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 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]
There are many of us who would like the opportunity to speak with a celebrity. If we had a little time with them, we could talk to them and see who they really were; not just who we saw when they were performing. For example, what if you could spend a few minutes with Dawn French? What would you ask and how would you spend the time? Fortunately, we do get the opportunity do spend some time with her, even if we only get to do so vicariously. In this clip, we spend 5 minutes with Dawn and what we [More]
Dawn French and Jennifer Saunders do a parody of the movie “What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?”
The Vicar is about to get married and it seems as if the wedding is in full swing. Everybody in the village is preparing to take her through the wedding, and they have told her that they were going to do everything for her. Even though she wanted to do it herself, they felt that it was the best thing to take that stress off of her hands. Alice brings the Vicar her flower bouquet for the wedding, and it is quite lovely. That is, of course, until she finds out that it actually holds a rather unusual secret. When [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]
When we think back to our wedding day, it is likely that we remember many special moments that took place. Those moments seem to start from the time that we began preparing for that special day up until the time that we said I do and even beyond. One thing that is special for many people is the ride to the chapel, and they may even have a special car waiting for them. The vicar has a car waiting for her as well, and Owen is even the chauffeur. It seems as if everything is going just perfectly, and he [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]
Starring: Helen Mirren, Julia Sawalha, Jennifer Saunders & Dawn French
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]
Dawn French is at it again in this hilarious parody of the popular TV show, Big Brother. In this masterful, comedic portrayal of one of the guests, she is obviously overly excited and is asking for everything from booze to fags (cigarettes). The only thing I wonder is if Dawn is going to get evicted because of her rant or not! You’ll have to watch to see. The television show, Big Brother, has gained a significant amount of popularity worldwide. It takes a group of individuals and puts them under close scrutiny as they live together under the same roof. [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]
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]
While they are relaxing at home on a December evening, French and Saunders decide that it would be fun to impersonate some other celebrities. They go back and forth with each other, and you are not going to believe some of the people that they come up with! From the beginning to the end, this classic clip will leave you in stitches and wanting more. There have been many famous celebrities who were able to impersonate others. Some are able to impersonate their physical looks while others impersonate their inflections and voice patterns. When you combine these, as Dawn French [More]
When most of us are together for a meeting, we try to be as formal as possible but that doesn’t necessarily mean that we are going to follow all of the rules of parliamentary procedure. As a matter of fact, most of us don’t even know those rules and even if we were to try, it is unlikely that we would stick with them stringently. That is the case, however, when the committee meets for a meeting in Dibley. That is especially true because David Horton is in charge of the meeting, and he wants everything to be run just [More]
French and Saunders are a comedy team like no other. They take on one person after another, perfectly performing a parody that will leave you in stitches. In this skit, they take on the directing skills of Ingmar Bergman in a comedic display that will leave you wanting more! It is funny from the beginning to the end! Ingmar Bergman was a Swedish film director and producer who was responsible for many famous films, including Wild Strawberries, The Seventh Seal and Persona. During His career, he was involved in more than 60 films but I bet he never saw this [More]
Before the wedding day takes place, we often get together with family and friends to enjoy some good times and to celebrate the big day before it happens. In many cases, a party will be thrown in your honour and you might just have a surprise or two when you get there. The members of the town came together to have a party for the Vicar prior to her walk down the aisle as well. It started out with a fun game of “this is your life” and it pretty much went downhill from there. In this clip, you see [More]
