I've always loved Victor Borge.  Great musical and comedic talent presented with good humor and a certain sweetness.

Thanks for that, my wife & son & I ate our lunch with the macbook on the table watching a bunch of those Borge clips.  Classic stuff.

Borge was always fun.


I liked Oscar Levant too.


This isn't as clever (screen writers), but I like both the piece and the performance a lot. The visual humor doesn't start until about two minutes in.
