But generally speaking, I tend to be quiet and introspective.
You're about as useful as a one-legged man at an arse kicking contest.
I want to express myself in a different way. I have a performing inclination.
I mean I can do it when I'm very relaxed, and with good friends, then I think I can be amusing.
I would return to the Blackadder character if the opportunity came up. I have no qualms about that at all.
And what's interesting about him as a comic character is that the custard pie hardly ever ends up on his face.
