Sixty-three years before The Daily Show, 39 years before George Carlin’s Class Clown and 30 freaking years before Mort Sahl took to reading the Warren Report onstage, Groucho, Chico, Harpo and Zeppo Marx heaved 68-minutes’ worth of monkey wrenches at the war machine, many of which can still be heard grinding gears today. With biting satire, surreal physical comedy, Shakespeare-class wordplay and indescribable nonsense, the Brothers Marx fight the power so savagely that human civilization (not to mention the shared reality it presupposes) is severely bruised by the incidental blows.
