    Default "...and it's goodnight from him" - Ronnie Barker dies

    It's just been announced that Ronnie Barker has died aged 76. This is a sad day for all comedy fans

    I remember watching the Two Ronnies as a kid, and their shows were always a comedy favourite. RIP Ronnie

    The two Ronnies were quite funny in their time.
    My parents both enjoyed their shows and even now will watch re-runs.
    RIP Ron Barker

    Possibly won't mean much to a lot of people but the hardware store sketch has to be one of the funniest pieces of comedy ever. "Fork handles?"!

    Och the noo, Jock--there are a few of us around--and not all live in the UK.

    Ronnie Barker--a true comedy giant. One of a few that had no need to swear to make you laugh.

    I'm not actually Scottish.. I just live here.

    Looking into joining the Inverness volunteers at the moment, fingers crossed, eh?

    I used to love the newsdesk at the end of the Two Ronnies... always good for a laugh.
