Ronnie Barker began his career as a stage actor and then moved to radio and television. He was described by the BBC as "one of the leading figures of British television comedy." The Independent called him "a master of television sitcom" The Guardian said he was "much loved. . . Both as an actor and a writer he was recognised as a master of pyrotechnic puns, surreal behaviour in public and private places and crackling cross-chat." One of his best-known shows was The Two Ronnies, with his comedy partner Ronnie Corbett, which aired on BBC1 from 1971 to 1987.
