Stephen Merchant

Writer, director and actor are all titles that have been applied to Stephen Merchant in the past few years and now he adds stand-up comic to the list when he brings his first ever tour to Derby’s Assembly Rooms on Monday, October 31, from 7.30pm.

The award-winning co–creator of The Office and Extras embarks on his first stand–up tour, titled Hello Ladies.

Stephen Merchant said: “Most people don’t realise that I was a comedian before I met Ricky Gervais and his coat-tails. Life can be lonely as a TV writer so this tour is a great opportunity for me to get out there and meet my fans. And make at least one of them my wife.”

Hello Ladies is suitable for those aged 16 and over.

Tickets to see Stephen Merchant in stand-up action are £25 and are available by calling the box office on 01332 255800.
