James P. Colias Imagine being in the company of one of the world’s greatest musical comedians for a quarter of a century. That’s what Jim Colias had the good fortune to do when he was the personal assistant to Victor Borge, traveling with him, working with him and managing many aspects of Borge’s professional and personal life. Colias came to that position through a life-long friend of Borge’s, the Danish pianist Gunnar Johansen, who was the first Artist-in-Residence in Music at any school in America and a performer who produced more than 140 albums of piano music.
