This Stooge’s house is nothing to laugh at.

“Dead to Me” writer Liz Feldman and her wife, singer-songwriter Rachael Cantu dropped $4.75 million on a 1925 Spanish Mediterranean architectural gem that once belonged to comedy royalty: Larry of Larry, Curly and Moe in “The Three Stooges,” The Post can exclusively reveal. 

Larry Fine, known for his wild yet balding head of hair, lived in this stucco Los Feliz home at the height of his career from about 1941 to 1959 with his wife Mabel and their two children, Johnny and Phyllis. Before buying their stucco LA home, the Fines lived in hotels due to his wife’s dislike of housekeeping, according to IMDb

Columbia Pictures ended “The Three Stooges” movies in 1957, nearly forcing Fine into bankruptcy, according to IMDb — which may have contributed to Fine’s decision to sell the home with a terracotta-tiled roof and arched windows and doorways.
