Richard & Ronnie in Porridge
23 February 2006 | by lesleyparishSee all my reviews

I recently saw an episode of porridge where Richard Beckinsale and Ronnie Barker accidentally escaped from prison and went wondering around the British countryside. The pair are the funniest comedy duo in history. In 1999 I was lucky enough to purchase a copy of A Further Stir Of Poridge. The book has been signed by Richard Beckinsale, Ronnie Barker, Peter Vaughan and Christopher Biggin. It must be a very rare piece of comedy history as it has both of Britians best loved comedy personalities signatures in it. I have recently put it on the best known online auction site for as I feel it will get a good price. If anyone is interested please visit my listing and bid if you like.
