Publisher's Summary

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 actuely observed, The League of Gentlemen's highly acclaimed brand of comedy shows human nature at its most extreme, and most hilarious.

    Story
    "Laugh-out-loud bizarre comedy genre of its own"
    If you could sum up On the Town with The League of Gentlemen in three words, what would they be?

    Expect the unexpected. A neatly segued series of sketches in the village of Spent, built into a story line, which led to the dark and hilarious TV series in Royston Vaisey - you'll not want to turn it off. Prime yourself for the side- (and other-) splitting effects of the incompetently murderous vet tending to an unwilling panda, the cockatoo with tooth ache, the swollen hamster and pregnant cow. Meet gruff Barbara the trans-gender taxi-driver. Enjoy the toad-related horrors and more of Naked Thursday - and relish the quickfire timing and puns. What other comedy team could end an episode with "Alas, hoist by my own pet-toad"? Unmissable.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The living scarecrow - but you have to listen to find out it and it's keepers dark secrets...so I'll also nominate Pauline the sadistic Job Centre Manager and her pen-friends - listen in to laugh out loud...


    Which character – as performed by the narrators – was your favourite?

    This is like asking which member of a band is the best; one can't disentangle the cogs in this comedy machine...


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Feeling Spent


    Any additional comments?

    So much better in digital than on original tape (!) - easy to rewind to rehearse the jokes! Do not read anywhere where you'll be slapped for obviously enjoying yourself too much.
