1Laughter is the shortest distance between two people.
2And I wish to remind you that the smile is the shortest distance between people, and the more we smile, the less we fight. Because to my knowledge, no one ever fought smilingly...and won. So not goodbye, then. Never goodbye. long.
3A woman complimenting me on my act one night told me she hadn't laughed so much since her husband died.
1Became a U.S. citizen after his move there, but remained popular in his native Denmark and often performed there.
2His Comedy in Music one-man show on Broadway reached 849 performances, the longest solo run in Broadway history.
3His son, Ron Borge, appeared many times on stage with his father as the timid page turner.

5Attended Øster Borgerdyd High School in Copenhagen, Denmark.
6Biography in: "Who's Who in Comedy" by Ronald S. Smith, pg. 57-58. New York: Facts on File, 1992. ISBN 0816023387
7He was the voiceover artist for the Heineken beer adverts in the UK during the 1970s. 'Heineken does this because it refreshes the parts other beers cannot reach.'
8He hosted the first US telecast of the Danny Kaye film, Hans Christian Andersen (1952).
9In 1953, he starred in the one-man Broadway production "Comedy in Music", with which he toured off and on until his retirement. This was a show in which Borge often announced he was going to play a piece, but seldom actually got around to doing it because of his hilarious comments to the audience. The show went through several editions over the years, but always retained some of the same comic remarks.
10Father of Frederikke Borge, Ronald Borge, Vebe Borge, Sanna Feinstein and Janet Crowle.
11He is the founder of the Thanks to Scandinavia Foundation.
12One of his famous skits involves "phonetic punctuation", in which he accents commas, question marks and periods with sound effects.
13Borge publicly derided Adolf Hitler in his native Denmark just before World War II. When the Germans invaded that country, he managed to escape to America because, since he was married to an American women, he got an American visa.
14Recipient of 22nd Annual Kennedy Center Honors for lifetime contribution to arts and culture, presented by President Bill Clinton in Washington, DC, Dec. 5, 1999.
