I can’t tell you the number of times I have laughed at what Dawn French was doing. It doesn’t seem to matter what type of show she was on, it was guaranteed to be funny. It was true of her standup routines as well as her role on the Vicar of Dibley but perhaps some of her funniest parts came when she was working with Jennifer Saunders. It seems that they were able to play off of each other so well that a laugh was always on the way. In this clip, they are doing a routine from the 1989 [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 of us who appreciate a good joke but that doesn’t mean that everybody is going to follow the same line of humour. As a matter of fact, we may tell the funniest joke that we have ever heard but if we tell it to the wrong person, it is going to end up falling flat at the end. It can be quite a disappointment but if you are fast enough, you just may be able to save the laugh. Something similar happens every time the Vicar of Dibley tells Alice a joke. The joke may be funny [More]
You never quite know what you’re going to turn up when you are out looking for something unusual, and at times, a real gem may be found. That is why many of us love garage sales and auctions, because we had the opportunity to find something that may have been lost for years. As they say, one man’s trash is another man’s treasure, and somebody certainly found a treasure in this video clip. A man had been booked by the local Labour Party to show a film at a local venue, but the projector broke down that evening and he [More]
When we think back on our lives, there are probably a few things that stand out in our minds. Perhaps we may remember the day we got married or the birth of our children but looking back even further, we might remember our first kiss. There was something magical about it and we often remember it with a smile. In this clip, Hugo and Alice are standing in front of each other when they are visiting the Vicar. They both want to kiss but neither of them feels as if they are able to make that move. Fortunately, they have [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]
There are a lot of benefits to smiling and if you are able to laugh on a daily basis, the benefits may be extended even further. Many of us recognize that we feel better when we laugh but it is not only something that is in our head, it has been scientifically proven as well. Many of us look for a way to laugh on a daily basis because it can help relieve stress and has both physical and mental benefits. Sometimes, all it takes is a good joke and the vicar is telling one that is sure to make [More]
We have seen shows about almost anything you can possibly imagine in recent years. Perhaps one of the more unusual subjects, however, has been animal control. It is a reality TV subject, where they follow animal control officers around on a daily basis and look at all of the different situations they get themselves into. It looks as if Dawn French and Jennifer Saunders are taking a poke at this profession. We have seen French and Saunders play a number of different roles in the past. Perhaps they are doing a parody of a Madonna song or perhaps they are [More]
French & Saunders sing “I Should Be So Lucky” and eat hamburgers, for their voice.
When someone mentions Dawn French to you, what images come to your mind. There are quite a few that I can imagine, including the Vicar of Dibley and some of her standup routines with Jennifer Saunders. Of course, once I saw this clip, I realised that I was looking at perfection and I laughed so hard, I actually cried. I’m sure you will have a very similar response. In this clip, Dawn French is taking on the Harry Potter films and she is doing a brilliant job of it. Her role as Harry himself is about as perfect as you [More]
It looks like Dawn French is at it again and in this classic clip from a French and Saunders skit she is imagining that she is trying out for a replacement in the Eurythmics. In classic Dawn French style, she plays the part masterfully and you will be laughing out loud from the beginning to the end. In this clip, Dawn French is singing in the kitchen but most people limit their singing to the shower. This is by accident. The shower typically provides the acoustics that are necessary so that your voice sounds much better. It makes even an [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]
When most of us think about Dawn French, we think about her brilliant comedy. Some of her more famous work include the French and Saunders Show, where she played alongside Jennifer Saunders and the Vicar of Dibley. As we begin to look into her carreer further, we start to see that those parts were only scratching the surface of what this funny woman was able to do, and this little skit is no exception. This skit is from a very funny comedy could show that was played in the UK in the 1980s. In this particular episode, there were many [More]
Many of us have experienced the fear of standing on a stage in front of an audience. In fact, it is one of the most common fears that people face. In this video, we get the opportunity to see the Vicar in a similar situation, and she is giving her first sermon. Although she was nervous before ti started she ended up doing a fantastic job. When she got down and went into the back, she was greeted by the others who were waiting for her. One by one, they gave her compliments on what she did and even Jim [More]
There are many traditions attached to a wedding, which is why we make sure to plan them out in advance. Many of those traditions involve the actual ceremony, such as being walked down the aisle or exchanging rings at the altar. There are some thing that take place after the wedding as well, and they help to make it complete. One of those traditions is tossing out the bouquet, and according to the tradition, whoever catches it is going to get married next. Alice Tinker is about to toss her flowers and the vicar is standing the in the background, [More]
You never quite know what you are going to run into when the committee gets together in Dibley. They may talk on any number of different subjects but sooner or later, you are sure to get a laugh out of it. That is especially true when Jim is speaking, because his style of humour is brilliant. In this clip, they are discussing Lesbians, as they are sure that the Vicar has come out. In the process of the conversation, Jim manages to get things twisted around in the strangest way possible. He talks about Mrs Cropley and how she was [More]
It can be quite enjoyable to take the time and reminisce with someone that we have known for many years. Sometimes, we are able to jog our memory and remember things that we may not have thought about for decades. When Jim got together with David before the committee meeting, they started talking about the old days as well. After being together for a number of years, which we were privy to because of the television show, they certainly did have a lot to discuss. It seems as if David came up with one good memory after another but the [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]
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]
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 see Dawn French on the stage or on TV, she appears to be cool, calm and collected. It seems as if every line is delivered perfectly and everything is done with such precision that we couldn’t ever imagine her being nervous over going out and performing. Like many people, however, she does get nervous before a performance. It is a natural part of a talented person’s life, and one that she has some fun with in this brilliant clip. This was taken from The Full Wax, a TV series that had Ruby Wax hosing a wide variety of [More]
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]
