Rowan Atkinson, one of the most notable British Comedians to ‘make it’ outside of Britain brought us the loveable Mr Bean character.
A character that barely said a word yet brought tears of laughter to millions of fans around the world (us included!).
If you loved Mr Bean then you’ll love these other dialog free British Comedies.
The Baldy Man
Gregor Fisher is probably best known for playing the Glaswegian drunk Rab C Nesbitt.
However, between 1995 and 1997, audiences were laughing at the him The Baldy Man. The TV series followed the adventures of a large chap with a noticeable comb-over.
The Two Ronnies
Perhaps not as widely known as the popular sketch show that they created, The Two Ronnies produced two dialogue-free comedies. In 1976 they produced ‘The Picnic’ and in 1982 ‘By The Sea’.
Written by Baker under the pseudonym of “Dave Huggett and Larry Keith”, they follow the antics of an elderly general, his son, and the rest of the family, on day’s outings.
In 2015 Matt Lucus (known for his work with Little Britain) created Pompidou which sees him and his butler, Hove, undertake a series of adventures.
Although Lucas described it as one of the programmes he is most proud of having made, viewers and critics failed to take to the series and it only lasted one series.
Now if none of these tickle your fancy then it’s a simple matter of just sitting back and watching the classic reruns of Mr Bean instead.
