An Evening With Groucho is the title of a 1972 recording at New York City's Carnegie Hall of the last one-man show by American comedian Groucho Marx. Introduced by Dick Cavett, the show was released as a double album by A&M Records.[1] Marx shared family and show business stories and performed songs from Marx Brothers stage shows and movies. Marvin Hamlisch performed an opening overture and accompanied Groucho on the piano.[2] In 2018, the recording was selected for preservation in the National Recording Registry by the Library of Congress as being "culturally, historically, or artistically significant."[3]
