Sorry too easy for Wikipedia!

The answer is: Le Pétomane

HA HA HA

"When a medical school in Paris requested the privilege of examining the late Le Pétomane's famous anus, the family declined, stating, 'there are some things in this life which simply must be treated with reverence.'"

Maybe I shouldn't admit that I knew the name offhand.

Au contraire. It is to be proud.

"Le Petomane" was a stage name... His given name was Joseph Pujol.

(yes..this is just a cheap, backdoor way to score some Scribal Points..)

One lone fartist tooting a few simple tunes.. Big deal... You should ride my bus in the mornings.. You'd think it was the Greek Orthodox Men's Farting Choir doing Gregorian Flatuchants on a diatonic scale..

..but whatcha going to do..? I just pop open the window and enjoy the show.

Pujol, pronounced poo-Hole

And of course Mel Brooks played the conniving Governor William J. Le Petomane in Blazing Saddles, a film revered for its high level of flatus.

As anyone who remembers the cowboys round the campfire will attest.
