Rowan Atkinson: Not Just Another Pretty Face

Alternative title
Rowan Atkinson - Live
Synopsis
Series showcasing the talents of offbeat and irreverent comedians. This edition, taped before a live audience at the Huntington Theatre in Boston, includes a sketch entitled ‘Pink Tights and Plenty of Props’ in which an actor (Deayton) lectures on the art of performing Shakespeare on stage. Atkinson plays Bernard Huppup who demonstrates. The sketch (laboured) is not as funny as you might think.
