When you watch a television show on a regular basis, it seems as if you get to know the individuals who are behind the show and the cast almost on a one on one basis. We know there are ups and downs and we follow the plot quite closely. When it comes to any show with Dawn French included, we also love the comedy and that is what makes her such a special individual. In this well-known clip from the Vicar of Dibley, a formal introduction is taking place. Of course, we recognise that introductions are not inherently funny but [More]
It is difficult to think about Dawn French doing anything and not have a big smile on our face. After all, it seems as if comedy follows her in everything that she does, regardless of whether it is a joke she is telling on the stage or one of her brilliant shows from TV. I can’t count the number of times that I’ve laughed at what this actress was doing, and I’m sure that you have had a similar experience. Of course, there are some bits of comedy from Dawn French that are always going to be popular, and one [More]
Have you ever had the responsibility to make something clear to individuals who were participating in a large event? Perhaps it had to do with directing them for parking purposes or it may have been getting them to walk in a certain area. In any case, you already recognise that it can be quite difficult and it has some rather unique challenges that go along with it. It appears as if Jim is having such a difficulty in this clip, and it is very funny to watch. Jim Trott is perhaps one of the funniest individuals on the Vicar 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]
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]
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 go through our day-to-day lives without really thinking much about what is taking place around us. Most people tend to ignore us as we are going about our business, but that is not always true of everyone. When you’re a celebrity, it seems like you are always in the public spotlight and it doesn’t matter what you are doing, somebody is going to be there to watch you and to make a comment about it. Some celebrities love being in the spotlight but others have a difficulty with the lack of privacy. When it comes to Dawn [More]
Many of us have become quite familiar with Dawn French and Jennifer Saunders and we may see them in a variety of comical situations. Perhaps we are most familiar with seeing them together on stage and doing some type of standup routine or skit. They have also played on television shows together and they even came up with the concept for some other popular shows, even though they weren’t starring on them regularly. Sometimes, we may be able to spot French and Saunders in a rather unique role, but we need to know where to look and how to find [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]
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]
There are some television shows that provide all of the material necessary for a hilarious parody. When it falls in the sights of French and Saunders, you can imagine that you are going to laugh from the beginning to the end. In this parody, America’s next top model is targeted and what French and Saunders are able to do is amazing. They play off of each other perfectly throughout the skit. America’s next top model had its premiere in 2003 and continues to be shown today. With hundreds of episodes, there certainly is plenty of material available for this French [More]
We have seen Dawn French in a number of very funny scenes from a variety of television shows and standup routines. One of those that many of you probably appreciate is the time that she played on the sitcom, Girls on Top. Although it only existed from 1984 to 1985, Dawn French certainly did leave her mark and you can see one of the funnier scenes in this clip. In this scene, Dawn French is completely enamored by a special guest star that was appearing on the show that week, Hugh Laurie. Not only is she enamored with him, she [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]
Is there anything that Dawn French and Jennifer Saunders do that isn’t funny? This video shows them in a rather common situation, having some computer troubles. In fact, most of us have found ourselves in this situation at some time in the past. When we watch what they do to try and fix the computer, it is not only going to make us laugh at them, we will laugh at ourselves as well. Computers certainly are convenient but there are many times when they cause us frustrations. This video shows that the frustration is often misapplied, but it is done [More]
Although much of what French and Saunders do is based in the UK, they certainly don’t limit themselves to that area of the world. For example, Alanis Morrissette is a Canadian-American rock singer who is well known for her unusual musical style. It was the perfect target for French and Saunders and when they do this parody, you will laugh out loud until it hurts. Alanis Morrissette got her start in 1987 with the release of her first demo. Since that time, however, she has produced a number of top 40 singles and continues to receive a lot of airtime [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.
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 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]
It can be very exciting to prepare for an upcoming event, regardless of whether it is something big or something small. On this episode of the Vicar of Dibley, they are preparing for a Christmas show that is called, The Greatest Story Ever Told. It seems as if everybody is prepared for the show but not everybody has the same idea as to the theme. When they begin to talk about it, things get hilarious very quickly. The problem that they are having is that they can’t agree that the story is factual. They aren’t talking about the story behind [More]
As fans of Dawn French, we try to watch everything she plays in, regardless of how large or small. That is especially true of the Vicar of Dibley, which is perhaps what she is best known for. The show was fantastic and the only thing we didn’t like about it is that it eventually came to an end. I can’t tell you how many times I sat and laughed at what was going on in each episode. If you love the Vicar of Dibley, you may be wondering where it was actually filmed. Yes, the show itself was a sitcom [More]
If there is one thing that we have come to appreciate about the Vicar of Dibley, it is fact that it extended far beyond a common sitcom. Yes, it certainly was funny and we got the chance to chuckle at it on many occasions but it also had a spark that most other shows were missing. In fact, you never quite knew what was going to take place from one episode to the next. In this clip, Dawn French has found herself in a bit of a pickle and we get to laugh along at the scene. She is preparing [More]
If there is one thing that many of us recognise about Dawn French and Jennifer Saunders, it is the fact that they can transform themselves into almost anything that is necessary to play a role. At one moment, they may be poking fun at a celebrity, such as Cher or Madonna but before you know it, they are someone completely different. In this clip, they play a rather unexpected pair and it is quite funny to watch. In this clip, they play car park attendants, and you are going to be amazed with how they are able to transform into [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]
There have been many shows on the telly that we have watched over the years and it continues to be a source of relaxation and enjoyment for many of us. Some of those shows are designed to make us laugh, others may be of a more serious nature. One of the latter is Monarch of the Glen, a drama series that was on the telly up until it was canceled in 2005. It was a show that we followed closely. Just because it was a serious drama series does not mean that there is no room for laughter. That will [More]
