Blackadder back for one night only
Rowan Atkinson made a surprise appearance and brought back an old favourite at the Are Most Amused benefit show at London’s Royal Albert Hall last night, teaming up with Blackadder compatriot Tony Robinson for a new take on the comedy classic favourites. This time, Blackadder was an immoral banker finding himself in £20 billion debt and being called before a government inquiry panel. In his defense Blackadder, now a Lord, wheeled in his gardener Baldrick and blamed him for the world's financial woes in a send-up of all the 99% talk of the past year, of which there is a snippet below.
This was the first new Blackadder sketch in 10 years, the last one being for the Queen Liz's Golden Jubilee back in 2002. Last night's event featured a whole host of comedy favourites coming together to support the Prince's Trust, including Jimmy Carr, Joan Rivers, Ed Byrne, Omid Djalili, Patrick Kielty and more.
