Summary: French and Saunders, the world-class comedy duo, have been around now for nearly 20 years entertaining us through the box in the corner. French and Saunders are famous for many takes/spoofs; but most notably the world famous comedy show Absolutely Fabulous, which started in the late 80s, early 90s as a small sketch of a modern mother and daughter. For the first four series they were joined by the spoof middle-of-the-road comedy cabaret duo Raw Sex (Rivron and Brint), who also supported in the sketches. In the 1996 series the duo returned to our screens for more hilarious takes of Baywatch, Braveheart and the singer Bjork. After many years without a series French and Saunders returned in the fall of 2004 for a 6th series of the smash hit comedy.
