The hilarious comedy duo are notorious for their celeb impressions, so it was only a matter of time before they targeted this famous family!
Deck the halls for comedy gold, as this Christmas viewers will be treated to French and Saunders’ 30th anniversary Christmas special, featuring a send-up of one of the world’s most famous families, the Kardashians.
In new pics released ahead of the show, Dawn French, 60, portrays Kim Kardashian with a very large bum and heavy contouring.
With a sizeable pout and paint-by-numbers make-up application, Dawn looks a dead ringer for the famous 37-year-old reality star.
Fans of French and Saunders were overjoyed when the comediennes announced the return of their legendary show for a Christmas special.
In 300 Years of French and Saunders, Dawn and Jennifer perform in a ‘Karcrashians’ sketch. Other sketches in the show will send up Gogglebox, Wonder Woman and The Handmaid’s Tale, although the duo have warned that ‘nothing is out of bounds and no-one is safe’.
We’re counting the hours until the show airs on Christmas Day at 10:35pm on BBC One.
It’s not the first time the Kardashians have been in Jennifer’s comedy firing line. For the Absolutely Fabulous 20th anniversary special, aired on Christmas Day in 2011, the character Saffy, played by Julia Sawalha, was released from prison and was clueless about who the Kardashians were. Edina and Patsy, played by Jennifer’s other comedy partner, Joanna Lumley, had to inform Saffy about the A-list family.
“There’s a new disease called the Kardashians, darling. It’s just sort of spread,” Edina says.
“Like herpes,” Patsy adds. “Each one with its own reality show. They’re multiplying like head lice.”
“Darling, look at this fat one at the end. Very soon, she will split like an amoeba and become TWO Kardashians. That looks like a boob. In fact, it’s just another Kardashian,” Edina says.
