Caroline's Comedy Base
Ruby Wax Caroline Aherne Caroline Quentin
Arguably the most successful and popular woman in British comedy,
Dawn French often appears on our screens as The Vicar of Dibley.
She is also the famous sidekick of the Absolutely Fabulous Jennifer
Saunders, and regularly stars in Murder Most Horrid in a variety of guises.
Kathy Burke and James Dreyfus star in this cheeky sitcom about two
flatmates looking for love. Gimme Gimme Gimme is the type of programme
you either love or hate, but its popularity has lasted two series and a
special, with hopefully still more to come.
With one of the most famous bums in Britain, Arabella Weir found her feet
in The Fast Show, and continues to prove herself as a multi talented
comedienne with two best selling novels under her belt.
Meera Syal is a best selling author and star member of the Goodness
Gracious Me team, who have immortalised phrases such as 'Kiss My
Chuddies' while their critically acclaimed popular humour manages to
poke fun at Asian and non-Asian audiences alike.
Victoria Wood is seen as a national treasure, her comedy reaches audiences
across the board and most her recent sitcom 'Dinnerladies' was the second
most popular comedy programme of 1999. She is also famous for her musical
comedy and her stand up shows immediately sell out wherever she performs.
The future head of BBC TV Comedy and star of Can't Cook Won't Cook, Caroline Marshall
first put her Dawn French website online in 1997. Four years on she
continues to be a devoted fan and regularly updates the site, while every
now and again she creates a new page dedicated to the next comedian
who earns her respect and (greatly coveted) admiration.
