4.0 out of 5 stars Comic genius! 16 Jan 2011
Even though this dvd looks (and is) like an item thrown together in a hurry being two Thames TV programmes back to back on one disc - It doesn't detract from the comic genius that is Victor Borge.
If the production values were as good as the content this would be a five star item!!
Sadly modern comedy depends so much on the dark side of the human character being full of vitriol and sheer nastiness.
Watching Borge on stage is to be reminded of an age when comedy was craftsmanship and the ability to gently poke fun without over-stepping the boundaries of human decency.
Being an accomplished concert pianist himself allows Borge to play with his audience and a full concert orchestra proving himself to be one of the greatest comedians of all-time.
If only more of his material were available on dvd in European format!
Superb!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous! 24 Jan 2010
I have old videos of Victor, but they are inferior compared to this. It is hysterical. Old school humour that is pretty much dead and gone nowadays. Very clever, very sophisticated, and way ahead of it's time. Incredible feat to turn the pomposity of 'Classical' music on it's head and laugh out loud about it.
A masterpiece.Victor Borge - Live in Concert [DVD]

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally a Full Show 24 April 2010
As a collector and fan it is wounderful finally to see a full, unabridged show, with encore. I saw 10 live shows and the show was always a one hour show with an added hour of fun encores. So this is a true gem.

4.0 out of 5 stars Borge at his best 28 Feb 2009
For admirers of Victor Borge's offbeat and quirky sense of humour, this 2-DVD set is a must-have item. The musical skits, in which Borge is ably assisted by a coloratura soprano and (apparently) a member of the back-up team, are especially successful and enjoyable.

We've been fans of Victor Borge for years and years. He never failed to make us laugh. Perfect timing. Not a wasted word. His playing and his wit and his total command of an audience fascinated us. It was amazing how right up till the end of his professional life he could still sustain a one-man show.

Relive that experience Buy this DVD and see the man as he made his music and he will still make you laugh at the same time. This disc is a treasure.

3.0 out of 5 stars johnsview 22 July 2011
no problem with seller
just jumbled re-released clips, not well chosen, but at the price a nice reminder of the man, and of a time when comedy did not need to be noisy, vulgar or rushed

5.0 out of 5 stars A comic genius. 3 Jan 2011
I brought this DVD for my mother who had an old video of Victor Borge. She is a bit of an officinado of good music and says you can only bring comedy into it if your really good. This is a good all round "best of". If you appreciate quality comedy from a master of the piano, this is well worth it.

5.0 out of 5 stars victor borge
Victor Borge was a unique talent. As a young man, I thought of him as a highly sophisticated showman and that only a very talented pianist would be able to do what he did.

This is highly entertaining and quite funny. He is a master of music and yet has a witty charm that doesn't come across as arrogant like many comics today. Read more
