 Jeremy Dyson

Jeremy Dyson is one of the UK’s most successful screenwriters and, with Mark Gatiss, Steve Pemberton and Reece Shearsmith, makes up The League of Gentlemen.

Jeremy Dyson was born in Leeds. He studied Philosophy at Leeds University and later completed an MA in screenwriting at the Northern School of Film and Television. He is one of the award-winning comedy team The League of Gentlemen and now lives in Highbury, North London.

He is currently writing his first full length novel Still which is due to be published in 2006. He has written several books including Bright Darkness: Lost Art of the Supernatural Horror Film, a non fiction guide to horror films, and a book of short stories entitled Never Trust a Rabbit. He also plays keyboards in a pop band, called Rudolph Rocker.

He has co-created (with Simon Ashdown) the television series Funland, set to air on BBC 3.

Due to his self-confessed lack of acting skills and a rather camera-shy nature, he does not appear in the The League of Gentlemen televison series or any of its off-shoots, apart from very brief cameos. He works as the assistant producer instead. In the film adaptation he is played by Michael Sheen although Dyson appears in the background of a few scenes.
