With his trademark schnoz, black rimmed glasses, oversized mo and cutting humor, Grouch Marx remains a comedy icon for generations. But who was the man? Grandson Andy Marx will share his memories and insights about his famous grandfather.
Andy is also an award-winning writer and photographer, whose written work has appeared in Variety, The Hollywood Reporter, The Wrap, Billboard, The Los Angeles Times, Forbes, The Wall Street Journal, Entertainment Weekly, Premiere and Movieline, among others.
He is the co-founder and editor-in-chief of the popular comedy website, Hollywood & Swine, which is known for its lampooning of the entertainment industry.
