Great Danes in Exile, Part 2 ? Victor Borge, Clown Prince of Denmark

by Norman Berdichevsky (May 2009)

The most well known, beloved and popular entertainer to combine humor and music was the Danish-American pianist Victor Borge who enchanted and delighted American and world audiences for three generations from the time of his arrival in the United States as a refugee fleeing German occupied Denmark in 1940 until his death in 2000. Known as The Clown Prince of Denmark, he drew upon the tradition of gentle and ironic satire used by another great Dane, Hans Christian Andersen.
