Biography

André van Duin (born as Adrianus Marinus Kyvon, on February 20, 1947) is a famous and extremely popular Dutch comedian, singer, actor, stage performer, recording artist, TV presenter, radio performer, songwriter and media icon. He started his career as a parody artist in the mid-1960’s, after a successful appearance on the then-popular nationwide TV-show “Nieuwe Oogst”. Following this, a string of television broadcasts followed, resulting in various TV and radio shows, long-term stage shows, an almost endless stream of Top 40 hits throughout the ’70s, ’80s and ’90s, and numerous other media appearances.

Van Duin released his first 7” singles in the second half of the 1960s, on the legendary Dutch label Favorieten Expres. None of them charted, however, due to lack of airplay. After scoring his first hit in 1972 with the novelty tune “Angelique” (original: “The Swiss Maid”), André became a regular in the Dutch singles charts for the next three decades. In early 1976, Van Duin held the number one spot for the first time in his career, with the humorous self-written song “Willempie”. The song caused controversy, as it was accused of insulting the mentally retarded. Also, it is credited with kicking Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” off the top spot of the Dutch Top 40.

In 1980, Van Duin scored big time with the anthemic soccer song “Nederland, Die Heeft De Bal”, still a stadion favourite of the Dutch soccer supporters. During the summer of 1982, André had a number one hit again, this time with the double A-sided single “Als Je Huilt” (original: “Cry”) / “Bim Bam” (original: “Les Trois Clocks”).
