Python, the Ronnies, Pete & Dud and More Immortalised on Comedy Stamps

By Gary Cutlack on at

A new set of stamps has gone on sale in the UK today, with the Royal Mail unfortunately choosing the least funny day of the year to release its Comedy Greats series.

Such people you may remember being funny on the telly as The Two Ronnies, Morecambe and Wise, French and Saunders and Peter Cook and Dudley Moore star on the new series, all of which have a large portrait of the stars in the centre with a small cutout of one of their more famous comedy creations in the background. And a silhouette of the queen. And a number. And probably glue on the back to hold it on the envelope but we've not had confirmation of that from the postman yet. [Royal Mail]
