I'm watching a What's My Line episode, and Victor Borge is on the panel. He's very funny! He sort of has the charm, in my opinion, of Fred Allen.

I think I watched this episode awhile back. I LOVE Victor Borge. He's one of my favorites of all times. Have you seen any of his stage routines? There are lots of them on YouTube.

I really don't know much about him besides the name. When I have time, I'll look him up on YouTube. In the meantime, if you want to create a thread and drop some of your favorite routines in there, I'd appreciate it!!

I was trying to find a good quality clip of the page turner routine, but they're all blurry and subtitled. I'll see what I can find.

The routine I was referring to starts at around 22:00. The following routine with Marilyn Mulvey is great, too. But watch the whole thing sometime if you can. He's hilarious. :D

They totally should have adopted the song they perform at the end for their theme.

I have to bump this, because I just saw it again, and think it's just the best.
