In 2004, he was given a special BAFTA award and announced that he would make new episodes of The Two Ronnies with Ronnie Corbett. This was followed up by a role in the film My House in Umbria 2003. Barker has made occasional TV appearances since his retirement, most notably to play Winston Churchill's butler - a 'straight' role, but with opportunities for comic asides - in the BBC drama The Gathering Storm 2002. His other credits include the (almost) silent films Futtock's End, The Picnic and By The Sea, the sit-coms His Lordship Entertains and Clarence, the plays Rub A Dub Dub and Mum, and the LP A Pint of Old and Filthy.
He provided a good deal of the sketches and songs for The Two Ronnies, and contributed material to many other radio and TV shows - often under a variety of assumed names (most famously 'Gerald Wiley'), so that his work would be considered on merit. He is also an accomplished comedy writer. Both Porridge and Open All Hours originated as part of the Seven of One series. Jason apeared in several episodes of Porridge, and co-starred as the assistant to Barker's stuttering shopkeeper in the sitcom Open All Hours, written by Roy Clarke (who also wrote Last of the Summer Wine).
Both he and Jason are widely recognised as having an excellent sense of comic timing and delivery, which accounts for their enduring popularity. On television, he wrote and performed many satirical skits in The Frost Report, and starred with David Jason as a bumbling aristocrat in the sit-com Hark at Barker. His first radio appearance was in 1956; he went on to play a variety of minor characters in The Navy Lark, a navy based sit-com on the BBC Light Programme (still available on tape and frequently rerun on BBC 7). He then worked as an actor and assistant stage manager with the Manchester Repertory Company, but was soon spotted by Sir Peter Hall who gave him a West End role.
In 1993 Barker dedicated his autobiography to Shelley, whom he called one of the "three wise men who directed my career; without men like these, there would be no theatre.". The two appeared together there, in Ben Travers's A Cuckoo in the Nest and, subsequently, in a number of other venues and roles. His began his showbusiness career when he left his safe job in an Oxford bank to join the city's Playhouse Theatre, then under the actor-management of Frank Shelley. His skills as a character actor, his love for and facility with the English language, and his gift for comedy have made him a well-loved performer.
His best-known appearances were as Ronnie Corbett's partner in the long-running TV variety show The Two Ronnies, and as Fletch in the sitcom Porridge. September 25, 1929), more popularly known as Ronnie Barker is a British comic actor. Ronald William George Barker OBE (b.
