Ricky Gervais' brilliant comedy partner. Responsible for co-writing 'The Office' and 'Extras'. Often, this man's name is misspelled (see Steven Merchant). Common elements of his comedy include (but are not limited to) a quick, quirky, but good natured wit and endearingly self-deprecating anecdotes about his 'trouble with the ladies'.

More fun factoids:
•He is 6' 7"
•Wears thick, black frame glasses.
•Appeared in Season 2 of the Office (episode 4) as Gareth's friend 'Oggy'.
•Plays Ricky Gervais' awkward agent in the show 'Extras'.
•Has recently acquired a modest following of female admirers.

Girl #1: Did you see that piece of ass who just passed us?

Girl #2: Yeah, he's alright. I mean, he's no Stephen Merchant or nothin'.
