The world has lost a true comic genius. I can only echo CB's words.

Just noticed the posting on the forum - such sad news. I loved Ronnie Barker - he's been one of my favourites since I was a kid. I grew up watching him in 'The Two Ronnies and 'Porridge' and my favourite, 'Open All Hours'.

Sad news indeed.

Sad news about his passing but what great gifts he gave to the world. I bet/hope he died pretty satisfied with his life.

My dad's going to be crushed.

Same here .... a comic genius that made Christmas day with the family just about bearable
Nicked from Sky News ...a few jokes ..

:: "The man who invented the zip fastener was today honoured with a lifetime peerage. He will now be known as the Lord of the Flies."

:: "The toilets at a local police station have been stolen. Police say they have nothing to go on."

:: "In a packed programme tonight we will be talking to an out-of-work contortionist who says he can no longer make ends meet."

Porridge will always be my favourite

Aye, big shame...just been getting into some of his old shows as we got series one of Porridge a little while back, and it's still really great, better now than when I was a kid as I get more of the jokes...about to get series two as well...be missed...he was a pretty quiet bloke, but seen him around a couple times a few years ago when I was working in Chipping Norton.
