And It's Goodnight from Him . . . : The Autobiography of the Two Ronnies Paperback

4 out of 5 (1 rating)


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.

Review by

Very funny book, rather in the style of one of Ronnie Corbett's monolgues from the show. A lot of factual information about both ronnies and the show also lies between the amusing anacedotes. I would recommend it to anyone who likes The Two Ronnies, or fancies a good laugh.
