Mr. Bean Before Mr. Bean

The 'old' standup show of Rowan Atkinson. His "hell" sketch still cracks me up.

For me, Welcome to Hell and Fatal Beating have always been my favorite from this set. His parting shot at the end of Fatal Beating is especially good.

Loved his early stuff and Blackadder. He's done some decent cameos and Johnny English is ok. Never could stand Mr Bean.

Rowan is a character actor.  He takes a character, and takes on that character's mannerisms, speech patters, etc.  If you watch each of the three sketches where he plays some form of clergyman, it takes very little time for you to not only separate them as individual characters, but they are immediately recognizable.

Several of these skits were great. If you have time to view only one, watch "Schoolteacher's Roll Call" (my own name for it), starting at 59:21.
