as an aside, i always rather fancied rik Mayall, actually a handsome chap when in repose, likewise mr atkinson. i wonder if it is the contrast? Shows wit and lack of vanity if nothing else.

I've come to appreciate Rowan Atkinson just over the past month, primarily because of the videos here on IAB. He really is phenomenally talented. I think comparisons to Chaplin are apt -- Atkinson's facial expressions, for one thing, are amazing.

Blackadder is funny, but Mr. Bean hits my sweet spot of this-is-not-funny.

Gerry1of1 I remember liking it, but that was before Internet times when I saw it.

Bean is funny for the same reason Lucy and Buster Keaton are funny.

Because we all feel like a nerd sometimes. We all have our 'Mister Bean" moments in life, but it's hard to laugh when it happens to us (at the time anyhow).
