Screenwriter, Playwright, Author. The son of legendary comedian Groucho Marx, he was exposed to the entertainment industry at an early age, as he toured with his father and uncles on the vaudeville circuit. He would be raised in Hollywood after Groucho began his film career and became an accomplished tennis player, as he was a member of the 1939 Junior Davis Cup Team. Following service with the US Coast Guard during World War II, Marx launched his own career in entertainment as a scriptwriter, beginning with "Blondie in the Dough" (1947) and followed it with several shorts. During this period, he penned his first novel "The Ordeal of Willie Brown" (1951) and had a best seller with "Life With Groucho" (1954); Its sequel "Son of Groucho" was published in 1972. From the 1960s into the 1970s he found his niche as a story contributor to numerous popular TV comedy series, among them "McHale's Navy", "Petticoat Junction", "The Mothers-In-Law", "My Three Sons", "All in the Family" and "The Paul Lynde Show". In addition Marx collaborated with Robert Fisher on the successful Broadway play "The Impossible Years" (1965 to 1967), as well as scripts for several Bob Hope feature films, among them "A Global Affair" (1964), "I'll Take Sweden" (1965), "Eight on the Lam" (1967) and "Cancel My Reservation" (1972).
