They were from a time when swearing and insults were not considered comedy so innuendo and word play was more important.

This is one of Ronnie Corbetts most famous sketches, Might be a little English at points but pretty funny none the less.

It will be a small casket, considering the scale of the loss the nation will feel at his passing. I always made sure to catch The Two Ronnies, when they played repeats of the show in the nineties. I was only a lad, but I found them to be hilarious as a duo. Their like will probably never be seen again, mores the pity.

Hoist a glass, wherever you might be, to a true legend and a proper gent!

And Ronnie...do not be too upset that they didn't send two angels for you, as is traditional. You are only a little chap, so more than one would be an improper use of resources!

Pity he's gone


He was a comic genius who's managed to keep up with the world as it changed.

Apparently he was only 5 foot 1 and when he did national service he was the shortest commissioned officer in the British Forces.
