Rowan Atkinson – Weirdest stand-up comedian
Rowan Atkinson (Mr.Bean) is a comedian, who was born in England. He is best known for his skit comedy in Blackadder, Thin Blue Line and Mr. Bean. He has a stuttering problem, so he tends to over articulate the “b” in words. This adds to the comedic value of what he is trying to say. He has a style that relies on a visual comedy rather than a monologue style. He has been compared to Charlie Chaplin and has even received accolades for his comedic style. He continues to do television shows and movies and has even dabbled in politics, while fulfilling a passion for cars.
In November 2012 it emerged that the character of Mr. Bean will not be performed again. “The stuff that has been most commercially successful for me – basically quite physical, quite childish – I increasingly feel I’m going to do a lot less of,” Rowan Atkinson told the Daily Telegraph’s Review. “Apart from the fact that your physical ability starts to decline, I also think someone in their 50s being childlike becomes a little sad. You’ve got to be careful. He has also said that the role typecast him to a degree.
While on a holiday trip to Kenya in 2001, the pilot of his private plane fainted. Atkinson managed to maintain the plane in the air for several minutes until the pilot recovered and was able to regain control.
