Ronnie Barker’s Statue Hits The Right Note: Photos

by | 30th, September 2010

THE stature to the late Ronnie Barker was unveiled at the Waterside Theatre, Aylesbury by his widow Joy.

Sir David Jason and Ronnie Corbett sidled up to give the bronze a once over.

Barker is portrayed not as himself but as one of his comic characters, the habitual criminal Norman Stanley Fletcher.

The famous people from the telly only really exist on the telly. It’s where they are at their best and where fans want to remember them. If you want to raise a smile and not look maudlin show the character not the man.

Time for a joke or two:

  • “The search for the man who terrorises nudist camps with a bacon slicer goes on. Inspector Lemuel Jones had a tip-off this morning, but hopes to be back on duty tomorrow.”
  • “The West Drayton man who has kept himself awake every night for 17 years by snoring has at least found the answer. He’s going to sleep in another room.”
