‘Post-Hypnotic Suggestion’ — “The Two Ronnies”

“The Two Ron­nies” was a British com­e­dy team of Ron­nie Bark­er and Ron­nie Cor­bett. Their BBC pro­gram of the same name involved a vari­ety of dif­fer­ent com­e­dy modes, includ­ing sketch­es, mono­logues, seri­als and the show clos­er, a par­o­dy of news pro­grams. Short jokes (Ron­nie Cor­bet was sig­nif­i­cant­ly short­er than his part­ner) were also a stock com­po­nent of their repertoire.

Ron­nie B: And now a sketch about an enor­mous embar­rass­ment at a small, inti­mate par­ty. Ron­nie Cor­bett will play the small, inti­mate party.
Ron­nie C: And Ron­nie Bark­er will play the enor­mous embarrassment.

Their most impres­sive pro­duc­tion was “The Pic­nic”, a half-hour show, the day in the life of a minor noble fam­i­ly and their ser­vants, which had no dia­log just sight and sound gags. The series is avail­able in DVD only in Region 2 PAL formats.
