Welcome, welcome, and once more, welcome, to episode 255 of the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip! Heavyweight comic realness this week, as Pip is joined by cast iron champ STEPHEN MERCHANT!
“…you realise you’re sort of somewhere between Rocky and A Star Is Born”
An absolute legend right here, in not only TV, stage and film but the good old Wild West days of podcasting! A solid in-depth chat with Stephen, covering his illustrious career from those early days of his arch-character in standup comedy (which divided audiences down the middle) and his his return to the stage later down the road, the genesis of the undisputed TV classic ‘The Office’ and its evolution in the US (and being able to watch it objectively at last), right up to being holed up in off-track US locations with Richard E Grant, as well as his current position behind the camera as director of the wrestling biopic ’Fighting With My Family’! How much more besides? So much… Many perspectives and insights and straight up wisdom dropped in this powerful podcast, so set aside some time and ENJOY!
