A vaudevillian comic and singer who later became a tough-talking, cigar-chomping supporting player in films, Ted Healy may be best recalled in show business history as the man who devised an act that would later spawn The Three Stooges. He has subsequently gone from being the headliner they supported to being a footnote in story of The Stooges.
