Description - The Essential Groucho by Stefan Kanfer

'No, Groucho is not my real name, I'm just breaking it in for a friend. . . ' Groucho was the linchpin of the Marx Brothers, the brilliant comic act that emerged from New York to conquer the vaudeville circuit, Hollywood and then the world by the end of the 1920s, and remains one of the most unique and influential figures in the history of comedy. From early stage scripts to complete screenplays, from magazine articles to fascinating personal correspondence, via books, greedy banks, even greedier lawyers and the coming of television, the writings by, for and about Groucho marx collected here are an indispensable introduction to the essence of a comic genius. 'His outrageous, unsentimental disregard for order will be equally funny a thousand years from now' - Woody Allen
