Oh, OK, you got me. That's not the real lyric but if the Marx Brothers had got their hands on it, it might as well have been. Their stage show and film Animal Crackers bears all the hallmarks of their best material: high-speed, inspired absurdity and physical lunacy dedicated to the puncturing of pomposity (and bad puns). Indeed, should I be invited to describe their entire oeuvre, I would name it "Snook-cocking a gogo".
All that and Margaret Dumont too. You remember her - the gloriously long- suffering, stuffed sofa of a woman whose extravagant embonpoint and purse proved so alluring to Groucho in all his guises, in this case Captain Spaulding. Manchester Royal Exchange revived the show to tumultuous reviews and now they've lured Jean Challis to play Dumont's role of Mrs Rittenhouse. And just who is Jean Challis? Why, the voice of radio's late-lamented lunchtime request show Two-Way Family Favourites.
