Jennifer Saunders

Biography: Born in 1958 in Sleaford, Lincolnshire, into an RAF family, Jennifer Saunders originally trained to be a teacher at London's Central School of Speech and Drama. It was here that she met and, later, forged a friendship with Dawn French. They later shared a flat together and towards the end of their programme started writing and performing comedy together. Jennifer was not a thorough academic and when she finished at the School did not go on to become a teacher. But, by chance Jennifer spotted an advertisment from the Comic Strip calling for a pair of comediennes. The rest, as they say, is history. French & Saunders have become one of Britain's most cherished double-acts, making mirth through the late Eighties and throughout the Nineties. As well as her commitment to Dawn French, Jennifer has freely pursued her own comedy ideas. Her name will forever be associated with 'Absolutely Fabulous' which won worldwide acclaim and cult status. Jennifer is married to the comedian Adrian Edmondson who played in the BBC comedy series 'The Young Ones' and 'Bottom' with Rik Mayall. They appeared together on TV in the 1998 French & Saunders Christmas Special in which Adrian played harassed 'Titanic' director James Macaroon. Jennifer Saunders has three daughters Freya, Beattie and Ella. Expand
