Dawn French's Girls Who Do Comedy
The star of French and Saunders and The Vicar of Dibley talks to other famous comediennes.
Dawn French delves into the strangely uncharted world of women in comedy.
From Kathy Burke to Catherine Tate, Tracy Ullman to Victoria Wood and Joan Rivers to Sandra Bernhard, Dawn meets the women behind the laughter, and finds out what makes them tick.
Ruby Wax explains how being funny at school meant you were a loser, Whoopi Goldberg admits she was more weird than funny, and Kathy Burke reveals a useful trick: the ability to fart on demand.
And Julie Walters, Catherine Tate, Linda Smith and Jessica Stephenson all agree: comedy is a great defence mechanism.
