There are a number of reasons to enjoy the colder months of the year but for many of us, it is the Christmas season that really keeps us from going stir crazy. We get the chance to get together with family and friends to enjoy a meal or some company. Through it all, we have our music and when you see what is taking place in this video, you will see that Dawn French has hers as well. As Dawn is sitting in front of a big fireplace, she is entertaining someone and it just seems as if she is [More]
When we come home after a long day, the one thing we really want to do is to sit back and relax for a while. The best way to do so is with a smile, and watching clips from the Vicar of Dibley is a sure way to achieve that goal. In fact, you might just find that you are feeling a lot better after watching a few of these. In this clip, the Vicar is telling a joke to Alice. We have seen this happen many times in the past and for some reason or another, they just don’t [More]
When it comes to funny people, there is sure to be some who come to your mind before others. Dawn French is one of those people and it doesn’t matter what she is doing, she is going to make you laugh. We’ve seen her working with Jennifer Saunders on stand up comedy and on various funny television shows, such as the Vicar of Dibley. Through it all, she never fails to put a smile on our face. In this clip, we get to see Dawn French playing a rather unusual role. She is playing Vicky Pollard’s mum and from the [More]
What is the first thing that comes to your mind when you think of Dawn French? Like most people, you think about her comedy or perhaps her shows, such as the Vicar of Dibley. You might even think of some of her skits that included other comedians, such as Jennifer Saunders. Although you certainly would be correct in any of those instances, there is something you should not leave out of the mix. Her ability to DANCE! In this brilliant video, Dawn shows her stuff throughout the years. In some cases, she is on stage with Jennifer Saunders and sometimes [More]
When we want to protest something and see some positive change, there are many ways to do so. Some of us will do something drastic or perhaps we may write a letter to show our dissatisfaction. At other times, however, we might consider having a petition signed and it is a great way to have the voices of many people heard. In Dibley, they are facing a serious crisis. They are about to lose their homes but they aren’t about to go quietly. They start to organise the signing of a petition, but things don’t go as well as they [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]
Something that many of us have is a “bucket list” and we may try to fill everything on the list while we are still alive. For some of us, it may be so fairly normal items that are easily accomplished but for others, it could include some rather unusual items. When it comes to these Irish nuns, they have the opportunity to see the Pope in person and it is obvious that they are able to cross off one of the items on their bucket list as well. When it comes to Dawn French, many of us recognise that she [More]
We have seen Dawn French in so many different roles through the years that it is difficult to know where to start. It certainly does make it difficult to choose one that is our favourite but for many, it does fall on the Vicar of Dibley. It is the show that introduced many of us to this funny lady and, while it was on the air, we never missed one of the shows. Of course, when we were watching the Vicar of Dibley, we saw the cut version that was made for the telly. What we didn’t see was what [More]
When we think of Dawn French, most of us think about her abilities as a comedienne. It doesn’t matter if she is playing a part on the telly, such as the Vicar of Dibley or if she is doing a standup routine with Jennifer Saunders, we almost start laughing before we can watch the show. In this video, however, you get to see a different side of Dawn French and it is one that just makes you love her even more. Dawn French was installed formally at the new chancellor of Falmouth University. You get to see the ceremony, which [More]
One of the biggest phobias that most people have is speaking in front of a group of people. In fact, just the thought of it can send many people sweating to the back of the room. There are also those who do it regularly, but that doesn’t mean they are not nervous. When the vicar had worked up her part for Sunday, she was nervous about how it would come across. In order to know, she turned to the person who was there, Alice. The only problem is, Alice kept going on and on about how she is “all ears” [More]
When we are in a situation where things are not going our way, we may have a wide range of emotions. At times, it may make us want to retaliate, but most of us restrain ourselves because we understand the implications of doing so. That doesn’t mean, however, that we don’t wish we could do it. When they are having a water crises in Dibley, they certainly are up against a wall. Things just go downhill when they find out that they are not only having a problem with water, they are about to lose their homes when the village [More]
If there is one thing that most of us truly appreciate, it’s a good joke. At times, it doesn’t even need to be the funniest thing that we have ever heard, it just needs to be told in the right way and it needs to come across at the right time. When it does, it can really perk us up and put a smile on our face. Unfortunately, there are going to be times when we try to tell a joke and it doesn’t necessarily land properly. That is a problem that the vicar often has, because her audience is [More]
There are certain things that many of us enjoy in life, and many of those revolve around the dinner table. As a matter of fact, it is often said that it is difficult to be angry when we are eating dinner with others, but it also appears as if it is difficult to not smile when you are eating dinner with Dawn French. That is going to become evident in this brilliant video that includes some other very funny individuals. When Jennifer Saunders has Dawn French over for some nibbles, you better believe that there is going to be some [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]
The comedy team of Dawn French and Jennifer Saunders has a very nice gift, they are able to make people laugh. Fortunately, they have taken advantage of that gift many times in the past and we always get a good chuckle out of it. It doesn’t matter if they are poking fun at someone famous or just playing a part, it turns out funny in the end. This clip is a great example of how they can make us laugh. Many of us look back on our youth as being a simple time in life. Those days do seem to [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.
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]
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]
There are many different things that take place on the wedding day that could be considered memorable. You have the walk down the wedding aisle, the toast by the best man and sometimes, you may even have some entertainment on the side. That is where Jim and Owen come in. In order to commemorate the Vicar’s wedding in the best way they know how, they have planned a wedding song. As they sit and play it for the vicar, you can see that it wasn’t quite what she had in mind. In their typical style, however, they managed to come [More]
If there is one thing that we appreciate about Dawn French, it is her ability to make something funny out of any situation. We have seen her do it countless times on her own, either in a standup routine or perhaps playing on the Vicar of Dibley. When she is paired with Jennifer Saunders, however, things tend to go to the next level. That is certainly what we are seeing in this video clip. Dawn French and Jennifer Saunders have played many roles over the years, including some parodies that were quite funny. In this clip, however, they are playing [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]
