Home | Vaudeville | The Leroy Trio
Groucho started his career at age 15 in this singing group by answering an ad in the New York Morning World. Their first engagement was in the Mid-West. He appeared in various costumes, including as a Chinese, an altarboy and in drag. In Colorado Leroy disappeared with the the other member of the trio, Johnny Morris, and left Groucho stranded. According to his memoirs he took a job delivering groceries in a horse drawn cart until Minnie sent him some money for his journey back to New York.
