Watch This Session

The League of Gentlemen have created some of Britain’s most original and distinctive comedy in recent years.

In this session Reece Shearsmith and Steve Pemberton reveal the way their writing has evolved from their early days performing sketch comedy at the Edinburgh fringe to the huge success of The League of Gentlemen and Psychoville on radio and television, and the different creative processes behind sketches, self-contained stories for a series, and longer narrative arcs.

Reece and Steve will also give you the inside story on their latest collaboration, Inside No. 9, an innovative multi-platform project that promises to be yet another imaginative new departure.
