In an exclusive show for Forces Radio BFBS originally broadcast in 2016, comedian Stephen Merchant chats to Jason Webster about his career on stage and on both sides of the camera.
Listen to the full chat with Stephen here.
The multi-talented writer, actor, director, and comedian, shares anecdotes about TV shows 'The Office' and 'Extras', his sold-out stand-up gigs, his movie, 'Hello Ladies' and that outrageous Lip Sync Battle performance.
Stephen jokes about subjects away from his working life, such as his attitude to exercise:
“I’ve worked out with ex-forces gentleman and they are tough, they don’t take any prisoners… now exercise is a part of my life and I’m quite surprised.”
And that awkward moment where his height makes him feel like “a teacher at a school disco” while dancing in nightclubs.
