Yesterday it was a young David Jason, who as a young man appeared on Do Not Adjust Your Set. He made a name for himself as Ronnie Barker’s hapless assistant Granville in Open All Hours. However he is rightly adored for Only Fools and Horses. There are so many great sketches but in terms of timing this one takes some beating. Or the chandelier. Enjoy.

Tomorrow it is Ronnie Barker

About TanGental

My name is Geoff Le Pard. Once I was a lawyer; now I am a writer. I've published several books: a four book series following Harry Spittle as he grows from hapless student to hapless partner in a London law firm; four others in different genres; a book of poetry; four anthologies of short fiction; and a memoir of my mother. I have several more in the pipeline. I have been blogging regularly since 2014, on topic as diverse as: poetry based on famous poems; memories from my life; my garden; my dog; a whole variety of short fiction; my attempts at baking and food; travel and the consequent disasters; theatre, film and book reviews; and the occasional thought piece. Mostly it is whatever takes my fancy. I avoid politics, mostly, and religion, always. I don't mean to upset anyone but if I do, well, sorry and I suggest you go elsewhere. These are my thoughts and no one else is to blame. If you want to nab anything I post, please acknowledge where it came from.

    Comedic timing is certainly an art! As writer, you get to play off your characters, set up the position of one as the other takes a fall. It would be interesting to hear your take on how you write comedy (sometime…not now, of course). I definitely see your influences, dare I say, muses?
