Jennifer Saunders biography (bio):
Jennifer Jane Saunders is a BAFTA Award-winning English comedienne, actress, and comedy writer. Along with her comedy partner Dawn French, she is best known for starring in their sketch show French & Saunders and for writing and starring in the popular sitcom Absolutely Fabulous where she played the lead role of Eddy Monsoon.

Early years:
Saunders was born in Sleaford, Lincolnshire of French and English heritage, in 1958. Her mother an English teacher and her father an RAF Air Marshal. She was educated from the age of 5 to 18 in boarding schools, mainly at Northwich County Grammar School for Girls on Granville Road in Leftwich (now the County High School Leftwich). Her mother was a teacher in Northwich. After school, she worked for a year in Italy as an au pair. Saunders later received a place at the Central School of Speech and Drama in London on a drama teachers course in 1977, where she met her future comedy partner, Dawn French, and as far as Saunders was concerned, French was a cocky little upstart. The animosity was mutual; French considered Saunders snooty and aloof. At college, they shared a flat together. Both came from RAF backgrounds, having been on some bases at the same time, even sharing the same best friend although not meeting. Saunders' father was an officer, unlike French's. The two performed together after graduation, working the festival, cabaret, and stand-up circuits. She also briefly shared a flat in London with Emma Thompson.
Dawn's and Jennifer's double-act personae had been created and honed on stage, playing the London clubs and fringe cabaret venues in the late 1970s and early 1980s. What brought them ultimate success was when they answered a 1980 advert in The Stage newspaper for female artistes to become part of the unknown The Comic Strip Presents. At this time, French had become a drama teacher, but Saunders had not managed to get that far. The group performed at Soho's Raymond Review Bar with regulars such as Jack Nicholson and Robin Williams. From this success, they were given a contract by Channel 4 for six pilot episodes. Subsequent acting appearances as part of the sitcoms Girls on Top and Happy Families had added further strings to their bows. The women had a firm idea on the type of show they wanted to make and wrote the sketches themselves, which resulted in a quirky mixture of satire, slapstick, sparky impressionism, and other kinds of skits from a female perspective, the sum total successfully managing to bridge the gap between the new wave and the mainstream. For the first four series they were joined by the spoof middle-of-the-road comedy cabaret duo, Raw Sex, (Rowland Rivron and Simon Brint), who also supported in the sketches.

The Comic Strip:
Both Saunders and French were founding and ongoing members of the informal comedy collective The Comic Strip, along with many of the comedians who were to become their generation's most well-known comedy performers including Peter Richardson, Rik Mayall, and Robbie Coltrane, as well as Saunders' future long-term partner Adrian Edmondson.
Saunders' first exposure to a wider audience occurred when comedy producer Martin Lewis recorded a Comic Strip record album in Spring 1981 and featured skits by French & Saunders. The album was released on Springtime!/Island Records in September 1981. The album was the first recording to feature Saunders and presented her and comedic partner Dawn French to an audience outside London.
Julien Temple who had previously directed a film about infamous punk legends The Sex Pistols featured French and Saunders among other Comic Strip cast members in a little-seen short comedic film. When the The Comic Strip became a programme, it was sold to Channel 4. In the episodes "Bad News" and "More Bad News," Saunders plays a trashy rock journalist touring with the fictional heavy metal band, Bad News.
Saunders starred with her husband Adrian Edmondson in a Comic Strip film called, The Supergrass, a little-known parody of slick '80s police dramas directed by Peter Richardson. Saunders also appeared twice as guest in The Young Ones, in which Rik Mayall and Adrian Edmondson were two of the main stars.
In 1985, Saunders appeared as all four Fuddle sisters in the six episode BBC situation comedy, Happy Families, written by Ben Elton (cowriter of The Young Ones) and starring Edmonson as her brother Guy Fuddle, who needs to reunite the family for the sake of their dying grandmother, also played by Saunders. Dawn French, Stephen Fry, and Chris Langham also appeared.

French & Saunders and Absolutely Fabulous:
She and French created French & Saunders, a popular sketch comedy show for the BBC, which still runs sporadically to this day.
Saunders' biggest solo success, Absolutely Fabulous, was in fact based largely on a French & Saunders sketch called "Modern Mother and Daughter". She came to international attention for Absolutely Fabulous, which she created, wrote, and starred in as the irresponsible and impossible Edina Monsoon. The show ran for five full seasons over the course of about fifteen years, and there have also been one two-part movie and three special episodes.

Other work:
Saunders has later and recently been working on two new series, Jam and Jerusalem, about a Women's Institute, and The Life and Times of Vivienne Vyle about a neurotic talk show host. Jam and Jerusalem started airing on BBC1 on 24 November 2006, and is now airing on BBC America in the United States as Clatterford, and The Vivienne Vyle Show was filmed as a pilot, and is currently being filmed for a full series due in 2007 on BBC Two. She is also currently getting ready for the French and Saunders Farewell Tour as well a six-part series marking the twentieth anniversary of the sketch comedy series.
Saunders has appeared in the Amnesty International The Secret Policeman's Biggest Ball live benefit in 1989, along with Dawn French and others. She co-directed the show with one of her comedy heroes John Cleese. She has also appeared on the US-made sitcoms Roseanne and Friends. In the Friends episode, she played the step-mother of Emily, Ross Geller's fianc. Her character, Andrea Waltham, was not excited about the celebration where she and her husband tried to get as much money out of the in-laws as possible.
In film, Saunders appeared in the Spice Girls' movie Spiceworld (1997). The Spice Girls returned the favour to her by appearing on French and Saunders, and Emma Bunton (formerly Baby Spice) had a recurring role as herself on the fifth season of Absolutely Fabulous. She also appeared in the DreamWorks animated movie, Shrek 2 (2004), where she voiced Princess Fiona's evil Fairy Godmother and performed the song Holding Out for a Hero during the film. She has also appeared in an Alison Moyet music video.

Personal life:
Saunders lives with fellow comedian Adrian Edmondson who she married on May 11 1985, and with whom she has three daughters: Eleanor "Ella" (born 22 January 1986), Beatrice (born 19 June 1987), and Freya (born 16 October 1990). Saunders fell pregnant with her first child shortly before making her relationship with Edmondson official. The couple have remained infamously quiet, and rarely partake in interviews due to their shared desire for maximum privacy.
She briefly dated Depeche Mode keyboardist Andrew Fletcher in the later 1970s, and when she was younger, she had a crush on Marc Bolan. She currently has a 1.5 million home in Holland Park and a 400 year old farm house, with 45 acres of land in Chagford, Devon.
In May 2007, both Saunders and Edmondson received honorary Doctor of Letters degrees, from the University of Exeter.
