10 Classic Mr. Bean Sketches
Two things I realized the other day; how much of an influence Mr. Bean had on what I find funny and how much I miss watching the show. The first realization came during an interview for my book when the interviewer asked what type of shows I watched growing up because I’ve got an odd sense of humor. I rattled off the usual and then said “Oh and Mr. Bean. The guy was hilarious without saying a word.” Now, I can’t say I try and replicate his humor because he was more physical comedy while all I do is pretend to write. What did influence me was his absurd sense of humor while doing the most mundane things; going shopping, eating at a restaurant or even taking classes. I tried to find the humor in normal daily life. It’s very Bean.
So I started watching old clips of Mr. Bean on YouTube and even though I’ve seen them all I still laugh like an idiot. Hopefully those that have seen them will get a laugh and others will seeing him for the first time will find him as hysterical.
