Double acts don't come any closer than the The Two Ronnies. Messrs Barker and Corbett kept a nation laughing for two decades, and yet despite the rigorous work that went into writing, rehearsing and broadcasting almost a hundred episodes to millions of viewers each week, the pair never shared a cross word. In this memoir, the late Ronnie Corbett tells the story of their rise from theatre, through The Frost Report and into their own legendary show, as well as how some of their greatest sketches, including Mastermind and Fork Handles, came into being. This is the story of one of the great British institutions of the last thirty years, and a hilarious and moving look inside the working lives of two of our most-beloved comedians.
Ronnie Corbett CBE was one of Britain's favourite entertainers with a career spanning over six decades. He rose to prominence in the 1960's with his regular appearance on The Frost Report where he met Ronnie Barker. Together, they formed The Two Ronnies which went on to run for sixteen years. Corbett died in March 2016.
