Ok, I didn’t like Rowan Atkinson as a child. Mr Bean was just annoying. I didn’t watch Blackadder until a couple of years ago (which I liked). Looking back, Mr Bean still isn’t very funny, but Atkinson’s movements are pretty incredible, from his face down to his feet. We were watching youtube clips the other day, and were reminded of the following clip, of Atkinson playing an invisible drumkit, and its just incredible. I am sure people will look back and consider him one of the greats of physical comedy. Here are a couple of other clips in the same vein, the piano player, and the conductor.
