"Before I begin, I ought to say that even though I was abandoned as a baby on a mountainside and brought up by a she-wolf, before becoming a deckhand, jumping ship in Macau and getting stabbed in the waterfront area (which can be very painful) in a fight over the last green Fruit Pastille, I am not going to tell you that story. There is no mention of my time as a lumberjack, and my career as a double-agent remains a closed book. Anyway, this is the much more exciting story of how I, Ronald Balfour Corbett, the son of a baker in Edinburgh, became convinced that I had to become an actor. It is the story of how I pursued that goal and eventually achieved it, along the way finding fame as one of the Two Ronnies, and encountering an extraordinary cast of characters." - Ronnie Corbett

Ronnie Corbett is a comedian, actor, writer, and broadcaster who began his career in show business in the early 1950s. Soon he found himself offered roles in sitcoms, films, and family shows. His big break came when he joined The Frost Report alongside David Frost and John Cleese. It was here he met Ronnie Barker, and in 1971, The Two Ronnies were launched, becoming a national institution until they called it a day in the mid-1980s. Becoming something of a national treasure, Ronnie continued working in the TV industry into his 80s. He passed away in 2016.
