Atkinson Offensive

Rowan Atkinson’s Comic Relief sketch pretending to be a bishop was the most-complained-about TV moment of the year. Apparently it was “offensive”.

I didn’t find it offensive. I found it boring, tired, cliched, very 1980s. Totally lacking in edge. Just remember the Not the Nine O’Clock News “Life of Christ” sketch for comparison I didn’t write to Ofcom to complain. I would have made a mental note not to watch comedians who have long gone past their sell-by date. But as it happens, with Rowan Atkinson, I already had.
