Stephen Merchant began his career as a stand-up comedian and was a finalist in the 1998 Daily Telegraph New Comedy Awards. He is now an accomplished writer, actor and director with credits in television, film and radio.

On the small screen, Merchant has teamed up with Ricky Gervais to write and direct award-winning BBC programming, including "The Office" and "Extras," the latter also airing on HBO. "The Office" earned three BAFTAS, three British Comedy Awards and two "Golden Globes," plus an Emmy for the U.S. format. "Extras," in which Merchant also co-starred, garnered Merchant a Best Actor British Comedy Award in 2006 and the Golden Globe in 2008. On the big screen, Merchant's acting credits include "Cemetery Junction," "Tooth Fairy," "Hall Pass," "The Invention of Lying" and "Hot Fuzz."

He has entered the Guinness Book of World Records alongside Gervais and Karl Pilkington for their hugely successful podcast series, subsequently animated for HBO. He is also behind several radio shows, including "The Stephen Merchant Show" for BBC 6 Music.
