French & Saunders | Dawn French videos
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]

It is a gift that they are willing to share with us, and it comes through loud and clear in this musical parody.

Although there may be many people of note that have touched our lives over the years, many of us would have to admit that Dawn French is near the top of the list. She is known for her comedy, both alone and with Jennifer Saunders, but when the two of them are together, it is absolutely brilliant. They make us laugh, and that is a fantastic gift. As individuals, we recognise what Dawn French brings to us but it was also recognised by some other people as well. The British Academy of Film and Television Arts has been providing awards [More]
You never quite know what you’re going to turn up when you are out looking for something unusual, and at times, a real gem may be found. That is why many of us love garage sales and auctions, because we had the opportunity to find something that may have been lost for years. As they say, one man’s trash is another man’s treasure, and somebody certainly found a treasure in this video clip. A man had been booked by the local Labour Party to show a film at a local venue, but the projector broke down that evening and he [More]
If you were to stop and think about it, how many different skits could you come up with that came from Dawn French and Jennifer Saunders? Anytime they are together, they seem to come up with something brilliant and it makes us laugh. Of course, we have probably forgotten more French and Saunders than what we remember, which is what makes this video so fantastic.

Seeing Dawn French play any part is almost a guaranteed laugh. Over the course of many years, we have seen her playing on television sitcoms, such as the vicar of Dibley and we have enjoyed her standup routines as well. Perhaps some of our favourite Dawn French moments, however, came when she teamed up with Jennifer Saunders because you never knew what was coming next. In this video clip, they are taking on a popular song from the musical, Chess, “I Know Him so Well.” Performed by Elaine Paige and Barbara Dickinson, it is a song that you probably remember [More]

Have you ever just been standing there minding your own business when suddenly, you see someone who has something that you want? It doesn’t matter if it is something that is large or small, it seems to trigger something in us that we just can’t control. It is a feeling of envy, but it is something that many of us hide from others, even if we are experiencing it. In this brilliant sketch by Dawn French and Jennifer Saunders, we see envy taking place in the worst way ever. Jennifer is enjoying a delicious treat and Dawn can’t help but [More]

This French and Saunders scene is from an Easter show and they are setting up for a dinner party. The problem is, nobody is there except the two of them so Dawn is [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]

There are certain things that many of us enjoy in life, and many of those revolve around the dinner table.

It looks as if Dawn French and Jennifer Saunders have been invited to a special luncheon, and Dawn is the guest speaker! I don’t know about you, but anytime she has the opportunity to speak, I try to be there to listen. This was no different but from the very moment she opened her mouth, things didn’t seem to go well for her. I don’t know if it was the fact that she couldn’t stop belching or if it was her singsong way of delivering the speech, it certainly did have me in stitches. I’ll be looking for more out [More]
When talented individuals get the opportunity to take their talents and go on tour, it can really be a lot of fun for them.

One of their memorable tours is the “Still Alive Tour” and when you see any part of it, [More]
Have you ever watched a film that affected you so deeply that you just couldn’t get it out of your mind? There have been quite a few films like that over the years, and they are often the topic of discussion for years after they were playing at the theater. One of those films is Misery, and although it was released way back in 1990, it still has the ability to thrill and captivate the audience. Although most of us think about suspense when we think about Misery, you might just look at it from a different perspective when you [More]
French and Saunders can take on anyone in style but when they set their sights on Madonna, you will laugh until you cry.

As they go from one scene to the next, you will find that you are laughing so hard you need to pause it to catch your breath. Although the original documentary met with some criticism, it was a fantastic success. In fact, it became the highest grossing documentary, earning over $29 million. Although the documentary may be interesting, we find [More]
Many of us have become quite familiar with Dawn French and Jennifer Saunders and we may see them in a variety of comical situations. Perhaps we are most familiar with seeing them together on stage and doing some type of standup routine or skit. They have also played on television shows together and they even came up with the concept for some other popular shows, even though they weren’t starring on them regularly. Sometimes, we may be able to spot French and Saunders in a rather unique role, but we need to know where to look and how to find [More]
Everybody knows Madonna, including Dawn French and Jennifer Saunders, who decided to take a stab at her in this parody. From the time that Madonna (Saunders) is passing gas in the exercise room until she steps out on stage, you will be laughing out loud until you cry. Madonna is best known for her singing and unusual music videos but she also is an actress that has started over 20 films. Her grandparents came from Italy but she was born in Bay City, Michigan. Although she has reached the level of superstardom, she is not out of the reach of [More]
In 1998, the comedy team of Dawn French and Jennifer Saunders met up with the Spice Girls.

That single, Wannabe, managed to reach the number one position in 37 countries. Even their first album, Spice, sold 30 million+ copies around the world. They team [More]

America’s next top model had its premiere in 2003 and continues to be shown today. With hundreds of episodes, there certainly is plenty of material available for this French [More]
Certainly, Dawn French and Jennifer Saunders are able to take on any musician and to make us laugh about it. When they take on Sophie Ellis Bextor, however, they have a little extra material to work with. Watching this video will send you into a downward spiral of laughter that is difficult to control. Sophie Ellis Bextor is perhaps best known as a singer and songwriter but she also works as a model and occasionally works as a DJ. She first got her start in music playing with an indie rock band but since that time, she has gone solo [More]
