Rowan Atkinson's Funniness Index

Ah, the wonder that is this most holy of Comic Relief nights. The night every year when we express our hope that aging comics can resurrect their careers. When we remember when Griff Rhys Jones was hip and not whinging about property taxes in Central London.

But Comic Relief is also a biennial event when we remember how old we are getting. We express our age in terms of how funny the most recent appearance of Rowan Atkinson is - with the sketch where he walkeed into a tree as the baseline..

It's not looking good.

We must be getting very old.

Or that joke isn't funny any more.


  1. He's a bit of a has-Bean, isn't he?

  2. I was thinking that you could try a Rowan William's funniness index - than I realised that you'd be on to a loser.......
