Biography

Urbain Servranckx (June 7, 1949, Schepdaal, Belgium), also known as Urbain and Urbanus van Anus, is a Belgian comedian, actor, singer and comic book ‘hero’. He shocked the Flemish conservative fraction by writing a song that is a parody on the birth of Jesus.

In 1984, Urbanus and Willy Linthout began writing comic books with Urbanus himself as the main character. As of 2005 more than a hundred such comic books have been published.

His first movie ‘Hector’ (directed by Stijn Coninx) won the 1988 international comedy film festival in Chamrousse, France. He also was named best actor by Radio France and Dauphiné Libéré.
