Ronnie Corbett





Have I Got News for You (guest host)

Push the Button (voiceover)

Small Talk


Scottish comedian, making up 50% (in numbers) and 30% (in height) of the comedy legend that is The Two Ronnies where his monologues and repartee with partner Ronnie Barker are fondly remembered. In the early days, he was a regular on clever BBC comedy series such as The Frost Report and, er, Crackerjack. In addition, he played repressed librarian Timothy ("Language, Timothy!") Lumsden in the 1980's BBC sitcom Sorry!, having also previously played a similarly downtrodden character in the 1970's sitcom "Now Look Here...!" and its sequel, "The Prince of Denmark". He now makes occasional guest appearances on TV, almost always on yet another bloomin' BAFTA tribute (which, ironically, is how he was originally paired up with Barker).


His middle name is Balfour.

He stood in for Terry Wogan on "Wogan" for one week in 1987.

During his time on Small Talk, he was called a number of amusing things by the children, including "Mr Corset", "Mr Carpet", "Mr Courgette" and "Mr Carrot".
