On this day in 1932, entertainer, Groucho Marx made his first radio debut. Groucho was without a doubt, intelligent and quick-witted in his impromptu comedy performances. If you’ve never had an opportunity to listen to one of his radio shows, you are in luck. They can be easily found with a little savviness on the Internet. You can also watch Groucho and his brothers (The Marx Brothers) in one of 13 feature films.
Groucho Marx can be seen in many newspaper and magazine advertisements for Blatz Beer out of Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The slogan read, “I’ve been to Milwaukee, I ought to know… Blatz is Milwaukee’s Finest Beer!”
He also did advertisements for New York’s Rheingold Beer in the 1950’s. The slogan read, “This chef’s specialty is Rheingold!”
