Ronnie Barker


An idol of mine has passed away. A character, for me known only through the television. Family members have travelled halfway across the world to meet him. A comic genius, "the most unfunny man in the world without a script", he was responsible for so much of the british comedy loved the world over. Known for his amazing wordplay and impeccable timing, his shoes far too big to ever fill.

Ronnie, you will be sadly missed.

Re: Ronnie Barker

Yep Prud he will be sadly missed, he was a true genius of comedy timing & a really funny guy, anyone who has seen the "Fork handles/ four candles" will know what we're on about.

My favorite role he played was Norman Stanley Fletcher in Porridge, no matter how much its repeated its still good to watch.

Guess its goodnight from all of us Ron :(
