Stan Freberg

Wednesday 7 December 2005 18:30-19:00 (Radio 4 FM)


Mark Thomas hosts shows featuring iconic American comedians.

In an exclusive appearance, Stan Freberg reprises some of the routines that made him a legend.

Stan Freberg began his career doing voices for Warner Brothers cartoon characters, before launching his own career as performer and producer of classic comedy records in 1952. He was given his own US network radio show in the late '50s, inheriting the slot vacated by the great Jack Benny. He's remembered for his razor-sharp parodies of Elvis Presley, Lonnie Donegan, the US police series Dragnet, and of Harry Belafonte's Banana Boat Song which was also a sizeable British hit. In this one-off British appearance at the London Comedy Store, Stan, now 79, reprises some of the greatest moments of his comedy career.
