Origins

Ronnie Barker and Ronnie Corbett met for the first time at the Buckstone Club, The Haymarket, London, England, where Ronnie Corbett was serving drinks between acting jobs. They were invited by David Frost to appear in his (then) new show, The Frost Report, with John Cleese [1].

Ronnie Barker and Ronnie Corbett were subsequently given their own show by the BBC, with the programme quickly becoming one of the most successful and long running television comedy shows ever on British television, averaging around 17 million viewers a show at its peak — while John Cleese went on to Monty Python's Flying Circus (though he appeared in some of the early sketches of the Two Ronnies, such as in one in which he is a man who goes to a party and hops around like a kangaroo).

The show was based on the complementary personalities of Barker and Corbett, who never became a formal pairing, but continued to work independently in television outside of the editions of the Two Ronnies produced annually between 1971 and 1987. It had many notable writers including Ray Alan, John Cleese, Barry Cryer, Spike Milligan, David Nobbs, David Renwick, John Sullivan, Michael Palin and Gerald Wiley (a pseudonym used by Ronnie Barker when writing sketches). The show revolved around comic sketches in which Barker and Corbett appeared together and separately, with various other additions giving the programme the feeling of a variety show.

The Two Ronnies at the 'newsdesk'
The Two Ronnies at the 'newsdesk'

The sketches often revolved around complex word-play, much of it written by Barker under the pseudonym of Gerald Wiley. Barker also liked to parody officialdom and establishment figures, as well as eccentrics. Corbett appeared quieter, more often acting as a foil for Barker, but remained an important part of the "chemistry". Many of the jokes revolved around his lack of height, with he delivering many of them: when Barker says that the next part "does suit Ronnie C. right down to the ground", to which Corbett answers "Mind you, that's not far is it?". Others could be of a sexual nature of the sort found on seaside postcards, similar in tone to Benny Hill.

One of the most popular sketches was "Four Candles" (a sketch written by Barker under the "Gerald Wiley" pseudonym) where Barker walks into a DIY shop and asks for "four candles" and Corbett gives him the candles. What Barker wanted, however, was "fork handles - 'andles for forks" (as in pitchforks). Other popular sketches include a parody of Mastermind with Barker as Magnus Magnusson and Corbett as a contestant named Charlie Smithers, whose specialist subject was "answering the question before last" and the famous optician sketch ("No, No, You're reading all the furniture"). The Four Candles sketch, originally titled The Hardware Shop is a sketch from the BBC comedy Two Ronnies. ...

Corbett always had a solo monologue in each show, where he sat in a chair, facing camera, attempting to tell a simple joke, but constantly distracting himself into relating other humorous incidents. The joke itself was normally deliberately corny; the humour came from Corbett's wild tangents, as well as the anticlimax when he finally reached the punchline. A monologue, pronounced monolog, is a speech made by one person speaking his or her thoughts aloud or directly addressing a reader, audience, or character. ...

Piggy Malone and Charley Farley

It soon became a tradition of the shows to have a continuing "serial" story which progressed through the main six episodes of a series. These were often fairly bawdy tales with special guest-stars, occasionally featuring the comic detective characters "Piggy Malone" (Barker) and "Charley Farley" (Corbett). Probably the best-remembered of these serials, however, The Phantom Raspberry Blower of Old London Town, written by Spike Milligan "and a Gentleman", did not feature either Farley or Malone. Another memorable serial was The Worm That Turned; in this spoof piece of dystopian fiction, Diana Dors guest-starred as women ruled England, while men were housekeepers and wore women's clothes. According to Frazer Hines in an interview on the CD of the Doctor Who adventure The Invasion, the idea for The Worm That Turned was originally going to be an adventure for the Second Doctor, but was replaced with a different story instead.

Another regular feature of the shows was an elaborate musical segment in which Barker, Corbett, (often in drag) and company would sing a medley of songs in character, perhaps in barbershop, music hall, or other styles, with the original words altered to suit whatever comic situation they were portraying. There would also be a cabaret musician or group appearing as a special guest, including Elkie Brooks, Manhattan Transfer, Barbara Dickson, Elaine Paige and Phil Collins, the latter of whom also took part in a few sketches.

The show always opened and closed at the newsdesk, which featured the Ronnies as newsreaders, reading spoof news items. This gave rise to the famous catchphrase at the end of each show: A catch phrase is a phrase or expression that is popularized, usually through repeated use, by a real person or fictional character. ...

Corbett: So it's "Goodnight" from me.
Barker: And it's "Goodnight" from him.
Both: Goodnight.

This line was recently used in the second series of the BBC production of Robin Hood.


Following the departure of Morecambe and Wise from the BBC in 1978, The Two Ronnies became the BBC's flagship comedy programme, regularly gaining the top viewing figures for the critical Christmas Day audience battle. A memorable Radio Times cover for the double Christmas issue in 1973 had both double acts appearing side by side. Morecambe and Wise were a famous British comic double act comprising Eric Morecambe OBE and Ernie Wise OBE. The act lasted four decades until Morecambes death in 1984. ...

The pairing made no new shows after Christmas 1987, following Barker's sudden decision to retire from showbusiness. This went unknown to the audience and even the production team - the only person Barker told was Corbett, and they and their wives all went for a meal straight after the recording, keeping it a very low-key affair.


The show was parodied (unfairly in most commentators' view) by the Not The Nine O'Clock News team in 1984, as "The Three Ronnies" -- including footage of then-U.S. president Ronald Reagan.

In many respects, The Two Ronnies were ahead of their time for a flagship comedy. Whilst hardly bordering on what would become alternative comedy, the show featured many surreal sketches and continuing storylines which were a far cry from the more traditional approach adopted by peers, such as Morecambe & Wise, Little & Large and Cannon & Ball. There was a genuine intelligence within the comedy writing and both Ronnies were superb and highly believable character actors in their own right, both enjoying highly-successful side projects (Porridge, Open All Hours, Sorry! etc) with the BBC throughout the 1970s and 1980s.
