Millions of viewers have lapped up the sketches of doctors' surgeries, middle-class parties, government ministry broadcasts as well as the regular news headlines, Ronnie Corbett monologues, Ronnie Barker word-play sketches and fabulous comic songs.
The Two Ronnies Series Two features all eight side-splitting episodes from this season, continuing the adventures of recurring private detectives Charley Farley, Piggy Malone and The Worm That Turned. Don't miss Barker and Corbett's musical parody of "Carmen" or the duo's own unique take on traditional Welsh tunes.
As well as writing their own material, they are joined by the creme- de-la-creme of British comedy writers, including Spike Milligan, David Renwick, as well as Monty Python's Michael Palin and John Cleese. Ronnie Corbett and Ronnie Barker created some of the greatest comedy characters and legendary sketches which have stood the test of time and are still hilariously funny!
One is tall and stocky, the other is tiny and inoffensive... and this is yet another great batch of comedy genius by these two giants of the British comedy genre.
I grew up watching these two dance, sing, joke and act their way through plot after plot, style after style... and I took great pleasure from the wit and hilarity they offered. Now, British wit is an often under-rated comedy these days, because of the flood of Americanised slap-stick that crowds our screens... but our British roots still hold me firm, at least in the comedy field. You can see it still influencing Kiwi comedy, you can see it roughed up by Billy Connelly, twisted by Rowan Atkinson, made somewhat risque by Benny Hill and Kenny Everett, or just made surreal by the likes of the 'Monty Python' team... and it STILL remains funny... because it has so many layers, a little thought reveals one joke, and a lot of thought reveals a raft of subtle humour.
Overall, this is a great follow on from Series 1 and a must-have for any serious Brit-Wit lover.

Random listing from 'Entertainment'...
Designed by Kiwis, for Kiwis, this pack is aimed at the serious whizzzz-BANG enthusiast.
Great for larger-area displays where the sharp reports will reach even the furthest audience members' ears, and echo off buildings with style, and the projectiles will light up the night sky as they leave trails of fire behind them, to expire in bursts of brilliant colour.
