Dawn French is the doyenne of British comedy, with a successful career that started in the 1980s when she was part of the innovative troupe The Comedy Strip. As one half of the funniest and most successful comedy double acts of all time, French and Saunders, her brilliantly observed performances established her as a formidable comic talent. As the female vicar Geraldine Granger in the long-running and hugely popular series The Vicar of Dibley she delighted audiences for fourteen years. She has also appeared in Wild West and Jam and Jerusalem and will star in her own new series, High Table, later this year.
Now this affectionate biography tells the remarkable story of her rise to fame, from her childhood and the trauma of her father's death to her meeting with Jennifer Saunders and her long-lasting marriage to Lenny Henry. It is an entertaining and often moving story that is sure to appeal to her millions of fans.
