Overview

Groucho And Me by Groucho Marx

With impeccable timing, outrageous humor, irreverent wit, and a superb sense of the ridiculous, Groucho tells the saga of the Marx Brothers: the poverty of their childhood in New York's Upper East Side; the crooked world of small-time vaudeville (where they learned to carry blackjacks); how a pretzel magnate and the graceless dancer of his dreams led to the Marx Brothers' first Broadway hit, I'll Say She Is!; how the stock market crash in 1929 proved a godsend for Groucho (even though he lost nearly a quarter of a million dollars); the adventures of the Marx Brothers in Hollywood, the making of their hilarious films, and Groucho's triumphant television series,You Bet Your Life! Here is the life and lunatic times of the great eccentric genius, Groucho, a.k.a. Julius Henry Marx.

This is hilarious and deeply entertaining. I read it in a day because I couldn't stop myself. It reads like a Marx Brothers' movie and most of the content sounds so ludicrous I have a hard time believing any of it! HAHA You must read this. Definitely worth your time.

Full of Groucho wisdom and wit. The style is completely Groucho, and I could actually hear his voice in my imagination as I read this book. This isn't really an autobiography, but more a collection of anecdotes from different periods of his life intermingled with lengthy and very entertaining tangents. The Marx Brother's work in film and vaudeville are certainly a part of this book, but it is not the focus. I recommend reading this in combination with Harpo Speaks. There is little overlap, and for the handful of stories that are found in both, it is interesting to see their reactions and perspectives.
