Ronald Wolfe was born in London. During World War II he worked as a Radio Engineer. After that he began working for the BBC, where in the early 1950's he was to meet Ronald Chesney, writing The Rag Trade together they then wrote Meet The Wife starring THORA HIRD. Then along came ON THE BUSES.
He has wrote for summer shows, pantomimes etc for such performers as Beryl Reid and Ken Dodd and Tommy Steele in Cinderella.
Ronald Wolfe is married with two daughters and lives in London
In his own words

"As a comedy writer, I am best known for the classic TV sitcoms The Rag Trade and On the Buses, but I have also devised and written other sitcoms, and written extensively for films, stage and radio. I now work as a public and after-dinner speaker and visiting lecturer.

In my work as Visiting Lecturer, I have been invited to speak and take Seminars and Workshops at The City University, London; the London Department of the New York University, the University of Barcelona, as well as at many other leading universities at home and abroad. Also at various institutes of learning which have departments of Drama, Film, TV, Radio and Media Studies.

As a Public and After-Dinner speaker, I have many amusing anecdotes and stories about the host of stars and performers I have written for and worked with, and in addition, I have been asked to be a member of the Sitcom Jury at national and international TV Festivals, and to sit on Comedy Show Panels.

Details of all this, and more, can be found in my book, Writing Comedy, a new, updated third edition of which was published in March 2003 by Robert Hale Ltd.

Right now, the work I am concentrating on is mainly as a Tutor / Lecturer, giving seminars and workshops at departments of Drama, Film and Visual Arts at universities and colleges, and at other institutes of learning teaching Media Studies.

I am also very active as a public and after-dinner speaker. My public speaking performances could, I suppose, be affectionately characterised as "Confessions of a Sitcom Writer" as they contain lots of amusing anecdotes and experiences about the many famous people I have known and worked with over many years.

Feedback from audiences shows that they especially love to hear the amusing stories about what the stars are really like and what goes on behind the scenes of the various shows.

Some of the performers I have worked with are:

Barbara Windsor

Gillian Taylforth

Ronnie Corbett

Sheila Hancock

Sid James

Thora Hird

Kenneth Williams

Beryl Reid

Benny Hill

Tony Hancock

Marty Feldman

carla Lane

Dick Emery

Warren Mitchell

June Whitfield

Frank Muir

Denis Norden

Reg Varney

Jack Dee

John Inman

Rula Lenska

Tony Robinson

Miriam Karlin

Peter Jones

and of course all of the cast from On The Buses.
