The start of the League of Gentlemen can be traced back to when Reece, Steve, Mark and Jeremy first met at college. They hit it off straight away and have been writing and performing their hugely successful black comedies ever since.
The first chance they had to display their unique style of humour came in 1996 where they performed in a number of shows at the Canal Cafe Theatre. This led them to the Edinburgh Festival where they won a Perrier award. In 1998 they poured their talents into radio and subsequently picked up a Sony Silver award for their show on Radio 4 called ‘On the Town with the League of Gentlemen’. Finally, a year later, they broke into TV with the League of Gentlemen. Its fictional village Royston Vasey has been populated with 60 of the oddest most deranged characters from the minds of their creators. But perhaps more worrying is the fact that most of these characters came from ‘real’ people.
