You Bet Your Life is an American comedy quiz series that aired on both radio and television. The original and best-known version was
hosted by Groucho Marx of the Marx Brothers, with announcer and assistant George Fenneman. The show debuted on ABC Radio on October 27, 1947, then moved to CBS Radio
debuting October 5, 1949, before making the transition to NBC-TV and NBC Radio on October 4, 1950. Because of its simple format, it was possible to broadcast the show
simultaneously on radio and television. The last episode in its radio format aired on June 10, 1960. On television, however, the series continued for another year,
debuting in its final season on September 22, 1960, and with a new title, The Groucho Show. Gameplay on each episode of You Bet Your Life was generally secondary to
Groucho's comedic interplay with contestants and often with Fenneman. The program was rerun into the 1970s and later in syndication as The Best of Groucho, making it
the first game show to have repeat episodes enter the syndication market.
