Who could forget Ronnie Barker's hilarious pispronounciation, Mr Corbett's witty monologues, the risqué limericks, the puns, the patter and the parody?
So enjoy another fun-filled feast of verbal fireworks, inspired classic comedy from the two one-offs who said goodnight but not goodbye.
A great collection of The Two Ronnies. Especially for people who have problems with worms.

I really enjoyed The Two Ronnies TV show when it ran years ago and I was looking forward to listening to this audio compilation. The Ronnies sound great and I love their humor and wordplay. But, almost everything they say, even the least funny remarks, gets a 2.2 second full volume laughtrack that shuts off as suddenly as it turns on. It is so annoying I can only listen to the audiobook a few minutes at a time. This is also true of another great series, Yes, Prime Minister; but not true of its predecessor, Yes, Minister; so why BBC Audio or whoever produces these audio versions chooses to amp up the phony laughs on some of these audio versions is a mystery, and a big disappointment, not to mention a danger to my hearing. I've factored in the obnoxious use of a laughtrack in my Overall and Performance ratings here.
This download is pure comedy Gold. Covering the sketches and Monologues from the best of the Two Ronnies Shows, it is quite simply BRILLIANT. Whether it be Corbett's Laughs from the Big Chair to Barkers colourful comedy characters - this title is a laugh a minute.
