I used to love The Two Ronnies.. probably just as much as Morecambe & Wise.. top quality entertainers.
I watched "The One Ronnie" yesterday and was quite surprised at how good Ronnie Corbett still is! He still has the gift of timing and facial expression to make a gag or sketch work..
I particularly liked the sketch with Harry Enfield ( another great under-used talent imo .. ) in the Grocer's Shop.. real classic stuff and if I'm right, Enfield really enjoyed the content too.. I liked Harry's smile as Ronnie delivered the line about "his Dongle" Laughing
A great show in a format from years gone by maybe? I think so, but whatever... it worked, Ronnie worked, and for me at least, it showed how much we need and miss shows like this..
Nice one Ronnie!

Totally agree Santa

For me the Two Ronnies were always as much a part of Christmas as the turkey or the festive tree

I used to like Ronnie C on his own in Sorry as well

Me too. I'd watched it many times when I once turned up on a video shoot only to recognise the Sound Recordist. I looked at him hard and said "Haven't I seen you on that Ronnie Corbett sitcom on the telly?". He said yes - he played the part of the geeky-looking bloke with glasses`who dated their daughter. He had an Equity card from years back and did a bit of acting here and there, though turned to the production side because the work was more consistent. He was a good sound man, too! (Del, he was called).

He said that Ronnie Corbett and the whole cast were great fun to work with.

It was remarkable only for how many people it took to play the ghost of Ronnie B

I enjoyed this programme too, he mixes well with other comics and is looking great for 80!

I used to love Sorry as well ..."Timothy!"... Laughing
