Dawn French was made wildly famous for her role as the amorous and hilariously rowdy lady priest in the UK TV comedy hit The Vicar of Dibley.”

Dawn is one of Britain’s best loved comedians. Recently she finally put pen to paper and talked about herself. Set out in a series of letters to people in her life, including husband Lenny Henry and her father, who committed suicide when she was a teen, her autobiography followed her rise from a simple country lass to one of the world’s most lauded and successful female comics of our time.

Jennifer Saunders gained global notoriety as the decadently drunken UK fashionista and suburban divorcee, “Edwina Monsoon” in TV Britcom phenomenon and comedy smash hit “Absolutely Fabulous.”

Who are French and Saunders?

“Only the best comedy duo in the world. Compiled by the talented Jennifer Saunders and Dawn French. The pair met at the Central School of Speech and Drama. Jennifer was the one who replied to an advert for comediennes at The Comic Strip and brought Dawn with her.

They began their career in “The Comedy Store” in London, with fellow comedians Adrian Edmondson , Rik Mayall, Nigel Planer, Alexei Sayle and Peter Richardson , who later opened his own club, “The Comic Strip”, where these comedians quickly formed a regular format. The Comic Strip team were transferred to television screens with great success as they all starred alongside each other in “The Comic Strip presents…” (1982)” .
