Dawn French and Jennifer Saunders are doyens of what was known as the British New Wave of comedy - post oxbridge the rise of the Young Ones etc.
They had a long running sketch show on Brit TV (don't think it aired here very often). Each has had impressive solo careers: French for Vicar of Dibley and Saunders for Absolutely Fabulous. But there has plenty of other stuff.
They appeared with key members of the Young Ones in 'The Comic Strip Presents...'
And indeed Saunders married 'Vyvian' from the Young Ones (Adrian Edmondson) and French married famous British stand up Lenny Henry (divorced last year after 26 years of marriage)
But my fondest memories are them playing teenagers talking about sex:
Which I should probably post in Edgar's Youtube comedy thread....
