Welcome to my Mr Bean page! I've loved watching Mr bean (Rowan Atkinson) because he is so funny!
If you like a good laugh, make sure you see him!
Here are a few pictures of Mr Bean in action!
----> Do Bears?
A duet with Kate Bush which starts out with a cheesy Vegas-style intro and turns into a song about a couple who have vastly
different views of their relationship. It's found on the "Comic Relief Utterly Utterly Live Album." Here's a sample of the lyrics:
ATKINSON: I met her in the first lounge of a jumbo jet. It was love at first sight. Romeo and Juliet.
BUSH: He looked pretty rich and I was down on my luck. So I charged him a fortune for a flying....
----> Fatal Beatings
This skit has Atkinson (in his best superior, arrogant mode) as a Headmaster who must explain to a parent, Mr. Perkins, that
his son died after he was beat for not returning a library book. How does he break the news? After telling the parent that his
son hasn't been participating in school life lately he says "Frankly, if he wasn't dead I'd have him expelled."
-----> Tom, Dick, and Harry (or Thomas, Richard, and Harold)
Atkinson here is in his vicar character, telling about the demise of Tom, Dick, and Harry, all of whom were varying
combinations of blind, deaf, and dumb yet made a great team because together were in possession of "all God's senses." So
how did they meet their death? As the vicar tells it, "Dick *saw* the combine harvester. Harry *heard* the combine harvester,
yet neither could cry out. Tom, who *could've* cried out, never had the faintest idea what hit him."
-----> The News
Performed on the HBO "Live From London" special, this skit has Atkinson telling the news in a straight voice but giving visuals
supposedly to help the hearing impaired. To say "Hello" he makes a halo around his head. To signify America he mimes putting
an enormous amount of food into his mouth. He gets the name Ronald Reagan across by pretending first to be a cowboy
drawing his gun and then falling asleep. There's more but you get the picture. A great bit.
-----> Shakespeare Skit
What happens when you try to edit the Bard? In this bit of whimsy Atkinson tries to explain to Shakespeare that his latest play,
"Hamlet" is too long and that some of the speeches (i.e. the "To be or not to be" soliloquy) need to be cut. "Think of bums on
wooden benches" he pleads. In the end a deal is cut -- the soliloquy is shortened but the two "cockney grave diggers" and the
skull bit get to stay. This skit was performed at the second "Hysteria" benefit with Hugh Laurie as Shakespeare.
