Celebrating our 15th Anniversary on the Web!

Our Tent was established in August, 2006 -- "Mighty oaks from little acorns grow"

Our original website was established on Apr. 25, 2000

"[Oliver Hardy played] in short comic film subjects produced by a company based in, of all places, Jacksonville, Florida." -- Laurence Maslon and Michael Kantor, Make 'em Laugh: The Funny Business of America

"Billy! Come and tell me about Babe in Jacksonville!" -- Stan Laurel's constant request to Billy Bletcher, Jacksonville co-star to Oliver Hardy (and voice of The Big Bad Wolf in Disney's Three Little Pigs)



Welcome to our online Tent! (What's a "Tent"? See the Sons of the Desert link below.) Scroll down to the dark-gray box below, and click on the appropriate button to go to any of our site's many features. Why, nothing could be simpler!

Special thanks to Tent member Carroll Hebbel for his creation of our Tent's logo (shown at above left), and to John Brennan of Laurel and Hardy Central for his invaluable contributions.

As befits its subject matter, this website is presented in glorious black-and-white. Death to colorization!!


The Leave 'em Laughing Tent is proud to support the Norman Studios Museum, a tribute to one of Jacksonville's silent-film studios and the only one to feature all-African-American casts. Click on the logo at left to learn more about the museum and how you can help them.
