When we are planning for a big event, there is typically a lot to do. We need to make sure that everything is prepared so that anyone who shows up for the event is going to enjoy it to the greatest extent possible. It looks as if the vicar and everyone else is also preparing, because they think that Elton John is coming to Dibley. As they are getting ready, painting some signs, there are a lot of things that take place in the background. This is a hilarious scene that just keeps getting funnier, each time you watch it. [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]
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]
Have you ever had a brilliant idea but it seems as if nobody is on board with it? We may even talk people into working along with us, but when it comes time to put everything together, our help suddenly disappears. The Vicar is experiencing something similar in this clip, and it has the most hilarious results. When the Vicar decided to start a book club, she didn’t want anything extraordinary, she just wanted everyone to read a book and that they would discuss it together. When they actually got together at the house, however, she found out that nobody [More]
Although there may be many people of note that have touched our lives over the years, many of us would have to admit that Dawn French is near the top of the list. She is known for her comedy, both alone and with Jennifer Saunders, but when the two of them are together, it is absolutely brilliant. They make us laugh, and that is a fantastic gift. As individuals, we recognise what Dawn French brings to us but it was also recognised by some other people as well. The British Academy of Film and Television Arts has been providing awards [More]
Most people think about Dawn French and automatically, they picture her doing a standup routine with Jennifer Saunders or perhaps playing as the vicar of Dibley. Although those certainly are notable roles that she has played in the past, they are not the only choices that she has made in her life. The fact of the matter is, she is quite accomplished, not only as an actress and a comedian but also as a writer. Many fans of Dawn French do not realise that she wrote a book but back in 2009, she published the Dear Fatty book and it [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]
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]
We have seen Dawn French in a number of amazing roles over the years, but perhaps she is at her best when she is not quite herself. Of course, I’m not talking about her feeling poorly, I’m talking about her imitation of people, both famous and infamous. It just seems to be something that makes us laugh because she is able to take on any persona brilliantly. In this clip, she is taking on Amy Winehouse, who was an English singer and songwriter. She was known for her rather unique singing voice, as well as for being in the news [More]
One of the things that we have appreciated about the Vicar of Dibley is the fact that the characters have developed over the years. At times, when we look back on how they got their start in the show, we may find that it is not quite in line with where they are today. Through it all, however, they find a way to bring laughter to us through this brilliant show. In this scene, we are looking back on the time when Owen Newitt first met the Vicar, and things didn’t quite go as well as they could. As you [More]
Have you ever just been standing there minding your own business when suddenly, you see someone who has something that you want? It doesn’t matter if it is something that is large or small, it seems to trigger something in us that we just can’t control. It is a feeling of envy, but it is something that many of us hide from others, even if we are experiencing it. In this brilliant sketch by Dawn French and Jennifer Saunders, we see envy taking place in the worst way ever. Jennifer is enjoying a delicious treat and Dawn can’t help but [More]
There are many funny people and they have the ability to make us laugh. There is nothing quite like a good chuckle after a difficult day or perhaps to set the mood for a nice evening. Two of the people who have that ability are Dawn French and Jennifer Saunders. We see them in this clip and they are absolutely brilliant when it comes to being funny. This French and Saunders scene is from an Easter show and they are setting up for a dinner party. The problem is, nobody is there except the two of them so Dawn is [More]
When most of us think about the Vicar of Dibley we automatically think about Dawn French. Although she certainly was an integral part of the show and it wouldn’t be the same without her, there were also many other talented individuals who played their part as well. Emma Chambers was one of those people, and her part as Alice Tinker certainly brought some life to the show. In this video clip, we see Alice driving Dawn mad, as she usually does. She is talking about the product, I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter, but she takes it a step further. [More]
Many of us spend a considerable amount of time watching television or perhaps going to the films. In either case, we are doing so to pass the time and because we enjoy being entertained in that way. One of the ways in which we are entertained is through comedy, and the team of Dawn French and Jennifer Saunders has certainly provided us with a lot of laughter over the years. More than likely, you have seen this comedy team in a variety of situations, each of which is certain to make you laugh. They just seem to have that type [More]
Many of us have enjoyed the comedy of Dawn French and Jennifer Saunders over the years. It seems as if anytime they are on the screen together, they just seem to play off of each other brilliantly. You can’t help but laugh at the things that they say and sometimes, they don’t even need to say something funny in order for it to be the most hilarious thing you will see all day. As is true with many different comedians, it is not always what you see on the screen but it is also what takes place behind the scenes [More]
You never quite know what is going to happen when you appear on a chat show. Sometimes, things may go rather well and you are really only there to give an interview. At other times, however, you might find that things take a rather unusual turn and before you know it, you are just improvising your way through it. When that takes place, it is best if you just put on a smile and roll with it. When Dawn French went on the Graham Norton Show to promote her own book, she probably thought she would basically be taking part [More]
When most of us think about the team of Dawn French and Jennifer Saunders, our minds automatically think about their comedy and how they make us laugh. It certainly is true that they have that ability, and they seem to play off of each other brilliantly in anything that they do together. In fact, they are quite possibly the best known female comedy team of all time. That being said, there are also going to be times when they take things down a level and get a little serious. That is what you are going to see in this video, [More]
There are times when we tell a joke and it seems as if people just can’t stop laughing but at other times, they don’t seem to land all that well. When you are telling a joke yourself, it is a rather uncomfortable situation but if you are standing back and watching it happen to somebody else, it actually makes the joke a lot better. The Vicar of Dibley was telling a classic but she was telling it to her usual audience, and it just wasn’t landing. Of course, when Alice Tinker is the person listening to the joke, you can’t [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]
What do you do when you get frightened to help calm down again? Many of us have our own particular method, but you may want to try what was used by Alice Tinker in this brilliant Vicar of Dibley clip. Rather than being frightened of the storm outside, she decides to sing a Julie Andrews tune, A Few of My Favourite Things. Have you ever had a song in your head and it just seems as if you can’t quite get all of the words right? Obviously, that was what Alice was experiencing in this clip, and it is absolutely [More]
Dawn French is perhaps best known as being an English actress, but she also has many other skills as well. She is also a brilliant writer and, as you will see in this video, quite a comedienne as well. Of course, most of us are familiar with the humour of Dawn French and this video is no exception. It takes place with her appearing as the Vicar of Dibley, and she is telling one of her famous jokes to Alice Tinker. Can you imagine what it would be like to sit in front of Dawn French and have her tell [More]
“According to Yes” is Dawn French’s latest bestseller released in hardback in October of 2015. In this video clip, she talks about how she writes and gives us a little insight into the real person as opposed to her wonderful characters that we all know and love so well. Being Dawn and even though this is supposed to be a serious interview about all things literary you just know that she won’t be able to resist making some funny comments and exoressions it’s just inbuilt in her, and needless to say, she doesn’t disappoint. For those who don’t know when [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]
There are certain comedy teams that have the ability to make you smile, even before they start telling any jokes. Just knowing that they are together and are about to start on their routine is sure to make you smile. Sometimes, a group of comedians will get together and, although they don’t often perform on the same stage at the same time, you can’t help but laugh. They just seem to time their jokes perfectly. The group of comedians in this video don’t always perform together but you are going to love the fact that they are together for this [More]
