    For the people you like comedy AND Jennifer Saunders, I just discovered a new sitcom/britcom called The Life and Times of Vivienne Vyle. It airs Sundays on The Sundance Channel, but if you don't have that you can watch whole episodes on a certain website on which you view millions of videos (it rhymes with ***cube).
    Jennifer Saunders (of AbFab fame) stars as a trashy daytime talk show host. It is described as a black comedy so I guess it may prove to be a personal preference. Anyway, it also stars Miranda Richardson, who is brilliantly funny. And Jennifer (Vivienne) has a gay husband. Ha.

    I'd post a vid clip, but I don't know how, so just check it out online.

    Jennifer Saunders is brilliant, especially since she usually writes her own material, often in conjunction with her occasional comedy partner, Dawn French. I will look for this.

    this is, easily, one of the best shows on television right now. jennifer saunders is BACK with a vengeance and it top form from both a writing and acting perspective. the flat she shares with her "husband' is so brilliantly designed, i couldn't do it justice here. her character is seemingly set on slow simmer and it's a blast to wait for her to reach a full boil. ok - THAT was one of the gayest things i've ever written. suffice to say, i love the show and am in no way connected to it. just a fan. that is all.

    One of the many good things about growing up Aussie. As down here I grew up with a good mix of British,and American TV and Music.

    I find this show amusing. Political Correctness almost killed the British comedy. But they are over it, and on top of the game again, with shows like Little Britten, A league of gentlemen, and the comedy at hand.

    Love they neighbor, and Until death do we part. I truly loved as a kid. They would drive a political correction Nazi nuts.

    Go you Pome's, and thanks for all the laughs.

    Thanks, Maverickcj.
    Yes, MetroPAUL, that does sound pretty gay, but, thanks to you, I've been describing her character as being "...set on slow simmer and it's a blast to wait for her to reach full boil" all day. icon_idea.gif
