Marx Brothers

The Marx Brothers were a product of the US vaudeville era, which produced some of the best comedy of all time.

The Viaduct dialog from "The Coconuts" is still one of the funniest word play skits I have ever heard.

To wit:

Groucho
You're a peach, boy! Now, here is a little peninsula, and here is a viaduct leading over to the mainland.
Chico
Why a duck?
Groucho
I'm all right. How are you? I say here is a little peninsula, and here's a viaduct leading over to the mainland.
Chico
All right. Why a duck?
Groucho
I'm not playing Ask-Me-Another. I say, that's a viaduct.
Chico
All right. Why a duck? Why a why a duck? Why a no chicken?


A HollyWood sycophant invites the Bro's over for a dinner party on Sunday night.

On Saturday afternoon Chico and Harpo decide to visit his house unannounced, and they meet his two hotty daughters.

The father comes home shortly and catches them making babies.

As Chico follows Harpo out a window he calls back to the father, "I hope this doesn't mean we're not still invited over tomorrow!"
