Two Legends In One Laugh-Filled Collection
Comic greats REDD FOXX and GROUCHO MARX headline this hilarious double bill of old school style stand-up comedy, performed live in front of a studio audience.
Taped shortly before he became the star of the hit TV series Sanford & Son, Redd Foxx chain smokes as he ribs a mixed audience with a politically incorrect routine of jokes about poverty, race relations, slavery, the Vietnam War, women and dwarves.
Sporting his trademark cigar and deadpan delivery, Groucho Marx interviews members of the audience and answers questions pitched by announcer Ed Jordan about his long comic career as one-third of the manic Marx Brothers, stars of such classic films as Duck Soup and A Night At The Opera.
Gone but not forgotten, Redd Foxx and Groucho Marx live and laugh again in these vintage performances of two true comedic giants.

Top Customer Reviews
The show seems to be early 1970s or late 1960s.
Foxx (shown pre-Sanford and Son) does some great material on many subjects (including race.) Pretty G rated stuff, which is fun to see from a notoriously raunchy comic.
Groucho doesn't really inspire lots of laughs during a monolouge about his daily routine, but is rather funny as he takes questions from the audience.
Each episode is about 30 minutes long.
The DVD also has about 10 minutes of footage of a much younger Marx on the TV show Hollywood Palace.
Redd's episode was better and was at least funny. But it still seemed more like someone practicing a bunch of jokes in a row, rather than a polished routine.
