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]
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]
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]
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]
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]
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]
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]
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]
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 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]
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 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]
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]
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]
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]
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]
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]
French & Saunders sing “I Should Be So Lucky” and eat hamburgers, for their voice.
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]
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]
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]
