Loved it!   ;D  You've got to be a hell of a musician if your comedy bit is based on classical music!

It's probably linked from these vids, Moore also did a totally mean impression/parody of Peter Pears (with "Britten"/English folk song).
Tout le malheur des hommes vient d'une seule chose, qui est de ne savoir pas demeurer en repos, dans une chambre.

I loved Peter Cook and Dudley Moore (especially their 'Thunderbirds' sketch) but also Dud's jazz piano, as in 'Sooz Blooz' here (he was married to the actress Suzy Kendall at the time):

Hadn't watched that video before now.  That was brilliant! I didn't know that he was a talented organist, etc.!  I remember him from the movie Arthur:)

Jeffrey,  thanks for that jazz link.

That was hilarious!  Let's not forget this gem too!

Love Victor Borge!  Don't recall watching that one before; thanks for posting it!

Do you recall his skit in which he reads from a book....and I won't give away how it goes (for those who haven't watched it before).

Nope - so post a link! I don't know him that much but love everything I've seen.  I especially like his naturally annoyed expression that is perfect for comedy, but he has obviously genuine talent.   Another funny one is Mr Bean conducting:

There are lots of him doing music skits and they're all funny which is quite amazing since most of his humor is nonverbal expressions.

Since it's not about music, I realized that I shouldn't post it here.

Check your PMs though.
