This review is from: And It's Goodnight from Him . . .: The Autobiography of the Two Ronnies (Paperback)
This book gave an insight into Ronnie Barker and Ronnie Corbett and I enjoyed the book.
Ronnie Corbett goes on to tell us that he worked at a club and then he was involved with the Frost Report and that is how he met Ronnie Barker.
What I liked about this book is that some sketches that they had done in the Two Ronnies were there in the book to read so as I read I could imagine what went on as I have seen the sketches on TV particularly The Four Candles Sketch. Also in the book was the Upper Class Sketch where the Two Ronnies were standing on boxes alongside John Cleese.
It was interesting to read about how much time and effort was put into the making of The Two Ronnies and its surprising because we the readers do not know about Behind the Scenes work involved in the programme.
I wasn't keen when the locations were mentioned and I think this is because I wasn't sure where the actual places were.
On the whole I think this is a very good book and I think that if Ronnie Barker were alive today he would have been very pleased with Ronnie Corbett's efforts because they worked brilliantly as a team.
Anybody who is a fan of The Two Ronnies, this is the book for you and you won't be disappointed.
