French & Saunders sing “I Should Be So Lucky” and eat hamburgers, for their voice.
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]
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]
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]
Dawn French and Jennifer Saunders do a parody of the movie “What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?”
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]
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]
What is the first thing that you do after you come home from a hard day at work? If you are like most people, you want nothing more than to stretch out on the sofa and to forget about the day. The easiest way for you to do this is to turn on the telly and watch a little bit of comedy. One of our favourite comedy shows has been and always will be Absolutely Fabulous, but did you realise where the show got its start? Jennifer Saunders does a wonderful job of playing on the show, and while it [More]
More than likely, you have a favourite comedian that is always able to make you laugh. They seem to be able to pull us up out of the darkest mood and put a smile on our face, regardless of how we are feeling. That is the case with the comedy team of Dawn French and Jennifer Saunders. They just seem to find a way to make any situation seem funny and we love them for it. If you have watched French and Saunders in action in the past, you realise that it is not out of character for them to [More]
If there is one thing I appreciate about the telly, it’s the fact that you never quite know what you are going to see. In some cases, it is a comedy, or perhaps you see a drama but through it all, they are there to entertain us. One thing that many of us love about the telly are the reality type shows, including the Antique Roadshow. We get to see real people in real situations finding out what their precious antiques are worth. As a fan of Dawn French, we recognise just how versatile she is. That is especially true [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]
French and Saunders are quite the comedy team and this parody proves that they can make audiences laugh, regardless of the situation. In this skit, they take on The Piano, and they work their way masterfully through it. You will be laughing from the moment that it starts and you won’t stop until long after it is over! The Piano was a dramatic film released in 1993 about a piano player (who was mute) and her daughter. Although comedy was not a big part of this movie, it certainly is a large part of this Dawn French and Jennifer Saunders [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]
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]
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]
I remember taking a lot of school trips in my lifetime but I never remember any of them that were quite the same as what was experienced by French and Saunders. Of course, watching some of their antics while they were on the trip brought a lot of funny memories back as well. It doesn’t matter if French and Saunders are portraying schoolchildren on a class trip or if they are imitating a movie or famous actors, what they do is amazingly funny. You will come back to this video time and to enjoy what they offer.
When most of us think about Dawn French, we are likely to first think about her in a role, such as what she played in the Vicar of Dibley. We might also think about some of the comedy she has done over the years, and she certainly has done her fair share of standup as well. For those of us who really know Dawn French, however, we think about the partnerships she has forged, especially with Jennifer Saunders. Over the years, French and Saunders have put together some very funny routines. In most cases, they are poking fun at someone, [More]
In my opinion, the Graham Norton show is the greatest chat show that has ever been on television. When he has celebrities appear on the stage, you never quite know who is going to be there together and you never quite know what is going to take place. It is part of the magic of what he brings to the table and we certainly do get a look behind the scenes in the lives of many of those celebrities. On this particular show, Graham Norton had two of the most amazing women on the stage at the same time. Dawn [More]
