Leading Ladies

28 March 2018

Paying homage to some of the funniest women in British broadcasting, BA presents a medley of entertainment featuring Jennifer Saunders, Dawn French and Joanna Lumley. Jennifer Saunders and Dawn French first launched their comedy sketch show
French and Saunders in 1987.
Last year, to celebrate the 30th anniversary of their hilarious double-act, they released 300 Years of French and Saunders, a collection of their best clips plus a few new bits thrown in for good measure. When the pair filmed the ‘new bits’ in front of a live audience, some 35 thousand people applied for the 350 audience spaces, which just goes to show that their legacy is far from over. And with the recent Absolutely Fabulous movie, it’s clear that fans haven’t had enough of the adventures of Edina and Patsy either, played by Saunders and Joanna Lumley. Dip into the iconic TV show with three episodes from its fifth season playing onboard. Watch the pair doing what they do best, (being funny and drinking champagne), in Absolutely Champers, in which they tour the Champagne region in France.
