Character from The League of Gentlemen (Series 2), played by Reece Shearsmith. A mysterious individual who travels with 'Mama' Lazarou, 3 dwarves and a 7ft Scottish giant among others - Papa Lazarou's Pandemonium Carnival. Origin unknown (possibly French?), has a black face (painted, like a minstrel) and gravelly voice. Operates under the facade of a circus owner/door-to-door peg salesman but what he really does is "collect" (ie. steal) peoples wives - exact number unknown but thought to be in the hundreds. Often speaks in gibberish and sometimes disguises himself as "Keith" (Series 3) - who would strike most as being somewhat homosexual. Will ask for your wedding ring and if you give it to him, your fate is sealed! He will tell you "You're my wife now!" before sticking you in a cage with his other "wives" where you will be hosed down by the dwarves

he comes to your house and asks if you want to buy his pegs. he will then ask if daves there. when told there is no dave living there, he asks again. he then brings out mama lazarou and demands she uses your toilet. he will then tell you your toilet is broken but not to worry, hes fixed it. this is all, however, a lie and is just a ploy to steal your wedding ring and throw you in his circus as his "wife".
he even does it at christmas where he dresses up as a rather strange looking santa.
PApa lAzArOu iS cool.
"MY WIFE SAID UR TOILET WAS BROOKE BUT DONT WORRY I FIIIXED IT"
"ALLO DAAAVE?"
"WANT TO BUY SOME PEGS"
