RIP Ronnie. He'll never be equalled.

There's an excellent selection of some of his jokes within the above link.

There is a serious cull of talent of all kinds from my formative years in progress during 2016.

I once worked with Ronnie Corbett.  That's a discussion for another time.  He lived in Croydon environs, and frequently featured in our local paper.
