The Stooges are back at the Riviera Theatre

Niagara Gazette — Saturday’s Stoogefest at the Riviera Theatre, offering seven or so episodes featuring the Three Stooges and enough raffles, door prizes and comedy to keep the faithful — typically clad in Stooge regalia — laughing all night, is in its third year as a winter event.

It is also an outgrowth of the annual late summer production at the Riviera, now it its 22nd year. What started as a night of friends, videotape and pizza has grown into two highlights in the Riviera’s production season.

It is not unusual to see four generations of a family arriving together, ready to laugh at knockabout comedy, in some cases, produced 80 years ago. Within the easy-to-appreciate world of slapstick, no one does it more efficiently, or as fast, as Moe, Larry and Curly, and expect an episode featuring brother Shemp.

Admission is $10, $7 for knuckleheads under 12. The show begins Saturday at 7 p.m. with a workout on the Theatre’s mighty Wurlitzer organ; Moe throws out the first slap at 7:30. The Riviera Theatre is at 67 Webster St. in North Tonawanda; call 692-2113 for more information.
