Wacky Wednesday Comedy Special: Victor Borge and Robert Merrill in "Autumn Leaves"

Robert Merrill (born Moishe Miller in Williamsburg, Brooklyn) was an American operatic baritone and actor, who was also active in the musical theatre circuit. He received the National Medal of Arts in 1993.Victor Borge (born Borge Rosenbaum in Copenhagen, Denmark) was a Danish-American comedian, conductor, and pianist who achieved great popularity in radio and television.

So what did these musically talented and successful Jewish boys do when they got together? Comedy shtick, of course. In this undated video clip, Borge plays the introduction, Merrill starts to sing, and then the leaves begin to fall. Borge carries on while Merrill keeps a straight face. Hilarious.

Enjoy!
