Watch It - Carpaccio at the Keys

While I can’t really say that I am a Marx Brothers fan, this piano performance by Carpaccio is pretty cool. From my perspective, the Marx Brothers are known more for their physical comedy and one-liners, their origins (like so many acts of the time) were in Vaudville where they started out as a musical act with the occasionally comedy. Well that morphed over time to just the opposite as they got more applause for their comedy than their music. It’s also an interesting little fact that the character of Groucho started out as a German school teacher. The war with Germany quickly changed Groucho into the character that we know and love tcday.
