Description - The "League of Gentlemen"'s Book of Precious Things by League of Gentlemen
"The League of Gentlemen" have been making audiences laugh for years, but what makes them tick and what is behind their dark, twisted humour? In this book, all four members have assembled a stunning collection of prose, poetry, sketches, lyrics and classic film scenes to create a very special "Book of Precious Things". "The League of Gentlemen" was critically acclaimed when the first series was shown on BBC2 in 1999. Already known from their radio show "On The Town...," the League were much discussed, with their unique mixture of very black comedy and harrowing social observation set in the fictional town of Royston Vasey. With a mind-blowing mixture of influences from "Hammer Horror", "Carry On" and Martin Amis to Monty Python, Shakespeare and Victoria Wood, the League are utterly unique and more than a little disturbing!
