The one Ronnie
17 November 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Ronnie Corbett more than deserved this one off tribute last Christmas and it was good to see so many of todays big name comedians getting involved to join in the fun.

Not all the sketches as classics but there are more laughs in this half an hour show than there is in most of the BBC's sitcoms. The blackberry sketch in particular is this shows equivalent of the famous fork candles sketch.

It is quality family entertainment as well and goodness knows there isn't enough of that at the the moment.

Congratulations to all involved in the making of this festive treat that reminds us what a great talent Ronnie Corbett is.
