There are two versions in circulation, one running 55 minutes and the other running 65 minutes. The first version misses the last two sketches ("Thomas, Richard and Harold" and "No one called Jones"). The Version released in Germany (with subtitles) on VHS runs 55 minutes. See more »
I caught parts of this performance on cable and was very impressed. Then I was in Sun Coast Video and saw the entire show for sale on VHS and I immediately bought it. I was not disappointed.
Mr. Atkinson is trapped by his Mr. Bean character and it's a shame. I'm sure there are quite a few folks out there that would not bother to watch this type of performance thinking it will be filled with his somewhat gross line of comedy. There is some of that but for the most part, this video contains very thoughtful, and more importantly, very funny pieces of sketch comedy. In some places I laughed so hard I cried.
Get a few friends together and laugh till you pass out.
