Those of you who follow this regularly (yes, both of you), will know that i take my comedy very seriously.
As such, today has been a sad day, having heard of the death of a British comedy great, Ronnie Barker. My own personal tribute is to say that my memories of The Two Ronnies, Open All Hours and Porridge (which he thought was his best work, and I heartily agree) are of sitting at home, with my family, and laughing and laughing and laughing. His work is a part of my childhood and growing up, and having just watched the tribute on BBC 1, his gift for acting and comedy hasn't dimmed a bit in the years since. Wonderful stuff. A sad loss.
