Pierre-François Martin-Laval (nicknamed "PEF") is a French actor, film director, screenwriter and theatre director. PEF is well known in France for his acting performances in musical comedy but also in serious plays. He studied at a famous French school of acting: Cours Florent. During his drama studies, he met his comrades with whom he formed a troop called 'Les Robins des Bois' (The Robinhoods), a French comedy team 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 on 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.
