Victor Borge, born Børge Rosenbaum, was a great entertainer, a humorist and world-class pianist. Known as the Great Dane and the Clown Prince of Denmark.

He was born in Copenhagen, Denmark on the 3rd of January 1909, and educated at the Royal Danish Academy of Music. In the 30'ies he became one of Denmark's greatest musician, staring out as a classical pianist, but soon developing his very own style of music and humor.

In 1940 he moved to America, and even though he didn't speak any English at all, he soon managed to translate his jokes for the American audience, and he had his first perfomance in the States in 1941 at Bing Crosby's radio show.

Victor Borge became American Citizen in 1948, and got his own show "Comedy in Music" a few years later.

In 1993 he recieved a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Victor borge died on the 23rd of December 2000 in his home in Greenwich, Connecticut, USA.
