Okay, this isn’t ENTIRELY relevant to Friday’s end-of-the-world prophesy; but what the hell…

    This one also featuring Rowan Atkinson is more relevant to the end of the world; with Peter Cook and a couple of Pythons at the Secret Policeman’s Ball 1979 for Amnesty International:

    Man, it has been over 33 years since the Secret Policeman’s Ball in 1979 and Rowan Atkinson looks exactly the same.

    Well, he looked like an old man when he was young. It’s just his age catching up with his face.

    Wow, it just never seems right to me to hear Rowan speaking.

    In Britain at least, Rowan Atkinson was famously speaking on British TV in the high-profile post-Python sketch show Not The Nine O’Clock News (1979-1982) ten years before the first Mr Bean saw the light of day. Here’s one of my favourite sketches from that, where you can hear Atkinson but not see him exactly (he’s the gorilla): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=beCYGm1vMJ0

    The other people in the sketch are Mel Smith, who has acted in lots of things and directed a few, including the first Bean movie in 1997; and Pamela Stephenson, who went on to get a PhD in clinical psychology, specialising in sex therapy, and is married to Billy Connolly, whom she first met when he guested on Not The Nine O’Clock News.

    It’s weird for me to NOT see Atkinson talking. I didn’t see Mr Bean until after being introduced to him through Blackadder, and enjoying The Thin Blue Line. And didn’t enjoy it that much - he’s not nearly as good a physical comedian as he is at stuff that involves talking.

    Blackadder’s Christmas Carol is the classic we watch every year.

    Looking forward to watching it again Monday night.
