A Great Performance
20 June 1999 | by (Chicago, IL) – See all my reviews

This is one of the best stand-up/sketch comedy specials I have ever seen. Angus Deayton is the perfect straight man, and Rowan Atkinson is hilarious. The show is a combination of "Mr. Bean"-esque pantomime and sketch comedy. Some highlights:

"A Warm Welcome" -- The devil welcomes souls to hell.

"Pink Tights and Plenty of Props" -- A hilarious sendup of Shakespearean acting and dramatic conventions.

"Fatal Beatings" -- A principal explains to a father how a student was accidentally beaten to death for stealing library books.

"With Friends like these..." -- A great satire of a wedding gone horribly wrong.

I highly recommend the video version, as the version you occasionally see on Comedy Central has many lines (and a few entire sketches) entirely edited out.
