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]
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]
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]
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]
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.
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]
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]
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]
When was the last time you were in a very uncomfortable situation? Perhaps it was just a day or so ago or we may need to think back a while but in either case, it usually sticks out in our minds as being something most disturbing. It doesn’t even matter why it happened, just the fact that it did happen is enough. In this clip, we are looking in on one of those uncomfortable situations but the good news is, we aren’t directly involved. It happens to the Vicar during a committee meeting. David is absent, which is odd, but [More]
How often do you get frustrated over little things in life that just seem to grate on your nerves daily? It seems to happen to me quite frequently. When it happens one time, it may not be a big deal but as it happens over and over again, it can quickly get frustrating. That seems to be the case in this video, and Alice is the target of the vicar’s frustration. She seems to have a habit of picking up the vicar’s phone to answer it for her, but the vicar would like to answer her own phone. She gives [More]
I don’t know about you, but I am constantly amazed with the shows that they come up with for television. It seems as if they pull them out of a hat, and apparently, French and Saunders feel the same way. After watching this parody of a new TV show “Lucky Bitches”, you will be left laughing at the reality of it all! We are often amazed at the brilliance of Dawn French and how she can turn such normal situations into something so funny. This is an absolutely brilliant sketch and it is one that you will treasure every time [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.
There are many reasons to love Dawn French, and we may have our own reasons when we stop to think about it. For some people, it is because she is such a versatile individual and can play many different parts. For others, it is her ability to make us laugh. You will see them all come together in this clip, where she is taking a poke at Madonna and doing so perfectly. For this video, Dawn teams up with her well known partner, Jennifer Saunders and the two of them are taking on an entirely different personality. As soon as [More]
There are certain things that we appreciate in life and we want to make sure that we get the most out of all of them. At times, it may be something large, such as our house or our car but at other times, it is the simple things in life that really make a difference. It seems as if the Vicar is having a similar feeling about her undergarments. When she is discussing a party that happened at her home recently, she comes across a bra that was left at the vicarage. She discusses how it was Madonna’s bra, but [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]
It doesn’t matter who we are, there is going to be someone in our little group that just marches to the beat of their own drum. It seems that they just keep saying one funny thing after another, even through they don’t intend on doing so. For the people who live in Dibley, that person is Jim. He is well known for saying no but he also has something unusual to say on any subject, no matter what it is. In this clip, they are getting together some money for a Dibley video night for those who don’t have their [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 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]
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]
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]
It can be difficult to figure out what to give somebody for their birthday, especially when it is a monumental date. That is the case with the group when they are trying to decide what to give the vicar for her 40th birthday. After a few unusual suggestions are given, somebody suggests that they give her some antiaging cream. The antiaging cream is actually a fairly good idea, but then they go off on a rather strange tangent. They start to try to guess what the seven signs of aging are that the cream can affect. As they think about [More]
When you think back to the time you were in school, you probably remember it with a smile on your face. Sure, there were some issues that may have taken place during that time but they really were the “good old days” and I don’t know many people would disagree. If you would like to take a walk down memory lane, you might just be able to do so with this brilliant skit. There have been many comedy teams over the years, some of which are still able to make us laugh, even years after they put together a skit. [More]
The comedy team of Dawn French and Jennifer Saunders has a very nice gift, they are able to make people laugh. Fortunately, they have taken advantage of that gift many times in the past and we always get a good chuckle out of it. It doesn’t matter if they are poking fun at someone famous or just playing a part, it turns out funny in the end. This clip is a great example of how they can make us laugh. Many of us look back on our youth as being a simple time in life. Those days do seem to [More]
It doesn’t seem to matter what Dawn French is doing, we are able to get a good laugh out of it. That was especially the case when it came to the Vicar of Dibley, a show that many of us miss and wish was still on the air. When it was, we had the opportunity to laugh on a regular basis at the crazy things that always seemed to follow Dawn from one week to the next. In this video, we get to look back on the time when the Vicar was planning on installing a new window and she [More]
