9780099545569: Remembering Ronnie Barker

Ronnie Barker was one of our most respected and best-loved comedy actors and here, in this fascinating biography, Richard Webber delves deep in to the heart of Barker's life and career, peppering his narrative with original and incisive memories from some of Barker's closest contemporaries, including Ronnie Corvette, Michael Palin, and Barry Cryer. Star of the much-adored comedy classics Porridge, The Two Ronnies—one of the most successful and long-running television comedy shows ever on British television—and Open All Hours, Ronnie Barker was universally admired by the public and industry insiders alike. From his early days writing for and performing skits on The Frost Report right up to his retirement in 1988, he lit up television screens across the country with his wonderful gift for comedy and his remarkable skill for character acting. Effortlessly funny, universally adored, and an actor and writer responsible for some of Britain's best-loved and most-respected comedy, Ronnie Barker was a true comedy legend. Here he's brought to the page in winning style as he's remembered by those who best loved and knew him. Include interviews with some of Barker's closest colleagues, including Ronnie Corbett, Dick Clement, and Ian La Frenais, Michael Palin, Barry Cryer, David Renwick, Josephine Tewson, and Lynda Baron.
