* OldShame: [[invoked]] Has nothing nice to say about the first season of ''Series/{{Blackadder}}''.
* PlayingAgainstType: [[invoked]] Mostly known for his rubber-faced comedic roles, he went completely 'straight' to play an entirely dramatic character in ''Series/{{Maigret}}'' and what little humor there is is entirely deadpan.



* WrittenByCastMember: [[invoked]] Co-wrote the first season of ''Series/{{Blackadder}}'' and ''Series/MrBean''.

* HollywoodApocrypha: "The Amazing Jesus" features an apocryphal Gospel reading, in a parody of King James Bible English mixed with SophisticatedAsHell.
-->And they brought to him on a stretcher a man who was sick of the palsy, and they cried unto him, "Maestro, this man is sick of the palsy." And the Lord said, "If I had to spend my whole life on a stretcher, I'd be pretty sick of the palsy too!" And they were filled with joy, and cried out, "Lord, thy one-liners are as good as thy tricks; thou art indeed an all-round family entertainer."

* InherentlyFunnyWords: His [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FiWJWLCoH2M schoolmaster sketch]] employs this trope heavily and to hilarious effect. Atkinson's pronunciation of the (increasingly ridiculous) names is reminiscent of his use of the name "Bob" in the various Series/{{Blackadder}} series.
