Reviews

Whether mesmerising us with the sheer
visual mastery of Mr. Bean, beguiling us with
the acerbic wit of Edmund Blackadder, or
simply entertaining us as the suave, but
rather hapless British Secret Agent Johnny
English, you surely won't have escaped the
comic genius that is Rowan Atkinson.
In Rowan Atkinson Live, co-written with Richard Curtis (4 Weddings & a Funeral,
Notting Hill, Love Actually) and Ben Elton, Atkinson runs the whole gamut of his
remarkably versatile 30 year career, with sketches, mimes and monologue's that are
guaranteed to have you shedding tears of laughter. Performing live on stage alongside
"straight man" Angus Deayton, the show features a number of original and familiar
routines, including sketches that appeared in the original Mr. Bean series.

Format: DVD
Like most Rowan Atkinson Fans, I've been waiting too long for the UK DVD release of his one man show, filmed back in 1992.
Although it is 16 years old now, there is still plenty to laugh about. Rather than been a general "stand up" comedy show, the show consists of different well planned sketches, which show Rowan Atkinson at his best.
As you would expect there is plenty of physical comedy, such as the 'first date' sketch and 'the invisable man', which are both hilarious.
But if physical comedy is not for you there are plenty of "spoken sketches too, including the one where he tells Angus Deayton that he beat his kid to death at school.
This is comedy at his very best, something that people of all ages would enjoy. An ideal gift for Christmas.

Rowan Atkinson has managed to do it again. This show will keep you laughing days after you watched it. It begins with Rowan Atkinson pretending to be the devil and sorting the newcomers into groups, such as lawyers, Atheists, and Christians. It progresses to Rowan Atkinson as a headmaster who is trying to describe why he had his son beaten to death. Rowan Atkinson also pretends to be a man tormented by and invisible man, and indian waiter at a resteraunt, a person demonstrating different dating techniques and much more.
This video is appropriate for anybody who will take the risk of laughing themselves to death, or sit on the couch for hours watching it again and again.

I have been a Rowan Atkinson fan for many years and so I was thrilled when this finally came out in the UK. Almost oll of the skteches had me in stitches and I have watched it many times. Favorite sketches include A Warm Welcome (Atkinson being the devil in Hell) and No one called Jones (Lots of double entandre). If you enjoy a good laugh and are not easily offended then this DVD is definatly for you.

Format: DVD
I remember years ago seeing the first Mr Bean sketches at my local cinema shown prior to the main feature and really enjoyed them. Of course the Mr Bean character then developed into a dreadful abomination which is best forgotten. Seeing Rowan Atkinson performing here makes you realise what a sad loss his defection to Hollywood is. These sketches are not far off 20 years old but are still as fresh and funny as the day they were performed. Some of the sketches are spoken, some mime with commentary but you can start to see the direction Rowan was going in.

This DVD is worth buying just for the "extra" sketch when Rowan plays a silent drum kit but the show is enjoyable throughout.

When you think of the great work Rowan did on Not The Nine O'Clock News, Black Adder and this live show, it is sad to see what he has become. Come back to us Rowan. You are a major talent who has lost his way.

By @GeekZilla9000 TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 26 Jan. 2013
Format: DVD
This DVD contains highlights from Rowan Atkinson's 1981 and 1986 shows filmed in the USA.

Atkinson sets a surrealist tone straight away appearing in horns and a smoking jacket - he is of course the devil and performs a routine welcoming new entrants to hell. Though performed in front of an American audience, this is still very 'British' humour and not at all diluted or modified. The DVD box looks more modern than the actual show and it does look a bit '80s (unsurprisingly) but Atkinson looks like he's gone back in time from the current day - the man never seems to age! The only part of the show which has dated is a sketch featuring an impression of an Indian waiter which would probably be seen as a little inappropriate these days, however the joke is on the customers and not the waiter.

Rowan Atkinson is one of the best character actors of our time and he proves it here by appearing in sketches which rely heavily on his unique way of visualising himself using that amazingly expressive face - as best proved in his 'invisible man' routine. The truth is that there are incredibly few performers who would be capable of making most of these skits work. He appears alongside Not The Nine O'clock News collaborator Angus Deayton and some of the sketches will appear familiar as some are alternate versions of moments from the Mr. Bean episodes.

In a nutshell: Not always hilarious but it is always amusing, and Rowan Atkinson is a marvel, making well choreographed and very physical performances appear effortless.

By Mr. C. Gelderd VINE VOICE on 7 Aug. 2014
Format: DVD
This remarkable 1992 stand-up show filmed at Boston University was written by Rowan Atkinson with Richard Curtis and Ben Elton. Atkinson performs live on stage alongside "straight man" Angus Deayton and features a number of original sketches as well as a couple of updated ‘Mr.Bean’ skits.

Demonstrating the inimitable Atkinson and his talent for both physical and verbal comedy in a range of sketches, this truly is good-natured comedy with only a few wonderfully risqué moments that add to the over-all pay off, never coming across as in your face, coarse or crass.

As either a solo performer in ‘The Invisible Man’ or ‘No-One Called Jones’ sketch to demonstrate his ability to create an environment just due to his perfect physical actions and movement, Atkinson works just as well alongside Deayton in other sketches such as ‘Fatal Beatings’ or ‘The Good Loser’, bouncing off that straight man persona.

Never coming across as egotistical or boarding on racist and offensive, this is charming and eye-watering comedy as it should be from a real British talent, and it will provide countless viewings to be enjoyed over and over again.
