The life of Fanny Brice, famed comedienne and entertainer of the early 1900s. We see her rise to fame as a Ziegfeld girl, subsequent career, and her personal life, particularly her relationship with Nick Arnstein.
It's 1782 and welcome to the fabulous Palace of Versailles, France. Outside the gates, the peasants are on the verge of revolting (already well past vile), whilst inside lives one of the most hated, despised and loathed women in all of France - no, not Marie Antoinette - but Columbine, the Comtesse De Vache. Aided by her faithful maid Lisette, Columbine skulks around the palace uncovering the dark secrets of her fellow nobles, always leaving her well prepared to out-do jealous rival Madame De Plonge and her innocent yet sharp-witted daughter Eveline. Meanwhile, keeping her reputation as a classy lady is no easy chore. Whether it be a wig in the style of a 'glorious man of war, abreast in huge waves of hair' or a splendid dress to wear to a copulation, Columbine's acid-tongued courtier, Bouffant, strives the difficult task of keeping her at the forefront of French fashion.Written by

This show was hilarious, I laughed myself silly so many times, I hope this comes out on DVD.
If you like ab fabulous you will like this. It is set in France during the revolution but thats about as historical as it gets. They are both fantastic and it is such a shame that this didn't get a second series.
I love the episode where Saunders is accused of murder, and they lock her up, but of course shes innocent because she could never open all those doors. God it made me laugh.
Definitely find a copy.
