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]
Many of us would love to have the opportunity to see Dawn French perform in person. She has given us many opportunities to do so in the past, regardless of whether it was some type of standup comedy or if she was making another type of public appearance. Of course, the majority of the work that she did was behind-the-scenes but they are just as funny as being able to see her in person. This scene is from the Vicar of Dibley and Dawn has found herself in a rather unusual situation. She visits the trailer of Johnny Depp but [More]
There are many different things that take place on the wedding day that could be considered memorable. You have the walk down the wedding aisle, the toast by the best man and sometimes, you may even have some entertainment on the side. That is where Jim and Owen come in. In order to commemorate the Vicar’s wedding in the best way they know how, they have planned a wedding song. As they sit and play it for the vicar, you can see that it wasn’t quite what she had in mind. In their typical style, however, they managed to come [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]
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]
Something that many of us have is a “bucket list” and we may try to fill everything on the list while we are still alive. For some of us, it may be so fairly normal items that are easily accomplished but for others, it could include some rather unusual items. When it comes to these Irish nuns, they have the opportunity to see the Pope in person and it is obvious that they are able to cross off one of the items on their bucket list as well. When it comes to Dawn French, many of us recognise that she [More]
When it comes to funny people, there is sure to be some who come to your mind before others. Dawn French is one of those people and it doesn’t matter what she is doing, she is going to make you laugh. We’ve seen her working with Jennifer Saunders on stand up comedy and on various funny television shows, such as the Vicar of Dibley. Through it all, she never fails to put a smile on our face. In this clip, we get to see Dawn French playing a rather unusual role. She is playing Vicky Pollard’s mum and from the [More]
It looks like Dawn French and Jennifer Saunders are at it again and this time, they are doing a parody on physical perfection. Although Dawn tries her best to convince Jennifer that she is perfect in every way, I don’t really think the Jennifer is buying it! You will laugh the whole way through this video and chuckle about it for the rest of the day. Physical perfection is in the eye of the beholder and it is something that also differs from one part of the world to another. This parity is not only hilarious, it is actually a [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]
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]
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]
There are many events that take place on the wedding day that are greatly anticipated. One of those events is a speech that is given by the best man, and it seems as if Jim may just be up for that occasion. Of course, he goes beyond just giving a regular speech and composes a wedding song that is sure to touch everyone who is in attendance. Just how it touches them, however, is another story. As Jim stands in front of the bride and groom, he sings a song with accompaniment behind him in the form of a choir. [More]
It doesn’t matter who we are, we are sure to have a favourite celebrity that we would love to meet. For example, many men have said they would rather have lunch with Mel Gibson than a beautiful woman, and it is easy to see why. When a person reaches a certain status, they become desirable and interesting to meet. That was what the committee was discussing and they really hit a chord with the vicar. It seems that a production company wanted to film in Dibley and they were bringing Johnny Depp in for the filming. The vicar went wild [More]
There are a number of reasons to enjoy the colder months of the year but for many of us, it is the Christmas season that really keeps us from going stir crazy. We get the chance to get together with family and friends to enjoy a meal or some company. Through it all, we have our music and when you see what is taking place in this video, you will see that Dawn French has hers as well. As Dawn is sitting in front of a big fireplace, she is entertaining someone and it just seems as if she is [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]
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]
We have seen Dawn French in so many different roles through the years that it is difficult to know where to start. It certainly does make it difficult to choose one that is our favourite but for many, it does fall on the Vicar of Dibley. It is the show that introduced many of us to this funny lady and, while it was on the air, we never missed one of the shows. Of course, when we were watching the Vicar of Dibley, we saw the cut version that was made for the telly. What we didn’t see was what [More]
It looks like Dawn French is at it again and in this classic clip from a French and Saunders skit she is imagining that she is trying out for a replacement in the Eurythmics. In classic Dawn French style, she plays the part masterfully and you will be laughing out loud from the beginning to the end. In this clip, Dawn French is singing in the kitchen but most people limit their singing to the shower. This is by accident. The shower typically provides the acoustics that are necessary so that your voice sounds much better. It makes even an [More]
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 it comes to people who are famous, we often feel as if the world is quite different for them. We get to see them on the stage or perhaps on the telly and it seems as if they just go from one impressive event to another and it really isn’t a big deal for them. The fact is, however, even celebrities have their favourites, and you get to see it come to life in this clip. Dawn French was being interviewed on the Parkinson’s show a number of years ago along with her comedic partner, Jennifer Saunders. With as [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]
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]
The unique comedic styles of French and Saunders come together for this skit that pokes fun at Shakespeare’s Sister. Regardless of whether you have seen the group or not, you will find this parody to be extremely funny and will be chuckling from the beginning to the end. Shakespeare’s sister was the brainchild of Siobhan Fahey, a British singer and songwriter who performed this unique act in 1988. Originally, Shakespeare’s Sister was only Fahey on her own but as of 1989, Marcella Detroit, an American musician joined the act.
