Introduction 

As of November 2022, Stephen Merchant’s net worth is approximately $40 Million.

Stephen Merchant is an English writer, director, radio presenter, comedian, and actor from Bristol.

In collaboration with Ricky Gervais, he was the co-writer and co-director of the British sitcom ‘The Office’, and co-writer and co-star of both ‘Extras’ and ‘Life’s Too Short’. 

 

Early Life 

Stephen James Merchant was born on the 24th of November, 1974, in 1974 in Hanham, Bristol. Merchant is the son of nursery nurse Jane Elaine and plumber and builder Ronald John Merchant.

Merchant was a former film reviewer on the student radio station Radio Warwick, where he began his broadcasting career.

 

Career

Merchant began his career performing stand-up comedy at Bristol’s Comedy Box, where, he recalls, “The first week I did really well. The second week I died on my arse. I realized that stand-up was not that easy after all.”

He met Ricky Gervais for the first time in 1997, when Gervais (in the position Head of Speech at the London radio station XFM London), hired Merchant as his assistant. Gervais later said that he had called Merchant for an interview because it was the first CV handed to him. 

In mid-2001, BBC Two aired the first series of ‘The Office’, co-written and co-directed by Merchant and Gervais and starring the latter as paper sales office manager David Brent; the show initially received low ratings. Beginning in September 2001, Merchant and Gervais returned to XFM as co-hosts of ‘The Ricky Gervais Show’.

In 2007, he began hosting his own radio show on BBC 6 Music, airing weekly on Sunday afternoons. Instead of comedy, The Steve Show focused on music and particularly “new music”, defined by Merchant as “music you’ve not heard before.” 

As of November 2022, Stephen Merchant’s net worth is $40 Million.

Favorite Quotes from Stephen Merchant 

“You can only be embarrassed if you allow yourself to be embarrassed. If you embrace it and just accept that you’re kind of a klutz, and you’re able to make it into comedy gold.” – Stephen Merchant

“My twitter fans are all pretty weird. A lot of them are kind of weirdly sexually aggressive. Some of them made me laugh and then I instantly tried to forget them because I’d hate to find myself in a bar kind of drunk and accidentally use one.” – Stephen Merchant

“Even here in California with more contemporary buildings. I have a real problem with low doorframes. It’s a curse! That’s just another of the many problems I have to live with.” – Stephen Merchant

“When I get hired as an actor as opposed to a writer, one of the things that are exciting for me is doing stuff I wouldn’t normally do myself. So whether it’s a kid’s movie or a voice in animation or in this case – where I just get to be silly, it’s a different kind of comedy for me. As a performer, it’s a different pleasure than when you’re writing or directing. As a performer, you’re just in the hands of the director and you go with whatever they want to do.” – Stephen Merchant

“The reason I keep talking about a wife and saying the word wife on stage is because it seems a funny word to me. The more you say it, the more it seems to detach from that person and become this sort of abstract thing: that you would set out to find a wife, that it would be an objective like buying a new car.” – Stephen Merchant
