"High Nigh"

John Owens played the part of 'The assistant' in "High Nigh" and this was Johns personal script.

John first worked with Ronnie Barker on the Frost Report in 1970 and went on to appear in every series of the Two Ronnies apart from one.

Amongst his various roles John was 'The Phantom Raspberry Blower of old London Town' although perhaps most famously he was ' Mr Jones' the other shop assistant in the iconic Fork Handles sketch. Mr Jones appears at the end after Ronnie Corbett stalks off. John has the last line in the sketch and reveals the sign 'Billhooks'.

To accompany this sale of a number of scripts John has written a very interesting 2 page letter that talks fondly of his experiences on The Two Ronnies up to 1987.

A copy of this letter will be provided with this script.
