Groucho Marx, born Julius Henry Marx (October 2, 1890 – August 19, 1977), was an American vaudeville and movie comedian. He is most famous for his appearances with his brothers Chico, Harpo, and Zeppo as the Marx Brothers.
As a young Jew growing up in Manhattan, Julius Marx and his four brothers — Leonard (Chico), Arthur (Harpo), Milton (Gummo), and Herbert (Zeppo) — followed their uncle's footsteps into vaudeville. Each brother developed a characteristic stage persona; for example, Groucho wore a greasepaint moustache and smoked a fat cigar in imitation of a college professor, while Harpo rarely said anything except through a horn.
