RIP Ronnie Corbett

As I've said before, it seems like we are losing people who are culturally significant each week now and today brings the sad news that Ronnie Corbett has passed away surrounded by his family at the age of 85

Anyone who grew up or was around in the 70s and 80s will have fond memories of Corbett, as one half of The Two Ronnies alongside Ronnie Barker, or for his sitcom Sorry! He also starred in such films as No Sex Please, We're British and Casino Royale. He was small in stature, but proved to be a giant of British comedy.



  1. 'The Two Ronnies' was one of the TV highlights of my teens. Mr. Corbett was much loved and deservedly so. RIP, Ron.
