French & Saunders live show coming to London

Dawn French and Jennifer Saunders are teaming up again for a four week series of London comedy shows, entitled Still Alive at Drury Lane's Theatre Royal.

The comedy pair, who have performed together for many years, are said to be featuring the best of previous sketches and characters, as well as some new material.

French and Saunders have been touring the UK since February and the London shows will open on the 15th October 2008 and will run until early November.

Dawn French and Jennifer Saunders started writing and performing sketches together in the French and Saunders shows in the 1980s and carried on through to the 1990s, with one series and various specials of the show being produced well into the 2000s.

Both have also carried on to forge successful solo careers in television and film. This has included Jennifer Saunders staring as Edina (Eddy) Monsoon in Absolutely Fabulous (simply known as Ab Fab for short), alongside Joanna Lumley. One of Dawn French's most successful solo projects has been in the TV sit-com The Vicar of Dibley.
