Victor Borge (BÝrge Rosenbaum) was a Danish-American
humorist, entertainer and pianist, affectionately known as the Clown
Prince of Denmark and the Great Dane.
Even though Borge didn't speak a word of English upon arrival, he
quickly managed to adapt his jokes to the American audience, learning
English by watching movies. He took the name of Victor Borge, and, in
1941, he started on Rudy Vallee's radio show, but was hired soon after
by Bing Crosby for his Kraft Music Hall.
Death: December 23, 2000 (aged 91)
Borge died in Greenwich, Connecticut, after more than 75 years of
entertaining. He died peacefully, in his sleep, the day after returning
from a concert in Denmark.
