The Marx Brothers revolutionized the world of comedy. From vaudeville to Broadway to film, they made millions laugh with classics like Animal Crackers, Duck Soup and A Night at the Opera. Dubbed by The New York Times as “America’s most gifted funny man,” Groucho is today considered the father of modern comedy whose influence extends from M*A*S*H to Jerry Seinfeld to Woody Allen. Irreverence, satire, social commentary filtered through ingenious physicality and wordplay are hallmarks of Groucho’s humor.
Throughout the 1950’s, television audiences rediscovered Groucho’s wit on You Bet Your Life. At 83, Groucho Marx accepted a special Academy Award for the “unequalled brilliant achievements” of the Marx Brothers.
