Irving Brecher and Groucho Marx
Irv Brecher was quick with a quip
his writing both witty and hip
He dotted "Go West"
with bon mot and jest
each gag "At the Circus" a pip
For radio wrote "Life of Riley"
his humor martini mixed dryly
A comic savant
like Oscar Levant
his rep as a writer's held highly
William Bendix reads "The Life Of Riley"
