Funny Marx Brothers clips

Some of my first exposure to comedy was my dad showing me Marx Brothers movies (he's a huge fan of theirs). Some fun clips...

The stateroom scene from "Night at the Opera":



A scene from "A Day at the Races":



Girl: I've never been so insulted in all my life.
Groucho: Well, it's early yet.


Love that. More quotes from "A Day at the Races."

The contract negotiation skit from "A Night at the Opera" is a classic.

Groucho: It's all right, that's in every contract. That's what they call a sanity clause.
Chico: You can't fool me, there ain't no sanity clause.


Can't find the video anywhere though.

Also, I remember this great scene at the horse track in "A Day at the Races" where Groucho and Chico are making a deal and keep selling each other the same book back and forth. Can't find that either but I remember it being my fave thing in the world when I was like ten years old.

My dad also looooved Steven Wright so we'd always get together and watch his HBO specials when they were on. And then Wright became the first standup I ever saw in my life when he gigged at my college.

I'd argue that my dad has pretty good taste in comedy...but then again he also loved Rita Rudner. Hmm.
