An Audience with Karen Dunbar

Saturday 6 April, 2024

Karen Dunbar is a Scottish comedian, actress and writer.

Her rise to fame came when she appeared on television on the BBC series Chewin’ the Fat, and was subsequently given her own show by the channel, The Karen Dunbar Show. Karen became one of main stars of Chewin’ the Fat, which included a array of hilarious off beat characters.

Chewin’ the Fat first started as a radio series on BBC Radio Scotland. The later television show, which ran for four series, was first broadcast on BBC One Scotland, but series three and four, as well as highlights from the first two series, were later broadcast nationally across the United Kingdom which turned Karen into a household name.

Although the last series ended in February 2002, a Hogmanay special was broadcast each New Year’s Eve between 2000 and 2005. Chewin’ the Fat gave rise to the successful, and cult spin-off show Still Game, a sitcom focusing on the two elderly friends, Jack and Victor.
