- in Classic
Yesterday brought the sad news that Ronnie Corbett had died aged 85.
For those of us from a certain generation, his talent leaves us with many great comedy memories. Most notably, of course, from The Two Ronnies but also from his appearances on The Frost Report and, more recently, Extras with Ricky Gervais.
You probably have your own favourite sketches but here are just a few of Ronnie Corbett's classics.
RIP Ronnie and thank you for giving us so many laughs.

First shown on the 7th April 1966, the satirical sketch featuring Ronnie Corbett, Ronnie Barker and John Cleese. Enjoy this timeless classic:

Answering the Question Before Last
This Mastermind spoof is another great sketch from The Two Ronnies. “What sort of artist?“. Brilliant!
