Rowan to perform at Charles’ 60th birthday bash

This is potentially a very exciting story as Rowan performed the King’s Birthday sketch as Charles’ 50th birthday televisual spectacular some ten years ago. So here’s hoping that Rowan brings Eddie out of retirement one more time.

UPDATE: No, he didn’t bring out Edie one more time.


Comedy greats Rowan Atkinson, Robin Williams and John Cleese are to join forces to mark the 60th birthday of the Prince of Wales.

The televised gala, which will see Williams return to the UK stage after a 25 years, is being held to raise tens of thousands of pounds for youth charity The Prince’s Trust.

We Are Most Amused will take place on November 12, two days before the Prince’s birthday and will be broadcast on ITV1.

The Prince will attend the comedy night with the Duchess of Cornwall.

Monty Python star Cleese, 68, has promised something “extra special” for the event at London’s New Wimbledon Theatre.

Mr Bean and Blackadder star Atkinson, 53, last went on a live tour in 1991.

The 1,500 tickets for the show go on sale tomorrow priced between £25 and £100.

More stand-up and sketch acts will be announced in the run-up to the show.

ITV1 said: “The line-up will bring together the very best in comedy talent – from much-loved established names to fresh young acts from the stand-up circuit – a combination which will appeal to all ages and, above all, to comedy fan and guest of honour the Prince of Wales.”
