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]
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 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]
It doesn’t matter who we are, we all can appreciate when we have a special event in our lives. At times, it might be a wedding or maybe the birth of a child but something we all can remember is our honeymoon. It was something that was a once in a lifetime event. For Alice and Hugo, the honeymoon was something that had waited for a very long time. When they got home, they shared their pictures with the vicar, including the one where they carried the bag through customs for another person. In the end, Hugo ended up in [More]
When we have a shortage of water, it can certainly make things difficult. Not only do we have to put off necessary things, such as flushing the toilet or watering the plants, we can also be thirsty from a lack of water as well. It is a frustrating problem that we would rather live without. When Dibley is experiencing a water shortage, they are facing some difficult decisions. The vicar seems to be handling things well but when she sees Alice watering the plants, she gets upset. That is, of course, until she finds out that she is actually watering [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]
Many of us enjoy going to the films, especially when something popular is out. It may be popular for a number of different reasons, however, and not every popular film is going to be to everyone’s liking. Sometimes, it is the cast that really makes the film, and it certainly does help if you have an appreciation for those who are starring in it. Sometimes, however, it is not only the cast, it is the storyline as well. Back in 2008, a rather unusual film was released and it did very well at the theater. It was a musical, which [More]
We have often seen Dawn French and her partner, Jennifer Saunders in some rather unusual situations. Through it all, however, they give us the opportunity to laugh and we love them for it. Sometimes, they may be doing a parody on a famous singer and at other times, they may just be playing some random strangers sitting at a bus stop. In this skit, they are the latter and it is brilliant. I think all of us who have ever been at a bus stop realise just how uncomfortable it can be. I’m not really talking about the seats, which [More]
If there is one thing that all of us have in life, it is dreams. That is something that seems to be unique among humans, the ability to dream and to set our sights on something grander. Perhaps you have done so yourself you watched a friend as they reached for the stars, so to speak. In this clip, we get to watch Alice as she reaches for a goal that might seem to be quite unobtainable. She has decided that enough is enough and she wants the opportunity to impress her future father in law. That is why she [More]
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 most of us think about the team of Dawn French and Jennifer Saunders, our minds automatically think about their comedy and how they make us laugh. It certainly is true that they have that ability, and they seem to play off of each other brilliantly in anything that they do together. In fact, they are quite possibly the best known female comedy team of all time. That being said, there are also going to be times when they take things down a level and get a little serious. That is what you are going to see in this video, [More]
There are many things in our life that we might consider personal, especially now that we have entered the electronic age. Even before there were multiple mobile phones and everybody seemed to have their own personal computer that they carried around with them, there were also privacy issues that we all appreciated. One of those was then and still is the phone. When the phone rings at the vicar’s house, Alice is the first one to jump up and run over to get it. It sometimes can get on the vicar’s nerves, however, because she would like to answer her [More]
Most of us would agree that the first impression is certainly important, and it is one that we try hard to make a good one. The Vicar was also trying to make a good impression, but when she showed up in a rainstorm, things didn’t quite go as well as they could. In fact, they went hilariously wrong and it was a great way to start the series. One of the biggest problems was that nobody was expecting the Vicar to be a woman, but there she was, as big as life. Of course, in true Dawn French fashion, she [More]
Over the years, Dawn French has certainly made us smile on the Vicar of Dibley. It doesn’t matter what she is doing, it seems as if it is going to turn out brilliant. We’ve seen her in funny scenes and serious scenes but we might never see her in a funnier scene than this one. It’s just what you need to put a smile on your face. In this clip, it seems that a move might just be in order. Dawn is certainly not for it and she even gives an impassioned plea to stay. That doesn’t mean that everyone [More]
Many of us like to reminisce over things from our childhood. As we get older and continue to bring those memories up in our mind, they may become distorted to a certain extent. It’s a scientifically proven fact that it happens, but it happens more often with some people. It looks as if Alice is one of those individuals. As the antique roadshow is getting ready to visit Dibley, everybody is getting something together so that they can have it evaluated and appraised. For Alice, it is a priceless item, a tiny Smurf that was given to her by her [More]
I don’t know about you, but I was quite sad to see the Vicar of Dibley go off the air. It was just one of those shows that seemed to be able to pick up my spirits and make me laugh, regardless of what was going on that particular day. After all, Dawn French is absolutely brilliant and it seems as if they were able to make any situation seem hilariously funny. Although the Vicar of Dibley is no longer being made as a sitcom, they do make an appearance from time to time. In this video clip, you get [More]
When we become parents, our lives are going to change almost from the first day. It seems as if everything revolves around the baby, especially when it comes to sleeping. They often dictate when we sleep at night and during the day, they can even dictate how we behave when they are napping. It appears as if Alice and Hugo and running into a similar situation. The baby is taking a nap but they are expecting company so they come up with a most brilliant plan. They decide to talk by writing everything out and they expect their guests to [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.
We often celebrate anniversaries, especially when it is the anniversary of something great. This is often done in birthdays or perhaps wedding anniversaries but for the Vicar, it is her 10th anniversary in Dibley. When she reveals that fact to the committee, the discussion that ensues is rather hilarious. It starts off with a conversation about how she could have done anything, but she managed to waste 10 years of her life with the idiots in the area. Then they talk about some of the things that happened in the past, but Jim has some rather unusual ideas of what [More]
Before the wedding day takes place, we often get together with family and friends to enjoy some good times and to celebrate the big day before it happens. In many cases, a party will be thrown in your honour and you might just have a surprise or two when you get there. The members of the town came together to have a party for the Vicar prior to her walk down the aisle as well. It started out with a fun game of “this is your life” and it pretty much went downhill from there. In this clip, you see [More]
When most of us are together for a meeting, we try to be as formal as possible but that doesn’t necessarily mean that we are going to follow all of the rules of parliamentary procedure. As a matter of fact, most of us don’t even know those rules and even if we were to try, it is unlikely that we would stick with them stringently. That is the case, however, when the committee meets for a meeting in Dibley. That is especially true because David Horton is in charge of the meeting, and he wants everything to be run just [More]
When we have a special event coming up, we want to make sure that everything is just right. Sometimes, we will want to do something special in order to commemorate the occasion, and that is what David is trying to do in this clip. The vicar is about to have her 10 year anniversary in Dibley and it is a very special occasion. In order to make sure that it is noticed properly, David goes over to the vicarage and talks to her about the type of gift she should get. It is quite a touching gesture. The only problem [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]
What was the biggest day in your life? Perhaps it was the day you graduated from college or maybe the birth of your first child. For many people, it is the day they get married, because they are doing something that is only to happen once in their life. They want everything to be perfect and they plan things out to the letter. One of the moments that really defines a wedding is when the bride is escorted down the aisle. In this clip, we get to see Alice have her special moment, and she is beautiful when she comes [More]
