    Ronnie Barker was funnier, but Ronnie Corbett was his perfect partner in comedy. They were at the top of their trade in the 1970s and 1980s and were probably more recognizable and just as loved as any other British celebrities during that era.

    Are you going to start a thread every time someone dies? 😉

    Do you not have any fond memories of this man who has died, is that what has prompted this comment?

    Seeing as how there are approximately 150,000 people who die every day, I think Grampy Bobby's sad little forum-o-meter™ might just about break its knicker elastic if he did.

    "Fork Handles" was, I think, one of the best.

    The Two Ronnies were far superior to Morecambe & Wise in my opinion and Corbett's
    "silliness" was the perfect foil to Barker's intellectual wit and endless punning.
