Pierre-François Martin-Laval (nicknamed "PEF") is a French actor, born in Marseille. Well appreciated in France for his acting performance in burlesque show but also in touching plays, PEF is nowadays a recognized actor in his country. Theatre lover from ever, he incorporated a famous French school of acting: Cours Florent. During his drama studies, he met his comrades with whom he formed the troop: 'Les Robins des Bois' (The Robinhoods), a French humoristic troop formed in 1996. Initially called The Royal Imperial Green Rabbit Company, they renamed themselves after their first real success, a play titled: Robins des bois.

Les Robins des Bois first appeared on television in 'La Grosse Emission', a regular TV show of the channel Comédie!. In this show they used to present short and utterly crazy plays. They quickly got popular and made appearances in French movies.
