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 to those who are outstanding in their craft, and the team of French and Saunders received their highest honour in 2009, the BAFTA Fellowship. You can watch them receiving the honour in this video.
As a recipient of the Fellowship award, French and Saunders join other talented individuals, such as Alfred Hitchcock, Charlie Chaplin and Laurence Olivier. We certainly do appreciate the gift that they have and it not only shows in their standup comedy, you can even see it coming through loud and clear in their acceptance speech.
