Watch Groucho Marx Get Completely Freaked Out with Hilarious Results

It is a terrific show, entirely because of Groucho's improvisational talent. Also, his producers were skilled at finding contestants who would bring out the best in Groucho.

Here's one of the very best, a man who calls himself Albert Hall. His protruding eyes are like gasoline on the fire of Groucho's comic genius and the results are pretty hot stuff.
