Sad news sad.gif It took a long time for Corbett's talent to be fully appreciated as he was seen as playing second fiddle to Barker in the Two Ronnies. It's only really since Barker retired that Corbett came to be seen as a funny man in his own right.

Spot on. In his later years he has been very up for a laugh with younger generations of comics, and happy to push the boundaries as far as his public image is concerned. Very Loveable man.

Maybe it deserves its own thread, as did Bowie.

Celebrities with a bigger impact tend to get their own thread. It's the not quite as well-known people that get posted in there.

I saw this today. It is indeed very sad news.

Also I did not know he was 5 ft. I thought he was smaller than that. It makes me also realise just how small I actually am. sad.gif
