That is quite probably the best Two Ronnies' sketch (and not 'Four Candles' or even 'Mastermind'). It's beautifully written and perfectly executed. Barker's 'fabulous new girl' near the start is one of the finest utterances ever (although admittedly not really written for laughs). I try to get it into conversations as much as possible. You should try it! it will brighten your day not to mention those around you.
Other than my own picks, B is probably my favourite pick of the whole competition. I love The Jerky Boys and in particular the character of Frank Rizzo, I've even got an album or two. It's just his bizarre ideas and the way he speaks to everyone with such aggression in that thick Brooklyn accent, I find it laugh out loud funny. I enjoyed The Two Ronnies clip as well, for me these are the best picks in the final. The Two Rs sketch isn't quite as funny as the similar Mastermind, but is still good.

A is a more contrived setup than the Mastermind one, it's similar, but less clever with its internal logic. Just a way of cramming some innuendo together, really.
B's the kind of thing I hate, and it caught me with a sucker punch with the "you're laughing at me, ya crazy bastid". First time I've actually laughed out loud in the entire cup. "Fly him around the house, I'll take a whack at the little fuck myself". I doubt I'd want to hear much of it, but it's one of the best picks of the cup here.
