Groucho Marx and Bud Abbott's Birthday

Today marks the birthday of two very funny men. It was 125 years ago, on October 2 1890, that Groucho Marx of The Marx Brothers was born. It was 120 years ago, on October 2 1895, that Bud Abbott of Abbott and Costello was born. As a small tribute to both men, is one clip each of them in action.

First up is Groucho Marx as Rufus T. Firefly in The Marx Brothers' class film Duck Soup (1933). 




Next up is Budd Abbott with Lou Costello performing their famous "Who's On First" routine. The clip is from "The Actor's Home" of The Abbott and Costello Show in 1953
