British comedian Ronnie Corbett, best known for being one half of The Two Ronnies, passed away today at the age of 85.
Although Corbett only stood five foot tall, he was a comedic giant especially when paired with Ronnie Barker. They met while working on The Frost Report alongside the likes of future Monty Python stars John Cleese, Graham Chapman and Michael Palin. Barker and Corbett were drawn to each other's working-class backgrounds and the fact they didn't have movie star looks. The Two Ronnies was one of Britain's most popular comedies during the 1970's and 1980's. Barker passed away in 2005.
