A collection of brilliant stand-up sketches
30 July 1999 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

These sketches show that there is much more to Rowan Atkinson than Mr. Bean! From an excellent portrayal of Lucifer, the devil to an actor who can't win an award, to an Indian waiter; he keeps the audience laughing.

The video lets you be amongst the audience and watch humour, some intelligent, some plain dirty. It doesn't matter because by the end of the last sketch you're sorry there isn't any more. Angus Deayton not only supports Rowan, but also delivers an excellent performance in his own right.
