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 most of us think about Dawn French playing the role as the Vicar of Dibley, we probably think about her telling a joke or doing something funny. From time to time, however, there were scenes in which Dawn was not quite so chipper and this is one of those scenes. Although it isn’t one we may think about often, when you see it, it will bring the entire episode back to your mind. As Dawn is upset in this clip, she suddenly finds herself in the middle of what might be described as a flash mob. Everyone started singing [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]
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]
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]
Though the years, we have seen Dawn French playing in quite a few memorable roles. Some of them we watched on the telly, others were on the stage but through it all, she gave us the opportunity to laugh, sometimes until we cried. Out of all of her appearances, we perhaps enjoy the Vicar of Dibley more than them all. The show had a marvelous run, from 1994 until the final episode, in 2007. Needless to say, we all miss Dawn French playing the part of Geraldine Granger in the Vicar of Dibley. There has been some rumors that have [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]
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]
In 1998, the comedy team of Dawn French and Jennifer Saunders met up with the Spice Girls. In this clip from that skit, you will find that they play well with each other and you will be laughing from the time it starts. I especially appreciate the way that French and Saunders look in their crop tops! LOL The Spice Girls were an English pop group that released their debut single in 1996. That single, Wannabe, managed to reach the number one position in 37 countries. Even their first album, Spice, sold 30 million+ copies around the world. They team [More]
If you are a big fan of Dawn French, there is no doubt that you have seen her in some funny situations in the past. We watch her on the telly, on the stage and even in the films and she never ceases to amaze us with her ability to make us laugh. That is true when she is on her own but when you take the talent of Dawn French and put it together with Jennifer Saunders, you really have something that is remarkable. In this clip, which is perhaps one of the most classic we have seen, Dawn [More]
When you think about getting a nice, home bakes treat from an older friend, you likely look forward to the experience. Those treats are not only baked with love, they are quite delicious as well. Of course, not everyone is going to be able to make something scrumptious and at times, we may even try to avoid their cooking. When it comes to experimenting with food, there are those who do it well and others who don’t. Mrs Cropley is a good example of someone who liked to experiment with food and when she brings pancakes to the committee meeting, [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]
When we look back at our past, we often see things that we had perhaps forgotten. That is especially true when we are going through a box of old items that may have been stored away for quite some time. It’s often shocking when we find what was hiding in those boxes. It appears as if the Vicar is having one of those moments and Alice is there to share it with her. She brings down an old box and finds a Black Sabbath album inside. Of course, Alice wonders if it is a gospel group. They then see where [More]
French and Saunders can take on anyone in style but when they set their sights on Madonna, you will laugh until you cry. In this video, they are doing a parody on the 1991 documentary film, Madonna: Truth or Dare. As they go from one scene to the next, you will find that you are laughing so hard you need to pause it to catch your breath. Although the original documentary met with some criticism, it was a fantastic success. In fact, it became the highest grossing documentary, earning over $29 million. Although the documentary may be interesting, we find [More]
One of the most special events in any of our lives is going to be the day that we get married. It is not only the fact that we are joining together with our significant other, we also have a honeymoon to look forward to as well. Those are events that are never going to be repeated, and they are some of the most special we will experience in our life. When Alice Tinker gets married to Hugo, the two of them go on vacation and when they get back, they are anxious to tell the vicar about what took [More]
Everybody knows Madonna, including Dawn French and Jennifer Saunders, who decided to take a stab at her in this parody. From the time that Madonna (Saunders) is passing gas in the exercise room until she steps out on stage, you will be laughing out loud until you cry. Madonna is best known for her singing and unusual music videos but she also is an actress that has started over 20 films. Her grandparents came from Italy but she was born in Bay City, Michigan. Although she has reached the level of superstardom, she is not out of the reach of [More]
I don’t know about you, but I could never get tired of the comedy of Dawn French. 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. Of course, from time to time, there are things that make us smile more than others and the Vicar of Dibley is probably at the top of the list. This particular clip is one that you may or may not remember but it is something that is amazingly funny. It comes from [More]
There are many times in life when we might be facing an uncomfortable situation. Some of us may face it when we have to meet someone important and we aren’t quite sure how to react. That was the case when the Vicar was meeting a priest from another area, but something most unexpected happened. The vicar was busy trying to hold a conversation and act naturally. It was then that the doorbell rang and she got unexpected company. It was Alice Tinker and in typical fashion, she was doing something unexpected. Rather than just coming over for a visit, she [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]
Have you ever really been upset about something and felt as if you needed to take things to the next level? Of course, we have all felt that way at some time or another. Sometimes we feel so passionate about it that we write a letter, or more than likely, an email to voice our opinion. The town of Dibley is experiencing such a crisis when they don’t have enough water. When they hold a committee meeting, David lets them know he has written a letter to voice his dissatisfaction. The only problem is that the letter is very polite. [More]
There is something about casual conversation that just seems to fascinate us. It doesn’t matter if we are in the middle of the conversation or viewing it from the outside, it tends to move along quickly. There doesn’t even need to be an interesting topic, we just need to let the other person talk about what they like and it works out well. In Dibley, there are often conversations that are not only interesting, they are quite funny as well. That is especially true when the committee gets together. Typically, they banter quite well but in this case, they are [More]
There are many cases where reality is just as amusing as the comedy that is trying to poke fun at it. That may just be the case with this pair, which is perfectly and hilariously imitated by French and Saunders. In this clip, they take on the famous singers, Britney Spears and Amy Winehouse. You will not believe how funny it truly is! At times, Britney Spears and Amy Winehouse wrote their own material, as far as the ridiculous is concerned. It landed them on the front pages of many tabloids and in the case of this video clip, allowed [More]
