The Perry Como Show
Perry Como's career started with a dare. The teenage owner of a barbershop had done some singing locally, but when his friends dared him to get on stage and sing a few songs with Freddy Carlone, he was offered a job. x000D Following touring, recording and a brief return to the barber business, Como went on to host his own radio show and sign a recording contract with RCA records where he would sell millions of albums.
This new Victor Borge television special features his recently rediscovered funniest and most memorable skits - a truly unparalleled collection of routines not to be missed. Included is rare archival footage from the "Andy Williams Show" and the "Perry Como Show" (not seen in more than 40 years!), a classic hilarious performance of "Phonetic Punctuation" with President Reagan and Speaker of the House Tip O'Neill in the audience, and touching, heartfelt reminiscences by Borge's five children of their favorite routines.
