From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Steve Bendelack is a British film and television director, who has worked primarily on a range of highly-acclaimed comedy programmes. Originally an assistant to Peter Fluck and Roger Law on satirical TV puppet show Spitting Image, he went on to direct the show in later years. He also directed The Mary Whitehouse Experience, The Royle Family, The League of Gentlemen, Dark Ages, Randall and Hopkirk (Deceased), Cowards and the first season of Little Britain. He also directed the BBC3 pilot for The Mighty Boosh, in 2003, but was replaced by Paul King for the series proper. He also produced the opening scene for the 1990s edition of Whose Line Is It Anyway? for a short period, but stopped midway through the series. He has now directed two feature films; 2005's The League of Gentlemen's Apocalypse, and the second Mr. Bean film Mr. Bean's Holiday, which was released in the UK in March 2007.
