    Its not just about jokes. It's about masterclass acting, facial expressions, body gestures, miraculous voice, dialogue delivery, pitch and tone of voice, and whatnot.
    Genius for so many reasons.

    After seeing this, it's almost a shame he's famous for doing mr bean. This is pure gold

      I wonder if what you associate him with depends on your age? I'm 60, and if I think of Rowan Atkinson, it's either as 'Blackadder', 'not the 9 o'clock news' or on stage, doing this. I totally agree with you that Mr Bean is not his best work! If you're not familiar with NTNON have a look, it's probably a bit dated now, but still really funny!😂😊

      I did know him first as Mr. Bean but really loved his performance as Blackadder when I first found those 4 seasons in my pre-teen years. Watching Blackadder motivated me, a non-native speaker, to become fluent with English and to develop some of that witty sense of humor.

      Takes his comedy very seriously. I can't imagine he corpses very often tbh. Possibly not funny at all out of character. That's not uncommon for comedians.

      @Thomas I actually know them but they are all American comedians. Dave Chapel is only funny if you can relate to his racial experience. I don’t and I don’t care either. Adam Sandler was a popular movie comedian in the 90’s / 00’s? I don’t think I have ever watched something with him that actually make me laugh. Saget is the only one I have never heard, I’ll take a look

      @Lujinah Jfairi Nope. In 2013 he was made a Commander of the Order of the British Empire (CBE) not a knight.
      The Order of the British Empire starts at Member (MBE) then Officer (OBE) then Commander (CBE) then Knight Commander (KBE) and finally Knight Grand Cross (GBE).
      CBE is not a knighthood and doesn't confer the right to use, "Sir."

      @Roger Stalder i didnt know that happened actually. I read something but i didnt know it was true. I knew something happened to him though. But when he did another movie i thought he was ok. Depression these days is becoming very serious

    • Jurgen Zaka
      Jurgen Zaka Year ago

      @Roger Stalder no the movies were great. Dont watch the ratings. Nowadays they dont watch mr bean that much and not many know who he is as they havent seen the series. His acting is great. Thats how the character is.
      And yes as i said Jim was my favourite actor back then i liked him more than any other actor. Its just american humor vs british humor. They are different. Jim was more approachable to the audience a newer and younger face kind of dumb in some of movies and brilliant in others. But he was not that serious though in many movies.
      But when i saw Rowans standup comedies i thought he is brilliant.
      Jim is my favourite though and i dont get why he left so early. He is not that active anymore. And started to not like his movies anymore the same as i did before considering ive seen them like more than 6 times

    • Roger Stalder
      Roger Stalder Year ago

      @Jurgen Zaka Yea but The Movies who Rowan made was terrible actualy. This Mr.Bean Movies had a Rating of 6.5/10 that is actualy very very bad. and it isnt the Movie itself. its his Bad acting, and only Play 1 role what made this Movies so bad. And okay. Ave Ventura isnt actualy better tho :) Cant watch them today anymore ^^ then id rather look Truman Show or somethign lke that. But Bean was great in his old TV series, thats all Movie wise. havent realy heard of his serious roles. means they also wasnt that great. dont help if u act good and no1 sees it ^^ And yea i get the point of Rowans straight Face. I mean i sure do like the English Homor more then the American one. (tho Germans are great too) But cant deny that i laughed more from Jim carrey then Rowan. at Rowan im also more have a straight Face, and think: ''how intelligent was this joke'' then real laugh lol. at Jim u dont have to think, u just laugh. i think thats the biggest diffrence about them.

    Rowan is indeed, one to bring you to tears. I laughed so hard I almost wet my pants. It is a very rare comedian who can create and project so many different characters and own so many facial expressions as to believe he is actually the person personified. All of his stand-up, movies, and series are unparalleled. We, as Americans, are especially enamored of British humor, but Rowan is the Best. Love him to death.

      @Banana Not exactly. It's only racist if you're thinking of it that way. So in turn, the person calling it out to be 'racist' is probably the racist in question. I swear it would go away so easily if people just stopped seeing others as different and appreciate how different we are. 🙄

      Impersonating an accent isn't itself offensive. He's not saying 'Look how silly these Indians sound'. He needs to convey it's an Indian restaurant and the accent is just enough to get that across. At no point is the accent the joke

    • Winston_KillDeath

      It works because he’s not wearing brown face and the restauranteur is not the butt of the joke, drunk british soccer football fans are, and we’re empathizing with his character.

    • David Eberhardt
      David Eberhardt Year ago +19

      the brilliant part of that sketch is that he's not making fun of the (presumably) Indian restaurateur, but he aims it directly at the rude, crude and drunk Brits. Plus his accent is actually pretty good ...

      @Jenny Gavin-Wear I'm Scottish, and I think he could pass for how older middle/upper class Glaswegians sound. The ones who went through the grammar school system sounded a bit like that. I certainly wouldn't' bat an eye if I met someone who sounded like that. It may not be flawless but it is a cut above most parody Scottish accents, which are generally not used anywhere.

      @Jenny Gavin-Wear To be exact, it's RP with a very clear touch of a Northeastern accent. Not surprising, given where Atkinson was born. (yes, I know there's more NE accents, but since I am not familiar with the accents around Durham I can't quite bring myself to say it's a Durham accent).

    Rowen Atkinson is quite simply a superb comedian who has a great ability to make nearly every single person laugh at his humour, this can be even with a single word like. “Bob” if anyone remember him playing lord blackadder, he was the best just with saying “Bob” could make everyone laugh so hard. I thank rowan Atkinson truly is a genius and only wish that we could see him perform live"....

      Rowan actually has a stutter, and has trouble pronouncing b's which us why he pronounces "bob" so deliberately.

    Of course british people can be proud of a lot of things, but their humor has to be somewhere at the top of the list. I just love it! And they have so many fantastic comedians I could watch all day long. Unfortunately, this kind of humor is rarely found here in Germany, which is a shame.

      @Izabella Mcgrath never "sit" on the toilet? I'm with you on baby wipes and shower, I do the same myself, but how do you not sit? Do you pitch one out in the yard so no toilet?

      nitza Gomej possibly he is I adore Rowan Atkinson have ever since I watched him as a young child in the early eighties he is my favourite equal to George Carlin who I adore too. I only recently came across George doing stand up which is a shame he is hilarious but in a totally different manner. That being said I do adore Rowan but I have not heard every comic ever so I can go no further than I did. I doubt anyone will ever match these to comedic geniuses in their respective fields but only a sith deals in absolutes. Btw this is also my favourite sketch by RA its very good on so many levels.
