Description
"Far more outlandish, far more deranged than nature ever intended comedy to be," (NYTimes), this surrealistic series—winner of the Perrier Award (1997), the Golden Rose of Montreux (1999), and the BAFTA Award for Best Comedy Series (2000)—is the handiwork of three young comedians known collectively as the League of Gentlemen. Their interweaving narrative about life in the remote town of Royston Vasey chronicles the antics of such diverse characters as a transsexual taxi driver, a family obsessed with hygiene and toads, a fiery reverend, a carnival owner who kidnaps women into marriage, and a xenophobic couple who run a local shop for local people.

During the first season of the program, originally broadcast in 1999, the citizens of Royston Vasey learn that a new road is coming through town—good news for everyone except for Edward and Tubbs, the disturbing proprietors of The Local Shop. The Dentons mourn the passing of Uncle Harvey's beloved toads, Sonny and Cher. Legz Akimbo, a theater-in-education group, pays the local school an eye-opening visit, and Operation Day finally arrives for transsexual cabdriver Babs.
