Episode 220 - MBSing with Jamison Webb - The Marx Brothers

From the podcast: MBSing

Wednesday, August 23rd, 2017

Jamison Webb started watching Marx Brothers movies as an ill-sleeping 7-year-old. Since then he's written sketches in their style (The Inappropriate ReMarx Brothers) and spotted their influence in other acts he loves (Stella) as well as becoming aware that they're like The Beatles of comedy: Their influence flows under everything thanks to some of the first comedy films translating the success of their vaudeville stage acts to the screen. All the brothers are broken down by their style and presence in the act (including Zippo and Gummo), some of their costars are discussed (Margaret Dumont), and some unlikely writers of unproduced Marx Brothers scripts are unearthed.

Notes:
Jamison on Your Stories re his Weezer fandom.
