Black Adder is acted by Rowan Atkinson, the same guy as Mr. Bean. Black Adder is the show that shows his intillectual humor. Some of the quotes are derived from Shakespearian quotes, like the one that fits here the most:"As private parts to the gods are we, they play with us for their sport!"Lord Melchett-Black Adder II
Red Dwarf is good
Yeah, I know that. The DVD has a Rowan Atkinson biography and shows some of that show, as well as some of his other work. I first saw Mr. Bean on PBS, but as far as I know, Black Adder isn't televised anywhere in the U.S.

GREAT BIG HUG
Does ANYONE here watch Jeeves and Wooster?! It's very intillectual, so it's a bit difficult ot follow, but it is hysterical!!
In reply to: but as far as I know, Black Adder isn't televised anywhere in the U.S. i've seen Black Adder on some kind of pbs station here in the states
I'm a big fan of the Red Green show, a Canadian program. I think Pat McKenna is one of the funniest people on the planet.I suppose I could get the BBC on my cable, but I'd have to pay extra for it. The only British shows I get to see are on PBS. Mr. Bean was only on a few times (including the animated series, which I didn't care much for), Red Drawf, and Chef. I haven't watched too many of them.
I remember a Thanksgiving episode of Friends where Matt LeBlanc got the turkey stuck on his head and everyone thought it was so funny, when in reality, that wasn't original because Mr. Bean did that big several years earlier.If you haven't had the chance to see all 14 episodes, go get the 3-DVD set. It's definitely worth it!
I know this is off topic, but does anyone here like Dave Chappelle
Well, it is a comedy show, so it is kind of on topic.....well, I've never watched it, but I haven't heard anything but good news about it. It seems funny, I think I'll go to my cousin's and wach it sometime.

The Mighty Boosh is fabulous. I would forward Brass Eye and The Day Today for making irony an art form.

Black Books was just incredibly funny, especially Bill Bailey, the man knows funny.
Question, Wasabi Peas, was "Not the 9 'o Clock News" done by Rowan Atkinson, or is it just me?
Yes, Rowan Atkinson was on that show for a while.
