This is my autobiography, the exciting story of how I, Ronald Corbett, the son of an Edinburgh baker, became convinced that I had to seek my fortune and become an actor, of how I pursued that goal, found fame on television as one of The Two Ronnies, and managed to meet a fabulous cast of extraordinary people along the way.
First I'll take you back to my schooldays and reveal the technique I developed for estimating the height of a girl before daring to ask her to dance. I'll explain how I first met David Frost, John Cleese and Michael Palin, and shamelessly reveal how I once played Othello to Danny La Rue's Desdemona, having just had dinner with Laurence Olivier. I'll also tell you about the time I was suddenly struck down by a mysterious illness that destroyed my sense of balance and prevented me from going on stage for several years.
Altogether I must admit, it is a truly dramatic story. I only hope my mother won't be too shocked!

Ronnie Corbett reads his autobiography, first published in 2000.
He is a pleasant enough companion as he recounts his (mostly) fortunate life. No skeletons in cupboards here.
I listen to most of my audiobooks more than once, but won't bother with this one. It's not that it's bad, it's just a bit 'beige'.
