For those of you who are just learning about the British comedy Absolutely Fabulous from visiting this web site, you should know that this sitcom was hillarious, totally obnoxious, outrageous and one of a kind. Of course I used the past tense above ("sitcom was hillarious") because AbFab's final episode was a brilliant full length series ending movie, "The Last Shout." With a talented cast of characters and guest appearances, AbFab's humor is best described as the misadventures of Edina and Patsy; two femme fatales who embody and exaggerate all stereotypes fitting of their materialistic careers and fixations with fashion and celebrity status.
There is a new show currently taping in Britain called "Let Them Eat Cake" starring Jennifer Saunders (Edina) and Dawn French. The show is written by a gentleman named Peter Learmouth and directly by our Patsy, Joanna Lumley. All tapings are sold out to this sitcom which is set in Versailles, France just prior to the French Revolution; Jennifer and Dawn play chambermaids. I hope we can watch it on BBC America!!! Otherwise we will probably have to wait a couple of years to view it here in the USA. Although in Britain, the show should air in the fall. I've also heard a rumor about another show Jennifer Saunders is working on which includes the cast of AbFab; set in a bar that is owned by Patsy's character. How exciting!! I'll try to keep posting news here in the future as it is made available to me...cheers!!
So, for all of the Ab Fab fans surfing the WWW, I've recorded some .wav files from all three series. I tried to eliminate the laughter from the recordings, but wasn't quite as successful with that as I would have liked; besides, I think it adds character to them. In order to download or hear these wavs you may need to "plug-in" to a or type of program. Some of these files are very large; please allow ample time for them to load. Save these .wavs, but I do ask that you e-mail me (use the film button below) or sign the Dreambook (just below the e-mail icon) and let me know about it...
