Episode 14: Look at Chicolini

In our fourteenth episode, we focus for the first time on one Brother in particular. He may look like an idiot, and talk like an idiot, but don't let that fool you -- he really is the most mysterious and elusive of the three, four, or five Marx Brothers. Trav S.D. (No Applause - Just Throw Money, Chain of Fools, Travalanche) joins the panel to shoot the breeze about shooting the keys.

Official description: "We are joined by writer/performer/bon vivant Trav S.D. for an in-depth analysis of the world of Chico. We examine his strengths, weaknesses, contradictions and roller skating. Is he the most underrated of the three, or the most overrated of the four? And where does he fit alphabetically…you’re going to be surprised. Along the way we’ll enjoy some classic piano and misquote our favorite lines."
