Dear Fatty – Dawn French

Posted on October 2nd, 2008 by in Biography, Non-Fiction

One of Britians most beloved comedienne Dawn French launches her autobiography, Dear Fatty this week. 

Dawn French is one of the greatest comedy actresses of our time, with a career that has spanned nearly three decades, encompassing a vast and brilliant array of characters. Loved for her irreverent humour, Dawn has achieved massive mainstream success while continuing to push boundaries and challenge stereotypes. Here, in her autobiography, she describes the twists and turns of the journey that would eventually establish her as a, perhaps unlikely – but nevertheless genuine, national treasure.

Dawn first appeared on the British entertainment scene as part of the groundbreaking alternative comedy group, the Comic Strip, marking a radical departure from the more traditional comedy acts of the time. Then, later came the all-female Girls On Top, which teamed Dawn with Jennifer Saunders, Ruby Wax and Tracy Ullman and firmly established women in British comedy.

As part of the wildly successful and much loved duo French and Saunders, Dawn helped create a repertoire of brilliantly observed recurring characters, parodying popular culture and impersonating everything from Madonna and Harry Potter to The Exorcist.

Dawn’s more recent role in the Vicar of Dibley again has showcased not only her talent but also her ability to take a controversial and topical issue and make it mainstream – and funny.

From her early years as an RAF child to her flat-sharing antics with Jennifer Saunders, from her outspoken views on sizism to her marriage to Lenny Henry, DEAR FATTY will chronicle the extraordinary, hilarious rise of a complex, dynamic and unstoppable woman.
