King Alfred Burnt the Surgical Trusses

There is absolutely nothing to report on this beautiful Saturday morning. I'm drinking coffee and poking around YouTube for British comedy.

Such as these bits from "At Last the 1948 Show," whose cast included pre-Python John Cleese and Graham Chapman, as well as Marty Feldman.

I also found this Rowan Atkinson sketch, which is a true classic. His stuff doesn't always work for me, but when it does, it's deadly.

Deadly indeed!

You have, of course, seen episodes of The Thin Blue Line?

Oh, yes, that's brilliant. I think my main problem with RA is that he worked the Mr. Bean schtick to death. The guy's a genius far beyond that one character.

For sure! Last weekend, my mom and I watched Keeping Mum, which is good for a few laughs...his character isn't *quite* Mr. Bean, but some of the same clueless sentiment is there. Anyway, he does a good job in that--well worth a watch. J doesn't know RA at all, which I think must be remedied ASAP!
