Rowan Atkinson dusted off his world famous Mr Bean character today at the premiere of his latest film which is only released in China.
The film titled Top Funny Comedian is expected to prove extremely lucrative after Mr Bean's Holiday released in 2007 grossed more than £2.4million in China alone.
Atkinson, worth an estimated £70million, took to the stage to perform his mute slapstick-style comedy which gloriously transcends languages.
Clad in his famous brown suit and red tie, Mr Bean was his typical animated self as he pulled a series of facial expressions and pulled out some props.
Top Funny Comedian is a spin-off of the popular Chinese variety show of the same name and sees the star - who is known as Mr Foolish Bean in Asia - as one of the leading characters in the role.
The film also stars Chinese comedians Guo Degang and Yue Yunpeng as they venture from from Beijing to Macao.
As Guo speaks limited English and Rowan no mandarin, he revealed the pair were forced to communicate mainly through body language.
'Just with facial expressions and gestures we seemed to understand each other,' Guo said at a promotional event in Beijing.
'It was really an interesting experience, which proves that comedy can cross boundaries.'
