The League Of Gentlemen Live Again!: The League Of Gentlemen
The League of Gentlemen will return to the stage in 2018 for their first UK tour in over 12 years with their brand new live show ‘The League of Gentlemen Live Again!’.
The tour will see BAFTA Award winning comedy legends Reece Shearsmith, Steve Pemberton, Mark Gatiss and Jeremy Dyson bring their dark and unhinged fictional village of Royston Vasey to theatres and arenas across the country.
The critically acclaimed black comedy which originally ran from 1999 – 2002 on BBC Two, also returns to our television screens this Christmas to celebrate 20 years since the show began with three special episodes on 18th, 19th and 20th December 2017.
Reece Shearsmith, Steve Pemberton, Mark Gatiss and Jeremy Dyson said: 'The League of Gentlemen started as a live show over 20 years ago and in many ways performing in front of an audience gives us the biggest thrill of all. We’re overjoyed to be taking the citizens of Royston Vasey on a road-trip and can’t wait to see all the wonderful local places in our increasingly local country. Plus we’d already gone to the trouble of getting the costumes and learning the voices again for the TV show so we thought why not? Something to do isn’t it?”'
Tubbs Tattsyrup added: 'I’m so eccited to take my preshus things on tour agen I did a little brown fish! Do wee go to Swansea?'
Set in the dark and twisted town of Royston Vasey - populated by freaks, sadists and the odd inbred couple - all the main roles are played by just three men.
The League Of Gentlemen started out as a live show over 20 years ago before it became a cult hit first on Radio 4 then on BBC2 for three series. Three new specials were filmed for the BBC's Christmas 2017 schedule and from there the writers and performers Reece Shearsmith, Steve Pemberton, Mark Gatiss decided to reunite and take the show on the road again. If you're local, or even if you're not, you're very welcome into their world. And don't forget to bring your own pen, Pauline won't let you keep hers.
