From Back Cover:

"For those who know him only for the acid-tongued Bl'adder, this will be a revelation, while for the rest it is merely a confirmation of his genius."

One of the greatest comedians ever, Rowan Atkinson is best known for his unfrogettable characters and inventive physical humor. Now,this star of Black Adder, Mr. Bean, and other television and film gems, performs his world-famous sketches and rare stand-up comedy routines in front of a live audience.

ROWAN ATKINSON LIVE! features ten skits from Rowan's critically-acclaimed 1991 Boston performance - among which fans of Mr. Bean will find some of their favorite routines - and plenty of brand new hilarity. In this stand up romp, Rowan eschews the silent slapstick of his most famous character to portray everyone from Satan (but you can call him Toby) to a devout (if sleepy) churchgoer, to an actor amateurishly portraying various Shakespearean characters.

While discovery Atkinson's briliant live work is a treat in itself, this disc also contains additional stand-up performances never before released in North America.

My Comments:

Although heavily reliant on his Mr. Bean brand of comedy, this T.V. special does have just enough non-Bean comedy to keep it interesting.
