I've been watching Mr. Bean lately. As kids, we would watch Mr. Bean reruns and other shows like Mr. Bill. This was in the infancy of cable TV in the early 90's. These were our late evening shows and we treasured them. They felt mystical and special. I'm not sure how well Mr. Bill held up, but I am actually laughing out loud with classic Mr. Bean episodes.

Can you name a physical comedian more talented and memorable than Rowan Atkinson? The guy was a legend, a master of a very difficult form of comedy.

I am impressed by all the cast and extras that kept a straight face during his skits.

Relive some of the joy of childhood with Mr. Bean. There's a massive playlist too! www.youtube.com...

Rowan Atkinson was also brilliant in 'Not the 9 o clock news' and then of course later in Blackadder.

Lets not forget that he drove a McLaren F1 for eleven years (usually bringing his kids to school and for shopping at the supermarket), had an accident with it in 2011 which damages were repaired for about 1 million pounds and finally he sold this car in 2015 for 11 million euro.

A true legend, this man.

The gorilla skit reminds a little bit of the young ones.

The invisible drums he did on stage is spot on. Rowan at his best.

I'm aware he's still alive. I was just referring to his work on the classic Mr. Bean series when I said he WAS a master--referring to that period specifically.

I'm not aware of his full body of work but I'm getting there.

Brilliant! I loved it! He's better at miming drums than I actually am as a drummer
