Jennifer Saunders is a comedian, writer and acress. She has won three BAFTAs, an international Emmy, a British Comedy Award, a Rose d'Or, two Writers' Guild Awards and a People's Choice Award. She first found widespread attention in the 1980s when she formed The Comic Strip after graduating from the Central School of Speech and Drama. With Dawn French, she wrote and starred in French & Saunders, the long-running hit sketch show. She won worldwide acclaim in the 1990s for writing Absolutely Fabulous, playing Edina Monsoon.
She's been in two of the most popular double acts in TV history. As the Saunders one out of French and Saunders, she gave the world one of its longest-lasting, most-loved comedy partnerships. And in Ab Fab's Eddie and Patsy she created two hilarious monsters we've taken to our hearts. Bonkers is the story of how it all came about. Or at least the bits she recalls. The rest she made up. Either way, it's all here- the stories, the characters, Dawn, Joanna, and, playing herself throughout- Jennifer. 'If only all celebrity biographies were this funny.' Daily Telegraph, Books of the Year 'Hilarious and brilliant.' Kirsty Young, BBC Radio 4 'Delightfully funny . . . she writes with moving honesty.' Hello!
