B4 Geraldine and House


Many of your favorite Britcom stars had several series under their belts before that one classic role that we all know them for today. Over the next couple of weeks, we’ll dig up some classic telly clips from the early days of British comedy stars so you can enjoy not only where they are now, but where they came from.

Dawn French and Hugh Laurie in Girls on Top – Dawn French, Jennifer Saunders, Ruby Wax and Tracy Ullman starred in this short-lived 1985 series about four women who share nothing in common (except a liking for Hugh Laurie) that end up living together in a flat in Kensington.

There are lots more of these to be tracked down. If you have a favorite Britcom star, let me know and I will dig into the video vault and showcase some more early days on the telly. Cheers.
