Bonkers: My Life in Laughs by Jennifer Saunders

Bonkers: My Life in Laughs


Bonkers is no 'warts-and-all autobiography shocker' but we love Jennifer all the more for creating a thoroughly enjoyable and very funny biog without divulging the most intimate details of her private life.

There are some great anecdotes from the early days: treading the boards of the comedy circuit with Dawn French in the early '80s, joining up with the team, including husband-to-be Ade E on Comic Strip and, unsurprisingly, the hilarity on set during the making of the iconic Ab Fab with 'the five Js' (Jennifer, Joanna, June, Jane and Julia).

Jennifer visited Mumsnet in early November 2013 to tell us a bit more about the book and also shared some of the great pics which appear in her book.
