Bobcat Goldthwait is inspired by Groucho Marx

Bobcat's Big Ass Show

Bobcat Goldthwait may be an unlikely game-show host, but he gives it his all with “Bobcat’s Big Ass Show,” which premieres tonight at 10:30 on FX. Goldthwait’s inspiration for the series came from the decidedly less hyper Groucho Marx. “I was reading Groucho’s book of letters,” Goldthwait told EW Online. “He wrote that he was tired of having to answer questions and wanted to ask the questions instead, which is why he did ‘You Bet Your Life.’ I had just read this when the show’s producers called me up. I said, ‘I don’t know what the hell kind of weird-ass karma this is, but I’ll take the hint.'” (For more on Goldthwait’s show, see Tonight’s Best TV.)
