Dawn French videos
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]
Have you ever had one of those moments when it seems like you are doing the perfect thing but it turns out to be something that is strangely inappropriate? That is what happened on this episode of the Vicar of Dibley. The Vicar was about to appear on a radio show and Frank pickle decided he would suggest a song, although his choice of songs did not sit well with David Horton. The song that he suggested was Shaddap You Face, and even sang a few lines of in order to demonstrate his desire to hear it played on the [More]
We may, at times, find ourselves in a situation where we need to pull together and come up with a solution to a rather difficult problem. The problem may vary from one situation to another but the fact that people pull together and sometimes are successful in trying continues to keep us going. A problem is certainly occurred on the Vicar of Dibley, as a big storm came through the area on the previous night and broke the stained-glass window in the church. The unfortunate problem was, they discovered it was going to cost £11,000 to repair the window, which [More]
When we are in our normal surroundings, we may pay attention to what is taking place around us and what is in the room but once it is removed, we suddenly realise that we actually didn’t know what we were looking at in the first place. We tend to take things for granted and that can lead to some difficulties, especially when it comes to our ability to recollect what was there. The same thing is also happening on the Vicar of Dibley, and after the big storm broke the stained-glass window, they realised that it needed to be repaired. [More]
Have you ever walked in on the middle of a conversation and as it develops, you realise that you have absolutely no idea what is being discussed? This happens to many of us and it often leads to problems, regardless of whether they are large or small. It seems as if it is also a difficulty on the vicar of Dibley. The scene opens with Jim talking to the committee about some unwelcome visitors that had come over into a field. It seems as if a confrontation ensued and after some discussion between the two parties, they decided that they [More]
We often remember some of the biggest events in our life, and it is not unusual for those events to be storms. In fact, they sometimes act as a touchstone and we often refer to them by names that we have given them along the way. In the case of large storms, they may even have a name, which is the case with hurricanes. Even if it is just a localized storm, it tends to be a noteworthy event. In this clip, we see Jim and Owen discussing a storm that happened the previous night. They start by comparing it [More]
There are many different ways to raise money but one of the popular ways is to hold a small lottery. Although people are only putting in a few dollars each, it can really add up at the end of the day. The committee in Dibley decided to do the same thing when the stained-glass window was broken during a storm. I don’t think the vicar exactly expected things to turn out quite like this. Owen appears to be in charge of the lottery and it looks as if he is going house to house with Hugo, asking people if they [More]
There is an old saying that life is full of disappointments, and obviously those disappointments can also happen in Dibley. Fortunately, we are often not directly involved with them and we get to watch them with Dawn French taking the lead. That is what makes things so funny and at times, it really helps the show to have a character that makes us love so much. In this clip, something rather interesting has happened, it seems as if Hugo has gotten a kiss from Kylie Minogue. When they had a fair in Dibley, they were expecting Elton John to show [More]
Many of us can remember going to a fair when we were young children and we may still continue to have the opportunity to go to them now that we are adults. They take place in many areas across the country, from small towns to larger metropolitan areas and they often offer a lot to those who visit. For many of us, it is one of the highlights of our year. On the Vicar of Dibley, they are also preparing for an event that is going to take place and they are hosting it. They also feel as if Elton [More]
When we are planning for a big event, there is typically a lot to do. We need to make sure that everything is prepared so that anyone who shows up for the event is going to enjoy it to the greatest extent possible. It looks as if the vicar and everyone else is also preparing, because they think that Elton John is coming to Dibley. As they are getting ready, painting some signs, there are a lot of things that take place in the background. This is a hilarious scene that just keeps getting funnier, each time you watch it. [More]
There’s a lot of formalities that takes place during a meeting and at times, we might not understand everything that goes along with it. That is also obviously the case when they get together on the Vicar of Dibley, and it looks like Jim might not quite be getting what is being said. They ask for an apology, and he provides one but he doesn’t quite get it right. Of course, Jim offers the apology in his own usual way, stuttering the word no several times before he finally gets to the point. As it turns out, he didn’t really [More]
When we look back at the Vicar of Dibley, we recognise that there are many funny moments to remember. More than likely, we spent a lot of time laughing at those moments back then and even today, it has the ability to make us laugh again. That is what makes these clips so hilariously funny, and I could watch them over and over again. In this clip, they are all talking in the back about a lady Godiva play that was held several years prior to this date. When the Vicar found out that lady Godiva had actually showed up [More]
Many of us have experienced the fear of standing on a stage in front of an audience. In fact, it is one of the most common fears that people face. In this video, we get the opportunity to see the Vicar in a similar situation, and she is giving her first sermon. Although she was nervous before ti started she ended up doing a fantastic job. When she got down and went into the back, she was greeted by the others who were waiting for her. One by one, they gave her compliments on what she did and even Jim [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]
Have you ever had a brilliant idea but it seems as if nobody is on board with it? We may even talk people into working along with us, but when it comes time to put everything together, our help suddenly disappears. The Vicar is experiencing something similar in this clip, and it has the most hilarious results. When the Vicar decided to start a book club, she didn’t want anything extraordinary, she just wanted everyone to read a book and that they would discuss it together. When they actually got together at the house, however, she found out that nobody [More]
They often say that time flies, but until you look back at what has taken place and how long ago it took place, the reality of it doesn’t quite sink in. As an example, it has been over 20 years since the Vicar of Dibley was first seen on the telly. We got our first taste of it through a trailer that introduced us to the show, and it appeared on 30th October, 1994. When you watch the trailer, you will see some of the scenes from the first episode that you may have forgotten. They are just as funny [More]
When we work with people on a day in, day out basis we sometimes may feel that we know them, but we don’t often know what goes on under the surface. That is also the case on the Vicar of Dibley, and there were a lot of things that were learned when they had a talent show. It seemed as if everyone was getting involved, including Jim, but he gave a little bit more than anyone was expecting. Jim stood in front of everyone and did his best Full Monty, dancing in a tiny bikini and eventually, tearing the bikini [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]
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]
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 [More]
Most people think about Dawn French and automatically, they picture her doing a standup routine with Jennifer Saunders or perhaps playing as the vicar of Dibley. Although those certainly are notable roles that she has played in the past, they are not the only choices that she has made in her life. The fact of the matter is, she is quite accomplished, not only as an actress and a comedian but also as a writer. Many fans of Dawn French do not realise that she wrote a book but back in 2009, she published the Dear Fatty book and it [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 look back over the years, there have certainly been many funny moments on the Vicar of Dibley. Dawn French never fails to please and she always has the ability to make us laugh. Of course, sometimes it helps to turn back the dial and to look at the beginning so that we can appreciate where we have come from. In this video, we get to take a look at the arrival of Dawn, when she first appeared on the Vicar of Dibley. She is on the pulpit, giving her first speech and it just seems as if things [More]
You never quite know what you’re going to turn up when you are out looking for something unusual, and at times, a real gem may be found. That is why many of us love garage sales and auctions, because we had the opportunity to find something that may have been lost for years. As they say, one man’s trash is another man’s treasure, and somebody certainly found a treasure in this video clip. A man had been booked by the local Labour Party to show a film at a local venue, but the projector broke down that evening and he [More]
