  1. Brilliant! I had forgotten how good Victor Borge was. I think I only saw him when I was quite young and I remember my mum saying how suave he was ! I might share this on my facebook page....

  2. Jenny, Victor Borge was always a great favourite of mine. I could watch these videos over and over again.

  3. He was great, thanks for sharing Valerie.

  4. Our public broadcasting stations still sometimes run some of his bits....and I spent a Saturday watching him on youtube a year or so ago. He could really make you laugh.

  5. "Clever, talented ... and funny."

    Yes, he absolutely was, Valerie!

    BRILLIANT video clip! And it just goes to show how talented he really was because in order to do the 'comedy', he had to be very proficient in playing the piano. The other gentleman was wonderful as well!

    Thanks for sharing, dear lady. Thoroughly enjoyed it!

    X to you and Joe

  6. I love the Hungarian Rhapsody. Never heard of Victor Borge. Thanks for the introduction.

    Greetings from London.

  7. Very talented and very entertaining!

  8. I remember watching him on TV with my dad and laughing til we could not catch our breath. I've seen him recently on PBS and apparently his humor is timeless. WE bought his DVD's and I am waiting for a nice rainy day to binge on Borge.
