Victor Borge Classic Collection

( 6 )

Overview

The comic concerts of the late Victor Borge, an accomplished classical pianist and droll comedian, were full of hilarity and brightness. The mischievous Dane cracked jokes, made faces, delivered parodies and spoofs, read sheet music upside-down, and fell off the piano bench -- maintaining a wacky dignity while meticulously performing works by eminent composers. Borge's lighthearted presentations made classical music accessible to a wide range of listeners, and his non-musical word-play sketches such as "Phonetic ...

    Better than any antidepressant on the market

    I bought this for my father, and we put it on for the whole family to watch. I do not remember the last time I saw so much laughter in one place. I did not think that the kids would like it, but even my 10 year old stayed through the whole show. Victor Borge is a comedy genius that only comes along once in a lifetime; and though he is not longer with us, thank God he lives on through these DVD's and is still making us laugh! If you need a pick me up around the Holidays, this is your answer. I would recommend it to anyone. It is good clean hysterics as only Borge could deliver for the whole family young and old! Nice that someone can still make us laugh without using profanity.<BR/><BR/>I do not know how you can sell 6 DVD's for this unbelievable price, but all I can say is THANK YOU!
