Which U.S. president shared a first name with one of the Marx Brothers?
Chester A. Arthur
The Marx Brothers were a family comedy act that gained popularity in vaudeville, on Broadway, and in motion pictures. They are widely considered to be among the greatest and most influential comedians of the 20th century. The Marx Brothers were Leonard (Chico), Adolph (Harpo), Julius (Groucho), Milton (Gummo), and Herbert (Zeppo). The stage names of the brothers were coined by monologist Art Fisher during a poker game based both on the brothers’ personalities. As Fisher dealt each brother a card, he addressed them, for the very first time, by the names they kept for the rest of their lives.
The correct answer is Herbert Hoover.
