The A To Z Of Richard Curtis | Rowan Atkinson
R
Rowan Atkinson

To say that Rowan Atkinson and Richard Curtis's first meeting at Oxford was serendipitous would be an understatement the size of Norwich cathedral. "When we met for our first rehearsal, I noticed a funny-looking fellow skulking in the corner who didn't say a word," recalls Curtis of his first foray at the Oxford Revue. "Ha! I was going to knock this lot into a cocked hat." The funny-looking chap was Atkinson and "he got every single laugh in the summer show", Curtis reflects wryly. Since then the pair have teamed up for Blackadder, Not The Nine O'Clock News, Four Weddings, Mr. Bean and countless others, although none have boasted anything remotely as outlandish as Atkinson's chin carpet in Bernard And The Genie.
