Jennifer Saunders | The Entertainment Consultancy

One of the most influential women in British television comedy over the last twenty years, writer and actress Jennifer Saunders first found success as one half of the double act French and Saunders. However, it was writing and starring in the sitcom Absolutely Fabulous that confirmed her status as a leading player in British comedy.

French and Saunders was a landmark in female-led television comedy which showcased their devastatingly sharp observations on both femininity and masculinity and made a recurring feature of their characters' entertaining bickering. A sketch in the third series of French and Saunders inspired her to write Absolutely Fabulous.
