And then there were none.
The Two Ronnies was quintessential UK BBC comedy viewing for many during the 70s and 80s.
Hosts Ronnie Corbett and Ronnie Barker were on an equal and yet different footing. Barker was more of an actor and Corbett the funny man though the lines between the two were often blurred.
Both had appeared with David Frost in his political satirical shows of the 60s along with John Cleese of later Monty Python fame. [see footgae above]
Barker also had huge success with TV series Porridge and others including Going Straight.
Both men could dress as women for their various Two Ronnies comedy sketches and somehow still look like men but also resemble women. Their funny songs that accompanied such sketches were probably not 2016 politically correct but they were not the sexist nonsense of Benny Hill.
They were two funny men who entertained us for years and both will be missed.
Corbett was short and Barker rather plump but they rarely used their physical appearances for their comedy. They did not need to.
Ronnie Corbett was the central character in Timothy in the series Sorry; a series about a middle-aged man still living with his parents and longing to escape.
There are so many funny moments that it is difficult to select just one or two; but we have added a couple of bits of footage from YouTube.
The one thing is their comedy lives on in our memories and the re-runs that =continue to make us laugh.
And Ronnie Corbett had become a cult comedian in recent years admired by the new generation of funny men and women.
RIP Ronnie and Ronnie.
Ronnie Barker died October 3, 2005 and Ronnie Corbett died today, March 31, 2016.
Both were much loved by their families and their fans in the UK.
