He was a riot, loved all his stuff. I watched it, but left the sound down for now. Didn't want to wake Steve up with me rolling down the hallway. Thanks.

That's one of my favorite bits of comedy! Comedians today aren't nearly as creative as the classics! Thanks for the wake-up laugh!

My wife and I watched a special on PBS just last night featuring Victor Borge. I had always enjoyed his performances. According to Wikipedia he did up to 60 shows a year even at age 90. We lost this talented man at age 91 in December 2000.
