Here are 10 things you should know about the legendary Groucho Marx, born 128 years ago today. He is, for our money, perhaps the funniest man who ever lived. We loved him while he was still with us, and we miss him dearly today.
We were sorry to hear of the passing of Phyllis Diller yesterday (though she did live to be 95, which is a nice, long run). Diller was a groundbreaking performer who helped to open doors for so many funny women who followed her.
And to help you get a strong start on the new year, we’re going to share a sweet deal with you (from which we benefit in no way, shape, or form — we’re sharing it with you out of the goodness of our hearts):
A three-disc YOU BET YOUR LIFE (starring Groucho Marx, don’t you know) boxed set can be had at the following URL for just $11.99 (list price is $39.99).
It’s a great deal on a delightful set of DVDs (which is now discontinued, so grab it while it’s hot).
