Tonight: Join Us for a Special Program on The Marx Brothers and America

So honored and thrilled to be one of the guests in Noah Diamond’s second virtual presentation for Fredonia Marxonia, entitled There’s Nothing Like LIberty: The Marx Brothers and America. He’s a miracle worker, is Noah. It’d be tough indeed to top what he put together last year, but based on the description, I suspect he may do it. On the bill with us will be such eminences as screenwriter Scott Alexander (Ed Wood, Man on the Moon, Dolemite is My Name); the great Joe Adamson, author of the crucial Groucho, Harpo, Chico, and Sometimes Zeppo; Jane Margaret Laight and Reginald H. Pitts who are collaborating on a new biography of Margaret Dumont, our beloved Seth Shelden, Nobel Laureate, practicing attorney, law professor and once and future Harpo (in a show stopping segment I’m not allowed to leak), and a great many others.

The show streams live on October 1, 2021, at 7pm ET, right here:

Or just go to!
