There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
Based upon Dick Cavett's recommendation in his book "Brief Encounters", I bought this, along with the book of G.S. Kaufman's writings, "By George".
While I could take or leave the latter, The Groucho Marx book is more to my taste, parts are hysterical, and much of the book contains personal anecdotes that resonate decades later.
IMHO of the two, Groucho was the more entertaining writer.
(Cavett's book wasn't bad either)
Groucho, Jack Benny, Burns & Allen, Lenny Bruce, Charles Chaplin, Jonathan Winters, Buster Keaton, W.C. Fields, Woody Allen, Jackie Gleason, Sid Ceasar, Peter Sellers... make any list you like... I believe you'll find Groucho at or near the top. Future comics and humorists, you must absorb every bit of the wisdom of all these geniuses that you possibly can. Read, enjoy and prosper!
