So it’s goodnight from ‘im then.

Barker.jpg Ronnie Barker — the inimitable Fletcher, the unmistakable Arkwright — is dead at 76. Heart failure, with his wife of nearly forty years at his side.
*snif*
Together with Dave Allen, Barker formed much of my early ideas about comedy and is intrinsic to my personal definition of “funny”. He was by all accounts a rather private individual, and I certainly have very little impression of the man behind the comedy. I’m still going to miss him.
(I nicked the picture from Wikipedia. Fletch would’ve wanted it that way.)
