Book Collection: Ronnie In The Chair by Spike Mullins

"My great grandfather was killed at Custer's last stand - he didn't take any part in the fighting, he was camping nearby and went over to complain about the noise."

Words that may be familiar from the voice of Ronnie Corbett, delivered from that oversize chair in his wonderful solo spots in The Two Ronnies but written by comic script-writer Spike Mullins who compiled some thirty four witty monologues for Ronnie In The Chair (Michael Joseph) in 1978.

This book is a nice "pick up at any time, open up a page and dive in" title, fusing memories of Ronnie Corbett's great comic delivery with some cleverly constructed comic scripts (and some lively illustrations from Bristow cartoonist Frank Dickens).
