Hints aren't easy to think of for this question.

But I'll try to come up with some...

 

The thing all these performers have in common (for this question) involves comedy films.

 

And none of these folks actually appear in the films in question.

No, not physically in films, but the thing they all have in common does involve a certain set of actors.

 

More clues to come as needed (if I can think of any) but sometimes I do want to let the question sit a day or 2 or 3 before adding more clues, to give everyone a chance to see the question and try to guess (assuming that there are a lot of people looking at these posts and trying to guess) (or are there actually only the couple of you who are posting guesses?)

No...and not on postage stamps either.

 

Okay, another clue:

I said that the films they are connected to are comedies. Now I'll state that they're comedy shorts.

No, nothing political or anything like that.

 

I'll try to add another clue later or tomorrow.

 

But it's looking like this may be one where if you know it, you know it. And if not, no amount of clues will help short of eventually just giving the answer.

Hey, for all I know, maybe they did!

But no, that's not the answer...

 

But yes, just to keep it moving, I will say that it IS Three Stooges-related.
