After vaudeville, before Hollywood, the Marx Brothers were the toast of Broadway, where I’ll Say She Is, The Cocoanuts and Animal Crackers established the team as the darlings of the New York smart set and the preeminent jesters of the Jazz Age. In this multimedia presentation, noted Marxist NOAH DIAMOND takes us back in time to witness the birth of modern American comedy.
