|The complaints to the Conservative Party against Mr Johnson will be looked at by an independent panel. It could refer him to the party's board, which has the power to expel him.
A source close to Mr Johnson offered no comment on the move while a Tory spokesman said: "The code of conduct process is strictly confidential."
But Blackadder and Mr Bean creator Atkinson told the Times: "I do think that Boris Johnson's joke about wearers of the burka resembling letterboxes is a pretty good one. Canon Support Number
"All jokes about religion cause offence, so it's pointless apologising for them."
And ex-Tory Chief Whip Andrew Mitchell said Mr Johnson should not have to apologise.
He said Mr Johnson had "expressed himself in quite colourful language, but he hasn't committed any offence and we need to be very careful about our handling of this because we believe in free speech in this country".
"We must be careful not to go over the top on this. There is a procedure within the party if people complain then quite rightly the party has a mechanism for dealing with that. And that should take place."
