Loved by millions and collected here for the first time is the very best of Ronnie Barker's classic sketches, monologues, songs and, of course, the brilliant two-handers that he wrote for The Two Ronnies. Celebrating his genius for comic wordplay, this wonderful collection includes Pismonouncers Unanimous, An Appeal for Women, Swedish for Beginners and the nation's favourite sketch, Fork Handles. As talented a writer as he was performer, Ronnie Barker was behind the best known Two Ronnies' material. His comedy writing was so prolific that he began using the pseudonym Gerald Wiley while working on Frost on Sunday, which he continued when making The Two Ronnies, so eager was he to ensure that his writing was judged on its merit alone. Showcasing the work of a true comic icon, and one of the best writers and comedians of the twentieth century, Fork Handles is every bit as warm and funny as Ronnie Barker himself
