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.

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 Punctuation" and "Inflationary Language" have made people laugh for decades. This video presents highlights from Borge's memorable performances.
