Arthur Askey


Arthur Askey CBE (June 6, 1900 – November 16, 1982) was a prominent English comedian. His recording career included The Bee Song and his theme tune, Big-Hearted Arthur, (which was also his nickname). During the 1950s and 1960s he appeared in many sitcoms including Love and Kisses, Arthur's Treasured Volumes and The Arthur Askey Show. Of his many hits, 'I Want A Banana' has become something of an anthem for the bar staff of the Truck Festival, and can, of an evening, be heard sung in The Bear Inn, Oxford. Read more on Last.fm.
