Dawn French videos
Sometimes we all need a good laugh and the best way to get one is to hear a joke. When they are told right and by the right person it doesn’t even matter if it is a particularly good joke. We just need it to be entertaining and then we get the laugh we need. When the Vicar of Dibley show comes to an end, it often does so with a joke. In fact, that is something that we all look forward to. The vicar tends to tell a joke to Alice and they may not be the funniest joke [More]
When we want to protest something and see some positive change, there are many ways to do so. Some of us will do something drastic or perhaps we may write a letter to show our dissatisfaction. At other times, however, we might consider having a petition signed and it is a great way to have the voices of many people heard. In Dibley, they are facing a serious crisis. They are about to lose their homes but they aren’t about to go quietly. They start to organise the signing of a petition, but things don’t go as well as they [More]
When most of us think about the Vicar of Dibley we automatically think about Dawn French. Although she certainly was an integral part of the show and it wouldn’t be the same without her, there were also many other talented individuals who played their part as well. Emma Chambers was one of those people, and her part as Alice Tinker certainly brought some life to the show. In this video clip, we see Alice driving Dawn mad, as she usually does. She is talking about the product, I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter, but she takes it a step further. [More]
When we are in a situation where things are not going our way, we may have a wide range of emotions. At times, it may make us want to retaliate, but most of us restrain ourselves because we understand the implications of doing so. That doesn’t mean, however, that we don’t wish we could do it. When they are having a water crises in Dibley, they certainly are up against a wall. Things just go downhill when they find out that they are not only having a problem with water, they are about to lose their homes when the village [More]
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]
If there is one thing that we appreciate about Dawn French, it is her ability to make something funny out of any situation. We have seen her do it countless times on her own, either in a standup routine or perhaps playing on the Vicar of Dibley. When she is paired with Jennifer Saunders, however, things tend to go to the next level. That is certainly what we are seeing in this video clip. Dawn French and Jennifer Saunders have played many roles over the years, including some parodies that were quite funny. In this clip, however, they are playing [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 it comes to comedy, it is difficult to top what the team of Dawn French and Jennifer Saunders are able to bring to us. It seems as if they have that special chemistry that just makes us laugh, even before they open their mouth. It is a gift that they are willing to share with us, and it comes through loud and clear in this musical parody. In this video, we get to see the team of French and Saunders taking on a popular musical group, Abba. The song that they choose, c’est la vie, is perhaps one of [More]
We have seen Dawn French play many different parts in the past and typically, she plays along with other comedians and actors quite brilliantly. In this clip, she is playing along with others as well but it isn’t comedians, nor is it actors, it is horses. It seems as if Dawn is out on an equestrian outing but even though she is ready to go, that doesn’t necessarily mean the horses are ready to go. Dawn is always ready to make the best out of everything that comes her way, and that includes these horses as well. In fact, she [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]
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]
They often say that time flies, but until you look back at what has taken place and how long ago it took place, the reality of it doesn’t quite sink in. As an example, it has been over 20 years since the Vicar of Dibley was first seen on the telly. We got our first taste of it through a trailer that introduced us to the show, and it appeared on 30th October, 1994. When you watch the trailer, you will see some of the scenes from the first episode that you may have forgotten. They are just as funny [More]
Each person is different and those differences may show up in many ways. We often see it in action when we are around others and sometimes it doesn’t have the most attractive results. That is especially true when money is concerned because it tends to bring out the worst in some people. Dibley is having a crisis. They are all losing their homes because of plans for a new reservoir but the vicar is planning on fighting those plans tooth and nail. The same can’t be said for David, who is thrilled that his property is going to fetch a [More]
If there is one thing that most of us have in common, is the fact that we love music. It tends to be a part of our lives from the time that we were very young and even when we get older, we tend to enjoy it and allow it to shape us in many ways. There are also differences between generations, however, and it may sometimes end up being a rather amusing situation. In this video clip, Alice turned on the radio and it is newer music, at least as far as the vicar is concerned. She talked about [More]
Most of us would agree that the first impression is certainly important, and it is one that we try hard to make a good one. The Vicar was also trying to make a good impression, but when she showed up in a rainstorm, things didn’t quite go as well as they could. In fact, they went hilariously wrong and it was a great way to start the series. One of the biggest problems was that nobody was expecting the Vicar to be a woman, but there she was, as big as life. Of course, in true Dawn French fashion, she [More]
There are many things in our life that we might consider personal, especially now that we have entered the electronic age. Even before there were multiple mobile phones and everybody seemed to have their own personal computer that they carried around with them, there were also privacy issues that we all appreciated. One of those was then and still is the phone. When the phone rings at the vicar’s house, Alice is the first one to jump up and run over to get it. It sometimes can get on the vicar’s nerves, however, because she would like to answer her [More]
If there is one thing that most of us truly appreciate, it’s a good joke. At times, it doesn’t even need to be the funniest thing that we have ever heard, it just needs to be told in the right way and it needs to come across at the right time. When it does, it can really perk us up and put a smile on our face. Unfortunately, there are going to be times when we try to tell a joke and it doesn’t necessarily land properly. That is a problem that the vicar often has, because her audience is [More]
It is difficult to name all of the things that are great about the Vicar of Dibley. Not only does it have Dawn French on it, it gives us more opportunities to laugh than we can count. One of the funny parts that many of us looked forward to with each episode was the joke that Dawn would tell to Alice Tinker, who was played by Emma Chambers. In this clip, Dawn is telling a joke about an inflatable boy who went to an inflatable school. The joke isn’t long but it is one that is classic Dawn French. When [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’s a lot of formalities that takes place during a meeting and at times, we might not understand everything that goes along with it. That is also obviously the case when they get together on the Vicar of Dibley, and it looks like Jim might not quite be getting what is being said. They ask for an apology, and he provides one but he doesn’t quite get it right. Of course, Jim offers the apology in his own usual way, stuttering the word no several times before he finally gets to the point. As it turns out, he didn’t really [More]
When we have a shortage of water, it can certainly make things difficult. Not only do we have to put off necessary things, such as flushing the toilet or watering the plants, we can also be thirsty from a lack of water as well. It is a frustrating problem that we would rather live without. When Dibley is experiencing a water shortage, they are facing some difficult decisions. The vicar seems to be handling things well but when she sees Alice watering the plants, she gets upset. That is, of course, until she finds out that she is actually watering [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]
It doesn’t matter who we are, we are going to be passionate about something. Sometimes, it makes us do things that we wouldn’t usually do, especially when we aren’t getting our way. Some people take it to the extreme but others go through normal channels to let their voice be heard. On the Vicar of Dibley, they are also passionate, and that is especially true when someone tries to take away their town. They had a petition signed (with the funniest results) but it seems as if the vicar needs to take things to the next level. She does so [More]
When we work with people on a day in, day out basis we sometimes may feel that we know them, but we don’t often know what goes on under the surface. That is also the case on the Vicar of Dibley, and there were a lot of things that were learned when they had a talent show. It seemed as if everyone was getting involved, including Jim, but he gave a little bit more than anyone was expecting. Jim stood in front of everyone and did his best Full Monty, dancing in a tiny bikini and eventually, tearing the bikini [More]
