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]
Dawn French and Jennifer Saunders do a parody of the movie “What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?”
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]
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]
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]
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]
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]
Starring: Helen Mirren, Julia Sawalha, Jennifer Saunders & Dawn French
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]
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]
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]
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]
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]
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]
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]
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]
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]
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]
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]
