Are you inspired by the current generation of British comedians?

Ladies, wouldn't you agree that female comedians make us smile, laugh, giggle and bring us confidence?

Well, there has been an exciting update that we would like to share with you! The 1990s comedy sitcom 'Absolutely Fabulous' is returning to our screens later this year! Excited?

Another one of my favourite comedians is Miranda Hart. She tackles the meaning of relationship problems, self confidence and friendship presented in a happy, positive way.

And the girl power continues! On to the second comedian, ladies you may have heard the term 'Am I bothered' before, yes it comes from the classic Catherine Tate who is well known for portraying multiple characters in the 'Catherine Tate show' including a stubborn yet clever school girl, a portrayal of a grandma who loves to laugh and a very hyperactive waiter!

Catherine Tate also made her debut as a comedian and actress in the fabulous 'Doctor Who' portraying Donna!

And finally another one of my favourite comedian Sarah Millican, who rose to fame with her comedy tour 'Throughly Modern Millican'. Her comedy shows are truly very funny and she certainly has a way of connecting with her audiences!

Take a look at one of her great performances in the 'Michael McIntyre comedy roadshow' live in Manchester.

Recent research has emphasised the fact that there are not enough female comedians out there to keep the comedy shows and sitcoms running. What do you think? Did 'Absolutely Fabulous' inspire the current generation to create their own sitcoms?

Do you feel inspired by female comedians and who is your favourite?
