Dawn French & Jennifer Saunders play 2 nice, little, old ladies on a tour of the new Tate Modern Museum. They wander around either bewildered or confused through ostentatious modern art until they finally find the exhibit they were searching for… the cafe. From the episode ‘Easter Special 2002’ of the BBC show French & Saunders.
When we think of Dawn French, most of us think about her abilities as a comedienne. It doesn’t matter if she is playing a part on the telly, such as the Vicar of Dibley or if she is doing a standup routine with Jennifer Saunders, we almost start laughing before we can watch the show. In this video, however, you get to see a different side of Dawn French and it is one that just makes you love her even more. Dawn French was installed formally at the new chancellor of Falmouth University. You get to see the ceremony, which [More]
When most of us think about Dawn French, we are likely to first think about her in a role, such as what she played in the Vicar of Dibley. We might also think about some of the comedy she has done over the years, and she certainly has done her fair share of standup as well. For those of us who really know Dawn French, however, we think about the partnerships she has forged, especially with Jennifer Saunders. Over the years, French and Saunders have put together some very funny routines. In most cases, they are poking fun at someone, [More]
Dawn French has earned the reputation of being the funniest person who has ever graced our lives with comedy. When we see her doing anything on TV or online, it seems that we start laughing almost before she begins speaking. It’s a wonderful gift that she shares with others and one that we truly appreciate. Of course, it isn’t only the comedy of Dawn French that we love, it is everything about her that just seems to make us smile from within. That is why we have put together these quotes for you, to help celebrate the person who is [More]
The cast members who were on the Vicar of Dibley from one week to the next certainly have the ability to make us laugh. It seems as if the chemistry that went between them was so in tune that they just were able to play off of each other perfectly, regardless of the scene. Of course, most of us tend to think about Dawn French or Emma Chambers when it comes to the Vicar of Dibley but from time to time, they had some special guest stars on the show as well. This episode is no different, as Sting was [More]
Have you ever done anything in life that you later regret? Of course, all of us have and, at times, we may even look back on those moments years later and still shudder over what we did. Perhaps that is why we appreciate this clip from the Vicar of Dibley so much, because the Vicar is living out the consequences of one of those regretful moments. It all started when the Vicar agreed to give Owen a kiss, but she wasn’t expecting it to have this kind of an effect on him. He stopped by her house to return her [More]
There are many special moments that we may enjoy life. Some of those that we might appreciate more than others include the day that we get married and, of course, the day that we have any children. Another day that may be special at the time and something that we chill cherish down to this day is the date that we realise we are pregnant. It is on that day that we recognise we are starting on a long-term project and one that we look forward to doing. Alice came over to visit the vicar and the more she kept [More]
You never quite know what is going to happen when the committee gets together in Dibley. It seems as if they always discuss the most unusual things, and this particular day is no different. In fact, they are discussing something quite nice, as it is about supporting those who are poor and don’t have enough to eat. The Vicar has a suggestion that they should put on a live aid show, and Frank is more than happy to stand in as Freddie Mercury. Everybody is quick to point out, however, that he doesn’t look anything like Mercury. He begs to [More]
We have seen Dawn French plan in many different roles over the years, doing parodies of everything from Madonna to car park attendants. It seems as if there isn’t anything that she does that isn’t funny, and this new bit is no exception. Rather than being in front of the camera, however, she is behind the scenes in a brilliant new advert for an ice cream advert. This advert takes advantage of Dawn’s roots and has her doing a voice over for a new ‘School of Cornish’ video series, which will ultimately introduce some delicious ice cream to the viewers. [More]
Over the years, we have seen Dawn French play a number of different fascinating roles with Jennifer Saunders and it seems as if they always have the ability to make us laugh. Perhaps they do a parody on Madonna or they may do a standup comedy routine in front of a live audience. In any case, they play off of each other brilliantly and we always leave feeling good. This particular skit is no different. When Dawn French shows up at the home of Jennifer Saunders, she has no idea what she is about to get into. When she goes [More]
Did you ever notice how there are certain people who just seem to be able to make you laugh from the moment you see them? Perhaps it is a friend of yours that has been doing it for years or maybe it is someone in your family. For most of us, however, it comes in the form of a professional comedian and Dawn French certainly is at the top of her class. You will have no doubt about that fact once you see this clip. The Vicar of Dibley is perhaps one of the more classic shows that Dawn French [More]
Dawn French is able to play so many different roles brilliantly that it’s sometimes difficult to know who she will be today. Of course, it is always a lot of fun to find out and in this video, you will end up laughing until you cry. After all, it’s Dawn French playing Catherine Zeta Jones, who is looking down her nose to deliver this special message. Catherine Zeta Jones is an actress who was born in September, 1969 in Wales. Her first real break came from playing on The Darling Buds of May, a Yorkshire television comedy. She is even [More]
Is there anything that Dawn French and Jennifer Saunders do that isn’t funny? This video shows them in a rather common situation, having some computer troubles. In fact, most of us have found ourselves in this situation at some time in the past. When we watch what they do to try and fix the computer, it is not only going to make us laugh at them, we will laugh at ourselves as well. Computers certainly are convenient but there are many times when they cause us frustrations. This video shows that the frustration is often misapplied, but it is done [More]
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]
It is difficult to count all of the hours that I have spent watching Dawn French over the years. When you just add up the Vicar of Dibley alone, it really amounts to more than I can possibly imagine. That isn’t to mention all of the times that I have seen her performing standup comedy or alongside Jennifer Saunders for a brilliant parody. This video, however, is something I am happy to have added to my list. Dawn French has the ability to transform herself into almost any personality that you can possibly imagine. We have seen her do personalities [More]
When we are facing a difficult situation, we often try to prepare ourselves to handle it in advance. Some of us may go so far as to practice in front of a mirror, but it is usually not going to work out quite as we had planned. After all, there are so many variables in any situation, it can be difficult to adjust. It appears as if the Vicar is in such a situation. She was recently proposed to by Owen, and it totally took her by surprise. Of course, she doesn’t want to marry him so she tries to [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]
You never quite know what is going to happen in Dibley and it seems as if they are always in the middle of something. That is no different in this particular clip, because antique roadshow has come to town. It is one of their favourite shows, and everybody turns out in force to make sure that they feel welcome and that they have plenty of things to appraise. David ends up bringing out some of his better paintings, but he finds out they are not really worth what he thinks they are worth. In fact, he is out quite a [More]
French & Saunders parody of the movie The Piano.
We have seen French and Saunders poke fun at many different actresses but it seems as if not even Marlene Dietrich is immune to this type of comedic activity. In this video, French and Saunders play the parts so perfectly that it will have you laughing out loud and wanting more! Marlene Dietrich got her start in the 1920s acting in silent movies in Berlin. She continued to develop her acting career as the silver screen changed, eventually playing in Hollywood roles, such as Desire and Shanghai Express. Although she passed away in 1992, this parody helps to bring her [More]
