    Following on from the Harry Hill thread, what do we think of F&S?

    Somewhere between the two options...
    Better in scripted sitcoms these days, i think, not v. funny when they're doing their double act. Saunders is aging well... :biggrin:

    Agreed, I've never found them that funny when together but French in the Vicar of Dibley, for example, can be. Having said that I think she is a foil for all the other characters who are much funnier than her.

    I can never hear anything Jennifer Saunders is saying; it's like listening to a teenager speaking, who has no self-confidence.

    I'm glad I'm surfing on the tide of opinion with this one - would be mightily scared if it was the other way around!

    For me personally (as a bloke), woman simply aren't funny (as in haha funny).

    The problem with women is that, unlike men, they grow up. It takes the immature mind of a male to produce the kind of comedy that I like :biggrin:

    Never understood how they're lasted so long on TV - never found them funny in the slightest.
    Even Lenny Henry stopped being funny once he married Dawn French.
