Award winning comedian Dave Young presents A NIGHT AT THE THEATRE With Groucho in a portrayal of the legendary comedian Groucho Marx, infamous for his outrageous anticts and star of stage and screen. He appeared in movies such as A Night at the Opera, A Day at the Races, Duck Soup and The Big Store to name but a few.
In this fast paced, ninety munutes of hilarity, this one man, two-act comedy consists of the best Groucho one - liners, anecdotes and songs, including Hooray For Captain Spalding and Lydia The Tatooed Lady.
The audience litterally becomes part of the show as Young ad-libs his way throughout the performance in fine Groucho style. Portraying the young man of stage and film fame, through to Groucho in his later years, we are reacquainted with Harpo and Chico his brothers and Groucho's favourite comedian Charlie Chaplin. A show perfect for all ages!
The Show in typical Groucho vernacular, maps the life and loves of this remarkable entertainer. The comedy combines music and laughter to chronicle the meteoric rise of Groucho from rags to riches.
A combination of wit, music, and fun in the company of Groucho Marx will make this an evening to remember.

The story of Groucho the performer and Groucho the Man
'Behind every successful man is a woman, behind her is his wife'
'I refuse to join any club that would have me as a member'
'I have had a perfectly wonderful evening, but this wasn't it'
Groucho Marx made twenty six movies, thirteen of them with his brothers Chico and Harpo. Groucho developed a routine as a wise- cracking hustlerwith a distinctive chicken - walking lope, an exaggerated greasepaint mustache and eyebrows, and an ever-present cigar, improvising insults to stuffy dowagers (often played by Margaret Dumont) and anyone else who stood in his way. As the Marx Brothers, he and his brothers starred in a series of popular stage shows and movies with their own unique style of deadpan humour, slapstick comedy and musical wit.
