Product Description

Product Description

Jennifer Saunders is Britain’s best-loved comedienne, screenwriter and actress. For the first time, author Jacky Hyams reveals the story behind Jennifer’s rise to fame, her successful career as the Queen of Comedy and the highs and lows of her remarkable life. Born in 1958 in Sleaford, Jennifer’s mother was a biology teacher and her father was a pilot in the Royal Air Force. In 1977 she attended the Central School of Speech and Drama where she met her comedy partner Dawn French. After graduating, Jennifer began her career at The Comedy Store in London, and it was during this time she was to meet comedian, actor and writer Adrian Edmondson, who she would later marry. In July 2010 Jennifer was to face her toughest challenge, after being diagnosed with breast cancer. Since her diagnosis she has made a full recovery. This is Jennifer’s full, unauthorised story.

5.0 out of 5 stars One woman i wouldnt mind meeting 29 Dec 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Have always liked and respected Jennifer Saunders.Loved her in French and Saunders, but the best is Ab Fab.......absolutely brilliant. When I read that she had breast cancer in early 2010 i couldn't believe it. Then in July 2010 i found out that i also had Breast Cancer. The way she battled the illness and her strength through it all, gave me the strength too. The book was a brilliant read and have found out alot more about her life and her path to fame.

3.0 out of 5 stars I felt it didn't read from the heart 21 Nov 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Not as good as Dawn French's, most of it was just what she said in previous interviews and quotes. I still think Jennifer is very talented and a brilliant writer/comedienne. It didn't give an insight into the real Jennifer
