The Wicked Wit of the West! With Hank Rosenfeld
The Wicked Wit of the West! With NPR Storyteller Hank Rosenfeld
NPR storyteller Hank Rosenfeld recounts tales from the remarkable life of Jewish funnyman Irving Brecher in The Wicked Wit of the West! Aided by rare film footage and audio clips, Rosenfeld tells the real-life story of Brecher, who wrote At the Circus and Go West for the Marx Brothers, the classic musicals Bye Bye Birdie and Meet Me in St. Louis, created TV's first sitcom with The Life of Riley, and was thrown out of hotels with Groucho Marx from West Virginia to Wyoming. A contributor to public radio's All Things Considered, Marketplace, Weekend America and Off-Ramp, Rosenfeld spent seven years sharing pastrami sandwiches with "Irv the Nerve" (aka The Wicked Wit of the West) and co-wrote a book about his life. An audience Q&A session and book signing will follow the performance.
