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]
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]
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]
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]
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]
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]
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]
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]
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]
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]
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]
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]
If there is one thing that all of us enjoy doing, it’s having a good laugh. It’s a great way to get your day started and if you are heading home from a long day at work, it can give you that little shot in the arm to keep going. There are many ways to get in your daily chuckle but the three people in this sketch are the top way to do it. When you think about comedy, it is likely that there are certain people who come to your mind. Three of the biggest names in comedy have [More]
Certainly, Dawn French and Jennifer Saunders are able to take on any musician and to make us laugh about it. When they take on Sophie Ellis Bextor, however, they have a little extra material to work with. Watching this video will send you into a downward spiral of laughter that is difficult to control. Sophie Ellis Bextor is perhaps best known as a singer and songwriter but she also works as a model and occasionally works as a DJ. She first got her start in music playing with an indie rock band but since that time, she has gone solo [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]
French & Saunders sing “I Should Be So Lucky” and eat hamburgers, for their voice.
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 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]
Did you ever notice how there are certain people who just seem to be able to make you laugh from the moment you see them? Perhaps it is a friend of yours that has been doing it for years or maybe it is someone in your family. For most of us, however, it comes in the form of a professional comedian and Dawn French certainly is at the top of her class. You will have no doubt about that fact once you see this clip. The Vicar of Dibley is perhaps one of the more classic shows that Dawn French [More]
As the wedding day is approaching, things can get quite uptight and it is difficult to keep on top of it all. Sometimes, it can even be quite frustrating and we may end up lashing out at those that we care for the most. It seems as if the vicar may just be in the position at this point in her life. As the vicar has a talk with her fiancé, she is concerned over the possibility that he is going to constantly say no to her after they are married. She even gets a rather good zinger in, but [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]
