Victor Borge, We Hardly Knew Ye

I stumbled upon the Rainer Hersch thing yesterday, and a quick search on his name led me to a show review from the Edmonton Fringe. (Who knew Edmonton was such a cultural hotspot? Or that Edmonton and “hot” would ever be used in the same sentence?) Turns out, he does a Victor Borge tribute, which basically sounds like he rips off Borge’s best jokes. Ah well, as a misogynist old bastard once said, “great artists steal”, and if you’re gonna steal, steal from the best.

orge, who died Dec. 22, 2000, at the age of 91, put it best when he said: “Nothing brings people together quicker than laughter … except perhaps the reading of a will.”

– I wish to thank my parents for making it all possible … and I wish to thank my children for making it necessary.

– He was happily married — but his wife wasn’t.

– Santa Claus has the right idea: Visit people once a year.
