British Comedy Society / Dead Comics Society

Originated in the front room of John Gatenbys' family home in Highgate, during a discussion concerning Peter Seller's nearby childhood home. Out of this the 'Dead Comics Society' was born and their first plaque was for Sellers. 1995 the name was changed to 'British Comedy Society'. At one point we thought the organisation had merged with the Heritage Foundation but that seems not to be the case. Our information comes from the BCS website.
