Dawn French videos
We have seen the comedy team of Dawn French and Jennifer Saunders in a variety of shows. Many of the programs in which they appeared were created by them, but one British sitcom that aired on BBC starred French and Saunders but they did not create it. That program, Let Them Eat Cake was set in 1782, several years before the French Revolution. Although the show only ran for one year with a handful of episodes, many people continue to find it amusing down to this day, some 17 years later. If you are a fan of the show or [More]
Many of us spend a considerable amount of time watching television or perhaps going to the films. In either case, we are doing so to pass the time and because we enjoy being entertained in that way. One of the ways in which we are entertained is through comedy, and the team of Dawn French and Jennifer Saunders has certainly provided us with a lot of laughter over the years. More than likely, you have seen this comedy team in a variety of situations, each of which is certain to make you laugh. They just seem to have that type [More]
Many of us have enjoyed the comedy of Dawn French and Jennifer Saunders over the years. It seems as if anytime they are on the screen together, they just seem to play off of each other brilliantly. You can’t help but laugh at the things that they say and sometimes, they don’t even need to say something funny in order for it to be the most hilarious thing you will see all day. As is true with many different comedians, it is not always what you see on the screen but it is also what takes place behind the scenes [More]
It seems like all of us run into some type of look-alike every once in a while. Perhaps it is somebody who looks like a relative and they may be such a dead ringer that we even make the mistake ourselves. Then again, we may hear that somebody looks an awful lot like us. In either case, it can make you feel just a little bit strange when you think that there is a duplicate out there somewhere. When Cher and Dawn French were on the Graham Norton show, they began discussing look-alikes. In the case of Cher, it was [More]
You never quite know what is going to happen when you appear on a chat show. Sometimes, things may go rather well and you are really only there to give an interview. At other times, however, you might find that things take a rather unusual turn and before you know it, you are just improvising your way through it. When that takes place, it is best if you just put on a smile and roll with it. When Dawn French went on the Graham Norton Show to promote her own book, she probably thought she would basically be taking part [More]
When most of us think about the team of Dawn French and Jennifer Saunders, our minds automatically think about their comedy and how they make us laugh. It certainly is true that they have that ability, and they seem to play off of each other brilliantly in anything that they do together. In fact, they are quite possibly the best known female comedy team of all time. That being said, there are also going to be times when they take things down a level and get a little serious. That is what you are going to see in this video, [More]
There are times when we tell a joke and it seems as if people just can’t stop laughing but at other times, they don’t seem to land all that well. When you are telling a joke yourself, it is a rather uncomfortable situation but if you are standing back and watching it happen to somebody else, it actually makes the joke a lot better. The Vicar of Dibley was telling a classic but she was telling it to her usual audience, and it just wasn’t landing. Of course, when Alice Tinker is the person listening to the joke, you can’t [More]
When most of us think about Dawn French, we think about her brilliant comedy. Some of her more famous work include the French and Saunders Show, where she played alongside Jennifer Saunders and the Vicar of Dibley. As we begin to look into her carreer further, we start to see that those parts were only scratching the surface of what this funny woman was able to do, and this little skit is no exception. This skit is from a very funny comedy could show that was played in the UK in the 1980s. In this particular episode, there were many [More]
What do you do when you get frightened to help calm down again? Many of us have our own particular method, but you may want to try what was used by Alice Tinker in this brilliant Vicar of Dibley clip. Rather than being frightened of the storm outside, she decides to sing a Julie Andrews tune, A Few of My Favourite Things. Have you ever had a song in your head and it just seems as if you can’t quite get all of the words right? Obviously, that was what Alice was experiencing in this clip, and it is absolutely [More]
Have you ever heard of people celebrating Christmas in July? It is for those who just can’t get enough of the holiday, and they are ready for it before the summer is ever over. Although it’s a little late to be celebrating Christmas in July at this point in the year, there is still the possibility for an epic Santa Claus joke in October. You could be told a Santa Claus joke by anyone but if I had to make the choice, it would definitely be by Dawn French. Her role on the Vicar of Dibley alongside Emma Chambers has [More]
There are a number of notable characters from the British sitcom, the Vicar of Dibley, but most fans appreciate the humour and interaction between Dawn French and Emma Chambers. They play off of each other brilliantly and you can’t help but laugh anytime the two of them are together in the same scene. Perhaps one of our favourite scenes out of any show is when the vicar sits down with Alice Tinker and tells her a joke. Dawn French is a master joke teller, and, watching video clips such as this is a great way to put a smile on [More]
Dawn French is perhaps best known as being an English actress, but she also has many other skills as well. She is also a brilliant writer and, as you will see in this video, quite a comedienne as well. Of course, most of us are familiar with the humour of Dawn French and this video is no exception. It takes place with her appearing as the Vicar of Dibley, and she is telling one of her famous jokes to Alice Tinker. Can you imagine what it would be like to sit in front of Dawn French and have her tell [More]
There is nothing quite like a good joke to get your day started off on the right foot. Of course, it is not only the subject matter that can get us chuckling, it is the way that the joke is presented as well. When it comes to Dawn French, you know that it is going to be told masterfully and with the joke she tells here, I see a good, solid belly laugh in your future. The problem is, the vicar is telling this joke to Alice Tinker, so it doesn’t go over quite as expected. Yes, it is extremely [More]
What is the first thing that comes to your mind when you think of Dawn French? Like most people, you think about her comedy or perhaps her shows, such as the Vicar of Dibley. You might even think of some of her skits that included other comedians, such as Jennifer Saunders. Although you certainly would be correct in any of those instances, there is something you should not leave out of the mix. Her ability to DANCE! In this brilliant video, Dawn shows her stuff throughout the years. In some cases, she is on stage with Jennifer Saunders and sometimes [More]
“According to Yes” is Dawn French’s latest bestseller released in hardback in October of 2015. In this video clip, she talks about how she writes and gives us a little insight into the real person as opposed to her wonderful characters that we all know and love so well. Being Dawn and even though this is supposed to be a serious interview about all things literary you just know that she won’t be able to resist making some funny comments and exoressions it’s just inbuilt in her, and needless to say, she doesn’t disappoint. For those who don’t know when [More]
If there is one thing that all of us enjoy doing, it’s having a good laugh. It’s a great way to get your day started and if you are heading home from a long day at work, it can give you that little shot in the arm to keep going. There are many ways to get in your daily chuckle but the three people in this sketch are the top way to do it.

There are certain comedy teams that have the ability to make you smile, even before they start telling any jokes. Just knowing that they are together and are about to start on their routine is sure to make you smile. Sometimes, a group of comedians will get together and, although they don’t often perform on the same stage at the same time, you can’t help but laugh. They just seem to time their jokes perfectly. The group of comedians in this video don’t always perform together but you are going to love the fact that they are together for this [More]
When we get together with friends and family, one of the things that is almost sure to happen is for someone to tell a joke. When they are told properly, they do more than break the ice, they make us feel good as well. In this skit, we see a rather familiar scene, with Dawn French as the Vicar of Dibley telling a joke to her sidekick, Alice Tinker. As usual, Alice doesn’t quite get the humour of it all. The joke is about a young boy who was born without a body, he only has a head. When he [More]
There are many of us who appreciate a good joke but that doesn’t mean that everybody is going to follow the same line of humour. As a matter of fact, we may tell the funniest joke that we have ever heard but if we tell it to the wrong person, it is going to end up falling flat at the end. It can be quite a disappointment but if you are fast enough, you just may be able to save the laugh. Something similar happens every time the Vicar of Dibley tells Alice a joke. The joke may be funny [More]
If there is one thing that most of us appreciate, it’s a good joke. Of course, there are many different types of jokes and not all of them are going to be to our liking. From time to time, however, we end up hearing one of those jokes that just seems to have a universal appeal. It looks like The Vicar of Dibley has one of those jokes in this clip and she is telling it to Alice. I have to admit, I always love to hear Dawn French telling a joke. I don’t know if it is the timing [More]
There is a certain talent to telling a joke that not all of us possess. We may hear the joke told by someone who does not have the natural ability to make us laugh and it could invoke a chuckle but if we hear it from a really good joke teller, the same joke could make us laugh out loud. That is why we really appreciate when certain people tell jokes but others we may roll our eyes when they start telling one. Then again, there are certain people who are professionals at telling jokes and they even make a [More]
It can be quite exciting when you have heard the perfect joke and you can’t wait to tell it to your friends and family. You begin by building anticipation, letting them know that you are about to tell them something very funny and then you launch into the story. By the time you reach the punchline, you would expect that everybody is laughing out loud and practically falling on the floor. Unfortunately, there are far too many times when our jokes land flat. That is what happened to Dawn French in this wonderful video. It isn’t the subject of the [More]
There are certain people that make us smile when they walk into a room. Perhaps they are a close friend of ours and it seems like they always have something funny to say. It may also be a family member that makes us feel comfortable when they are nearby. At times, however, there is someone who is famous and, although we may not see them in person, they still have the ability to make us feel good when we see them on TV. For many of us, Dawn French is just such a personality and it seems that she can [More]
There are certain things that many of us enjoy in life, and many of those revolve around the dinner table. As a matter of fact, it is often said that it is difficult to be angry when we are eating dinner with others, but it also appears as if it is difficult to not smile when you are eating dinner with Dawn French. That is going to become evident in this brilliant video that includes some other very funny individuals. When Jennifer Saunders has Dawn French over for some nibbles, you better believe that there is going to be some [More]
