THE VICTOR BORGE SHOW/NBC/1951
*(Victor Borge) Victor Borge, a Danish entertainer who hosted this comedy variety series in the early days of television. He was born Borge Rosenbaum in Copenhagen on January 3, 1909. While touring in Finland in 1940 (part of his act satirized Hitler), the Nazi's took over his country of Denmark forcing him to relocate to America where he soon became a regular with Bing Crosby on THE KRAFT MUSIC HALL. Examples of his humor: "To be honest with you, I only know two numbers. One is "Claire De Lune," and the other one isn't." or "I will now play Rachmaninoff's "Second Piano Concerto." Number two. It is by Rachmaninoff, who also wrote the music. It's for piano and a concerto."
