The easiest way to ruin comedy is to psychoanalyze it. This book tries to do that to Groucho. Groucho wins. Skip this and read one of the many useful books about Groucho and his famous siblings.

If you are a fan of Groucho (or if you aren't) skip this mess. The writer seems to hate him and doesn't think the Marx Brothers are funny, doesn't get the jokes and goes out of his way to psychoanalyze the humor in the most negative light possible. Overpriced and, more importantly, BORING and pointless.
Aiming for subtle psychology, getting a 1-dimensional person

It's a truism of long standing that trying to analyze humor kills the humor (cf. Freud), so Lee Siegel's book doesn't hold any surprises in that direction. Trying to discuss the relationship of a performer (actor, musician, writer, dancer, public speaker, media commentator) with a persona created by that performer is a nightmare of blind alleys, analytic presumptions (presumptions both about the person being analyzed and the method itself of the analysis), wondering in fact who's creating whom, and the real, existential impossibility of nailing down any one-to-one cause and effect in how human beings do what we do, create ourselves internally and present ourselves to the outside world. For me the problems of Siegel's book are his assured presumption that he can get from Julius to Groucho using psychiatric shibboleths that to me are very tired; working on tenuous connections (at least connections tenuous by anything he describes in the text as support); and especially by presenting a rather uni-dimensional version of Julius/Groucho (how many people are uni-dimensional? I've never met one) for which he cherry-picks from particular occasions to stand in for life-long characteristics. The book isn't without interest, but the Groucho depicted here is pretty much a one-note cliché, the comic who wants to be something "higher" but for various reasons can't succeed in that. I wish Siegel had thought about his methodology and his own thinking as he was working on this book.
