From the vault: AbFab B4 AbFab


In the early days of French and Saunders, the comedy duo created a sketch that would later become the sensational Absolutely Fabulous. This pre-Vicar role for Dawn French had her playing the daughter to Saunders’ mother character. Saunders later developed the idea for the BBC series back in 1992 and the rest is history. While the characters of Patsy and Edina were definitely memorable, next time you watch the series, don’t overlook Jane Horrocks as Bubble and June Whitfield as Saunders’ mother.
