The League of Gentlemen TV Series Collection Audiobook

The League of Gentlemen TV Series Collection

Mark Gatiss, Steve Pemberton and Reece Shearsmith star in a compilation from the smash hit BBC TV series 'This is a local shop for local people. There's nothing for you here!' Welcome to Royston Vasey! Your visit coincides with: - Herr Lipp's German exchange visit! - Papa Lazarou's freak show! - A nosebleed epidemic! In a selection of episodes from Series Two of the award-winning black comedy, Reenie and Vinnie are in charge of the charity shop, Tubbs and Edward are looking to fins a 'no-tail' mate for son David, and friendly butcher Hilary Briss is holding a soiree for patrons of his 'special stuff'. In Series Three, Pauline is released from HMP Clitclink and harbours dreams of running her own pen shop, joke peddlar Lance regrets dabbling in the murky world of illegal body parts, and Geoff travels to London to become a stand-up comedian. So welcome to town. You'll never leave. Note: You may be wondering why we have not included episodes from Series One of the TV series in this collection. This is because many of the sketches that formed the basis of the first TV series are published in The League of Gentlemen's original BBC Radio series, On the Town with the League of Gentlemen. Although they were reworked a little for television, the Series One audio of these sketches is similar enough to their radio counterparts that we have not included them in this TV series compilation.

On the Town With The League Of Gentlemen Audiobook

On the Town With The League Of Gentlemen

Author: Jeremy Dyson, Mark Gatiss Narrator: Mark Gatiss, Reece Shearsmith, Steve Pemberton Release Date: December 2004

The winners of the 1997 Perrier Comedy Award at the Edinburgh Fringe in their first Sony Award-winning radio series. 'Cruelly intelligent, deeply hilarious, unmissably good' - Glasgow Herald. Welcome to Spent - an isolated and rather odd town somewhere in the North. Its singular inhabitants lead blackly comic lives, from Dr Chinnery, the lethally incompetent vet and Pauline, the monstrous Restart Officer at the Job Centre, to the hideously exacting Dentons who impose their disturbing habits and pet toads upon their visiting nephew Ben. These and other memorable townsfolk are ferried around by Barbara, a taxi driver half way through his sex change, and served by Mr Iingleby, who brings a whole new meaning to the term 'small shopkeeper'. Murderously funny and acutely observed, ‘The League of Gentlemen's’ highly acclaimed brand of comedy shows human nature at its most extreme - and most hilarious.
