The Essential Groucho, really does capture the essence of the Goucho comedy writing genius and provides an insight to some of his brilliant script writing. A thoroughly enjoyable read.

Sorry about the awful pun, there. Rest assured the book itself contains nothing as inane as that. Superb examples of his own wit as well as that of his writers abound in this very well researched and presented book. Of course there is a little duplication from other published works, but this one manages to pull together more than a few unknown pearls. The last section of supposed ad-libs from his TV show is worth the price alone. Danger - Genius at Work.

Format: Paperback
The only complaint I have is the book is too short. A wonderful collection of scripts and tales. The Groucho letters chapter illustrates the genius of the man.

Highly recommended for anyone who has laughed at A Marx Bros scetch
