Original Review:Blackburn-born Steve Pemberton is a quarter of The League Of Gentlemen alongside Mark Gatiss, Reece Shearsmith and Jeremy Dyson (who writes, but does not perform)
They net at Bretton Hall drama school in their late teens, and began performing a sketch show at London’s Cockpit Theatre in 1995, soon afterwards landing a residency at the Canal Café pub theatre, which compelled them to create new material at a fast pace.
In 1997 they won the Perrier, and their subsequent radio series On the Town with The League of Gentlemen, set in the fictional town of Spent, won a Sony Award.
In 1999 the League moved to television – and Royston Vasey – with subsequent series in 2000 (including a typically sinister Christnmas special) and 2002; plus a feature-length film, The League of Gentlemen's Apocalypse, in 2005.
On stage, they toured large regional theatres in 2000, had a six-week run at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane in spring 2003, and toured a pantomime-themed show The League of Gentlemen Are Behind You in 2005.
Outside of the League, Pemberton has appeared in Shameless, a 2004 adaptation of Death On The Nile, and the revival of Randall & Hopkirk (Deceased), as well as the West End play Art in 2003, alongside his League Of Gentlemen costars.
Great to hear he's writing a few Benidorms. We found the last series lacked a bit of oomph. I hope everybody doesn't die at the end though. I'm sure it will be quite difficult for him to resist the need to include decapitations, poisonings and other macabre goings on. I'd still watch it though...nothing like a good bit of gruesomeness...especially then your far away from home, in another country, with nobody around to help. Hmmmm. Scrap what I said. Yes...let's murder them all!! Wahay!
