Ferrante the Grouch

An Evening With Groucho

The Marx Brothers remain one of the most brilliant comedy teams of all time. Coming out of vaudeville, the Brothers were as adept at lightning-fast comedic wordplay as they were at physical comedy. Chief among the pranksters was Groucho, whose rapid-fire one-liners (frequently directed at long-suffering foil Margaret Dumont) are legendary. Groucho himself may have passed on in 1977, but actor Frank Ferrante has been keeping his spirit alive in his one-man show, An Evening With Groucho . Ferrante performs as Groucho, regaling the audience with tales of his life and times and throwing in a few of Groucho's signature tunes. Ferrante will dance with you till the cows come home. On second thought, he'd rather dance with the cows till you come home.
