The little-seen member of The League of Gentlemen ...


The 'reclusive' co-writer of The League of Gentlemen, Jeremy Dyson met Mark Gatiss, Reece Shearsmith and Steve Pemberton while studying for a Philosophy degree at Leeds University.

Starting out on the London Fringe, the quartet played at the Edinburgh Festival in 1996 and, when they returned the following year, won the Perrier Award and were signed by the BBC.

Introduced to a wider audience when the award-winning On The Town With The League Of Gentlemen aired on Radio 4, the bizarre inhabitants of Royston Vasey arrived on television in 1999, winning an RTS award, BAFTA and the Golden Rose of Montreux for Best Entertainment.

While the other members relish portraying the freakish characters, except for the odd cameo role Jeremy Dyson stays behind the camera, co-writing the show and, since the second series, taking on the role of assistant producer.

Outside of The League of Gentlemen, Jeremy has co-written an episode of Randall and Hopkirk (Deceased) with Mark Gatiss, and written and directed the short film The Cicerones. Writing fiction since 1987, his books include the short story collection Never Trust a Rabbit, Darkness Bright and The Essex Files, co-written with Mark Gatiss.

A keen musician, Jeremy plays with the band Rudolph Rocker, described by the NME as "so good we missed the last bus home," and recently joined Joby Talbot of The Divine Comedy for the musical ghost story, The Same Dog, at London's Barbican Concert Hall.
