Rainer Hersch's VICTOR BORGE To Get London Premiere at Jermyn Street Theatre

Masterpiece Entertainment Ltd In association with Jermyn Street Theatre

Rainer Hersch’s Victor Borge

The man, the comedy and the music!

Victor Borge was a brilliant pianist, virtuoso comedian and once voted “the funniest man in the world” by The New York Times. During the 1960s he became the highest paid entertainer on the planet, loved by audiences worldwide. 

In the London premiere of this one-man show, his extraordinary life is retold and his hilarious act re-imagined for the 21st century by his natural successor, Rainer Hersch.  

Rainer Hersch’s Victor Borge - an hilarious tribute to one of the world’s greatest comedy entertainers – will play a four-week West End season at Jermyn Street Theatre from Tuesday March 6 - Saturday March 31. 

Press night is Thursday March 8 at 7.30pm

Rainer Hersch is well known to BBC radio and television audiences for his many appearances – including as a regular guest on Loose Ends, Quote…Unquote and, most recently, winner of a special celebrity edition of Counterpoint. He has appeared at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival 13 times and toured the world as a comedian, pianist and conductor.

More than just a tribute, Rainer Hersch’s Victor Borge is a rollercoaster ride of outstanding comedy and dramatic insight.  A hit on four continents, it has been greeted with critical acclaim and sold-out theatres from Montreal to Adelaide.
