VICTOR BORGE AROUND AUSTRALIA
Danish composer, songwriter, entertainer and "comedian of the keyboard", Victor Borge made his American radio debut on the Bing Crosby show. He then created a one-man show "Comedy in Music" and made concert appearances throughout the USA and Europe, delighting audiences with his unique hybrid between stand-up and high art. Victor Borge takes the musical mickey out of the great composers in laugh-out-loud spoofs filled with his trademark double-takes and double-entendres. Invited time and again to Australian television, his Channel 9 appearances in the '80s and early '90s are legendary as he steals the show from Don Lane, Derryn Hinch and Ray Martin on both The Midday Show and A Current Affair. Interviews with Liz Hayes and footage from Sunday provide fascinating background to this showbiz legend.
