The Two Ronnies first met in the early 1960s writing and performing with the likes of John Cleese on The Frost Report. The Two Ronnies was launched in 1971 and became a national institution until they called it a day in the mid-Eighties. Much of the material was written by Ronnie Barker but there were classic contributions from the likes of Spike Mullins, Peter Vincent and David Renwick. Ronnie Barker also starred in Porridge and Open All Hours, while Ronnie Corbett made his name with the sitcom Sorry!
