Friday Frivolity: Comediennes

Friday Frivolity

I've really been looking forward to this week's theme - female comedians - because there are just so many funny women I'd love to showcase. After much deliberation I've settled on four, in no particular order:

Katy Brand
It's not secret that one of my favourite types of comedy is the song parody, and this is something Katy Brand really excels at. I particularly love her take on Usher - Love in this Pub - and this ode to Coldplay:

Dawn French
I caught a couple of episodes of Vicar of Dibley on Gold the other day which reminded me just how great Dawn French is. She has that whole 'only (relatively) sane person in the village' vibe down to perfection.

Vicar of Dibley

Gracie Fields
We're going back to the days of music hall for this one, but Gracie Fields was awesome. Again, she was a master of the comedy song - my favourites are Why Did She Fall for the Leader of the Band? and the classic What Can You Give A Nudist For His Birthday?

Jo Brand
Brand got her break in stand-up as part of the alternative comedy scene of the 80s, and in recent years has been one of  the only regular female guests on panel shows like QI and Have I Got News For You. I just love her deadpan delivery!

Now on to the link-up! :D
