Take Some Time Today to ‘ave a Laugh

This BBC video stars Ronnie Corbett,  half of the legendary comedy team which includes the late Ronnie Barker.

Corbett and Barker’s show, “The Two Ronnies,” was a staple of English TV schedules since it began in the 1970s. This clip is from “The One Ronnie,” a special commissioned to celebrate Ronnie Corbett’s 80th birthday.  It is produced by a couple of my personal favorites:  Little Britain stars Matt Lucas and David Walliams.

In an interview with Mark Lawson for BBC Radio Four’s Front Row, Corbett admitted to divided loyalties while making “The One Ronnie.”

“I suppose a bit of me every now and again felt slightly disloyal doing it with other folk, but I enjoyed it very much.”

BTW: Orange, as referenced in the sketch, is a wireless service provider.
