    It is extremely tragic. He was a remarkable man and a great comic actor. He'll be greatly missed by millions for sure, I for one will be included in that number.

    A good night from me, and a good night from him.

    Yes it is, a great loss for British comedy.

    The Two Ronnies was a popular show on this side of the pond as well. My dad and I used to watch it together all the time when I was a kid. Another talented and funny man gone.

    The show "The Two Ronnies" was an excellent stekch show. Ronnie Barker was a remarkable comic actor and his diversity was amazing. But let's not forget the hilarious "Porridge" and "Open All Hours" - not to mention his other great comedy shows. I've been down the street where "Open All Hours" was filmed.

    I'd heard about Don Adams too, on the radio. Shame. No more agent 86 or Inspector Gadget.
