Groucho Marx was an American comedian, singer, actor, host and writer. For almost 70 years, he spread laughter with his quick wit and hilarious one-liners. He began his career as a singer, but later switched to comedy. He is known as one of the greatest comedians of recent times.
Groucho is instantly recognizable by his trademark cigar, big nose, glasses and mustache. His appearance inspired the creation of the very famous novelty known as “Groucho glasses”.
Groucho Marx passed away just three days after Elvis Presley. Elvis’ death created such a furor in the media that very little attention was given to the death of this great comedian.
