Born in New York, Julius Henry `Groucho' Marx (1890 - 1977) was an American comedian and, some might say, stand-up philosopher.
Initially, Marx tried his hand at singing but proved "hopelessly average." Under his mother's guidance, he formed `The Marx Brothers,' with his siblings, Adolph, Leonard, Herbert, and Milton. Their breakthrough came in 1914 when, during a performance, a runaway donkey caught the audience's attention. On their return, Marx' quick-witted scolding won them over.
After a series of films, Marx pursued a solo career, appearing on TV, stage, radio, and the silver screen. In the character of Groucho, he created an iconic comic figure that is still imitated to this day.
