Funny Ladies of British Comedy Think of Keeping Up Appearances' social climber extraordinaire Hyacinth Bucket (Patricia Routledge), and how about that chocolate-guzzling vicar, Geraldine Grainger (Dawn French) of The Vicar of Dibley. And who can forget Sybil Fawlty (Prunella Scales), whose cry of "Basil!" still inspires fear and laughter after nearly thirty years?
Join them and their talented, funny colleagues for this celebration of their careers and contributions. Combining new interviews with clips of their funniest moments, The Funny Ladies of British Comedy takes you behind the scenes of your favorite Britcoms, and answers the question, "Who makes these funny ladies laugh?" Bonus Material: Interviews: Brand new interviews with Patricia Routledge, Mollie Sugden, Dawn French and Jon Plowman (producer of Absolutely Fabulous and The Vicar of Dibley)
Our favorite funny ladies have given us a wide range of unforgettable characters. From Vicar Geraldine Granger, who could be both pious and vampish, to that diva of the upper middle class, Hyacinth Bucket (pronounced boo-KAY). From the saintly patience of Sybil Fawlty (how else could she have put up with Basil?) to the strong-willed independence of Jean Pargetter that always kept Lionel on his toes. Join host Penelope Keith as she explores the many sides of some of the funniest characters ever brought to life by her humble self as well as the likes of Molly Sugden (Are You Being Served?), Dawn French (The Vicar of Dibley), Patricia Routledge (Keeping Up Appearances), Judi Dench (As Time Goes By) and many more. Bonus Material: 40 Minutes of Interviews with the Funny Ladies
