The handsome straight man of the Marx Brothers, Zeppo was the last to join the group and left at the height of their fame in 1933. The baby of the family, Zeppo (born Herbert) took to the stage after brother Gummo left the act in 1919. He toured with his older brothers Chico, Harpo and Groucho in vaudeville in the early 1920s. The quartet first gained national attention in the zany revue "Ill Say She Is" (1923-1925). Their long-running hit "The Cocoanuts" (1925-1928), written by George S. Kaufman with an Irving Berlin score, assured their stardom. During the run of "The Cocoanuts," they made the independently-financed comedy "Humorisk," which was never released and has been lost.
