A great entertainer.
Really? My son was just talking to Michael Bentine the other day. Still alive and well. Sorry for any spelling errors!
'...and goodbye from him.'
Another icon gone.
A lovely, lovely man who was great entertainment. RIP.
Fantastic comedian and great entertainer. Irritated with Bruce Forsyth though - 'this is the saddest day of my life' - seriously???
Just listened to Bruce Forsyth speaking about it and what he actually said was that it was "one of the saddest days of my life". That seems fair enough when speaking about a friend.
I didn't hear what Bruce Forsyth said, but I should imagine that it would be a very sad day for him, as another of his generation goes.
A tribute to Ronnie Corbett by great artist Will McPhail:
The Two Ronnies gave us what has become a rarity now in that they wrote and performed good,clean, clever fun. I was lucky to have grown up watching such talent on TV.
I was a bit sniffy about them at the time. Fancied myself as a bit more radical. But they made me laugh even when I thought it probably wasn't the cool thing to do.
Laugh a lot!
A wee man with big talent. The world needs more good comedians of his type rather tan the half baked ones of today. RIP
Read the funniest quotes on the BBC news page. Not all belly-busters but some real gems! RIP.
If he's been good his shade will be playing St Andrews, otherwise he will be paying extra for Wentworth.
A genuinely funny man- fond memories of The Two Ronnies and Sorry.
Such as that idiot who was with Helen Skelton on the BBCs boat race coverage.
BBC commissioning editors have a bizarre, even perverse reference for modern self-styled comedians. Not that the boat race is worth covering. Loads of posh boys pretending to be athletes.
