There are many talented people out there who sing and dance. Some of them are going to stand out on their own but others are going to find their way into a group, known as a chorus line. They are an important part of a Broadway musical and being a part of the show is something many of them strive for. There have even been Broadway musicals made on the subject, such as, A Chorus Line. In this clip, we see the comedy team of Dawn French and Jennifer Saunders poking fun at a Broadway musical and they are doing [More]
Dawn French and Jennifer Saunders do a parody of the movie “What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?”
Although French and Saunders play many different roles, one of my personal favorites is when they do a parody. In this video clip, they are doing an excellent job of poking fun at The Silence of the Lambs. It doesn’t matter if you have seen the movie or not, you will be amazed with what these two comedic geniuses are able to accomplish! The silence of the lambs was a dramatic crime film starring Jodie Foster. It was released in February 1991 and since that time, it has become iconic. Although the movie itself was not funny, this parity will [More]
If there is one thing that many of us recognise about Dawn French and Jennifer Saunders, it is the fact that they can transform themselves into almost anything that is necessary to play a role. At one moment, they may be poking fun at a celebrity, such as Cher or Madonna but before you know it, they are someone completely different. In this clip, they play a rather unexpected pair and it is quite funny to watch. In this clip, they play car park attendants, and you are going to be amazed with how they are able to transform into [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]

We have seen their comedy routines and we love their parodies but this time, they are touching something that is near and dear to many people’s hearts. In a 1999 special known as “The Phantom Millennium”, Dawn French and Jennifer Saunders take a trip to a galaxy far, far away and they do it in their own, unusual comedic style. You don’t need to be a Star Wars fan to appreciate the comedy that is in the skit. French and Saunders play off of each other perfectly and regardless of what they happen to be making fun of today, they [More]
When it comes to comedy, there are really many different ways that you could approach the subject. Some of us appreciate a good standup routine, having somebody up in front of us telling jokes or doing funny skits. Others may appreciate watching television or perhaps a film when the subject matter is funny. In any case, Dawn French bring something special to these different types of comedy, especially when she is teamed up with Jennifer Saunders. Sometimes, it is not only comedy that is funny but reality can be a type of comedy all to itself. When that is the [More]
As fans of Dawn French, we try to watch everything she plays in, regardless of how large or small. That is especially true of the Vicar of Dibley, which is perhaps what she is best known for. The show was fantastic and the only thing we didn’t like about it is that it eventually came to an end. I can’t tell you how many times I sat and laughed at what was going on in each episode. If you love the Vicar of Dibley, you may be wondering where it was actually filmed. Yes, the show itself was a sitcom [More]
Like most people, you probably enjoy going to the films. Personally, I don’t think there is a better way to kick back and relax after a difficult day. For the time the film is playing, all of our troubles and cares seem to disappear and it often leaves us feeling good at the end. Sometimes, we may even get a surprise when we see a film, and that is what happened in The Adventures of Pinocchio. If you have never seen The Adventures of Pinocchio before, it is well worth a watch. The story line is fantastic and you will [More]
French & Saunders sing “I Should Be So Lucky” and eat hamburgers, for their voice.
Have you ever had the responsibility to make something clear to individuals who were participating in a large event? Perhaps it had to do with directing them for parking purposes or it may have been getting them to walk in a certain area. In any case, you already recognise that it can be quite difficult and it has some rather unique challenges that go along with it. It appears as if Jim is having such a difficulty in this clip, and it is very funny to watch. Jim Trott is perhaps one of the funniest individuals on the Vicar of [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]
While they are relaxing at home on a December evening, French and Saunders decide that it would be fun to impersonate some other celebrities. They go back and forth with each other, and you are not going to believe some of the people that they come up with! From the beginning to the end, this classic clip will leave you in stitches and wanting more. There have been many famous celebrities who were able to impersonate others. Some are able to impersonate their physical looks while others impersonate their inflections and voice patterns. When you combine these, as Dawn French [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.

It seems that anything she does is going to be brilliant and if you don’t start laughing when she starts talking, you might want to have your ability to laugh checked.

This particular clip is one that you may or may not remember but it is something that is amazingly funny. It comes from [More]
Dawn French has played so many different roles over the years, it can sometimes be difficult to keep up. Perhaps we remember her best by her role in the vicar of Dibley or we may think about some of her standup routines, either on her own or along with Jennifer Saunders.

Dawn French is taking on the role of Harry Potter, and we couldn’t think of a better person to do it. From the beginning to the end, [More]
It is difficult to think about Dawn French doing anything and not have a big smile on our face.
