Victor Borge is by far the funniest piano player I've ever known in history. He's not very famous, but he was one hell of a comedian. I even have one of his collections on VHS. Here are some funny quotes he said:
"If I have caused just one person to wipe away a tear of laughter, that's my reward.... The rest goes to the government."
"I only know two pieces, one is 'Claire de Lune', the other one isn't."
"The difference between a violin and a viola is that a viola burns longer. "
Anybody else remember him?
