A true great of British comedy, Ronald 'Ronnie' Corbett, is hailed as one of the finest comedians of his generation. Son of an Edinburgh baker, Ronnie rose to fame as one half of the infamous Two Ronnies alongside Ronnie Barker. Known for his versatility, quick-wit, family-friendly dialogue, and meandering monologues, Corbett was a staple of British television for more than 50 years. In his autobiography, he tells the complete story, from his school technique of estimating the height of a girl before daring to ask her to dance, to his days as a night club barman in London, and finally, to his decades long career as a stand-up and sitcom star. Including tales of how he first met David Frost, John Cleese and Michael Palin, this book is written with all of Ronnie's trademark warmth and wit. Celebrating his life and career, this is Ronnie's own honest and definitive account of his truly dramatic journey.
About the Author
Comedian, actor, writer and broadcaster, Ronnie Corbett began his career in show business in the early 1950s. Before long, he found himself being offered roles in sitcoms, films and family shows. But 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-eighties. Becoming something of a national treasure, Ronnie continued working in the TV industry into his 80s. He sadly passed away in March 2016.
