of Francis Bean Cobain. There are now new photos of Frances as an older child posted! Also see Kurt's half-sister Brienn O'Connor as well as Jordyn Blum (Dave's wife)
11) KITH Info Page--titled "KITH page enjoy," it has information on all five members of the Canadian comedy troupe, the Kids in the Hall. It has a
NewsRadio link under Dave Foley, information on Bruce McCulloch's 1995 CD, Shame-Based Man, among other things. It also includes quotes, interesting facts, all the movies the Kids were in, pictures, and some "Gavin" downloads
12) Links Page--titled "Tony Links" from the site's very early days of being a Tony Slattery-only site, it now includes many varieties of links, especially where Kids in the Hall is concerned. From oldies to heavy metal to Barenaked Ladies (who I'm not really a fan of, but many of my friends are), and from a Drew Carey dance to Three's Company. As this is a site of variety, the links page is just as deverse. There are Paul Lynde links as well as Nirvana links. There are even links to some radio stations in the DC area. If you still have trouble deciding where to go from here, I highly recommend trying the trivia link. There is bound to be at least 1 or 2 catagories you'll like. I personally like the TV links and Music links
13) Paul Lynde--Tribute to the late comic. Includes quotes and a few pictures
14) Multiple Sclerosis--I added this one the last day of February 2003, although I was diagnosed in May of 2002. I am not a doctor. If you think you might have it, please see a neurologist. If you would like to read about how I learned about what I have, please click the above link. I have also listed the current treatments (Sorry, but currently they are all in the form of a shot.)
15) Three's Company--information and a tribute to the first show I ever watched in my life. Includes information on John Ritter (Jack Tripper), Joyce DeWitt (Janet Wood), Suzanne Somers (Chrissy Snow), Norman Fell (Stanley Roper), Audra Lindley (Helen Roper), Don Knotts (Ralph Furley), Jenilee Harrison (Cindy Snow), Priscilla Barnes (Terri Alden), Richard Kline (Larry Dallas), and Ann Wedgeworth (Lana Shields).

On my "WLiiA Tony on TV" page, I also have Tony quotes, other Tony Slattery moments, and pictures of the movies that Tony has been in.
17) Wecome Back, Kotter/ MacGyver--Great shows that used to both be on at midnight. TVLand pulled WBK off their schedule at the beginning of 2003 (I am still willing to make tapes for my viewers), but MacGyver is still on at 8:00am & 1:00pm during the week. MacGyver is at the bottom of the page.
