British comedians metaphorically cover technology

Have you ever considered the possibility of a comedy sketch covering Blackberry, Orange, Apple, Windows and the Xbox 360? The One Ronnie (opens in new tab), a fantastic British comedy sketch show from the BBC with Ronnie Corbett has done just this. Turning 80 in December 2010, Ronnie is a comic legend and has appeared alongside the top names in the industry.

In one clip, he is joined by Harry Enfield. Doing what they do best, they cover the technological category of personal computers and mobile phones. Although Windows Phone 7 isn't mentioned (probably for the best), the sheer comedy value of the amusement the products from Microsoft, Apple, RIM and Orange play host to is worth every second.

  • Absolutely hilarious! My dad sent this to me a week or so ago. Once I explained to him what "Orange" was, he thought the entire thing was even more hilarious :0
  • Absolutely hilarious. I just couldn't stop laughing. Ronnie Corbett is trully a comedy giant. This brings back memories of him and Ronnie Barker of "The Two Ronnies" sketches of the seventies and eightes.
  • At least his dongle didn't have a virus.
