Stephen Merchant Height

"Even here in California with more contemporary buildings. I have a real problem with the low doorframes. It's a curse! That's just another of the many problems I have to live with."

~ Stephen Merchant

English comedian, writer, director and actor, Stephen Merchant is known for co-writing and co-directing the British TV comedy series The Office, Extras, and Life's Too Short.

Stephen Merchant is what you call uncomfortably tall. He has tall enough to have to be careful when entering doors so he doesn't bang his head on the frame.

He is tall enough to make The Rock look short, who is around 6-feet-3 inches tall, and he is tall enough to make a 6-feet-4 inches tall guy like Conan O'Brien look short.

Anyway, Mr. Merchant has mentioned his height as 6-feet-7 inches in the past and he looks like it -- from whatever angle you care to look at him. He looks a complete foot taller than Ricky Gervais (slightly above 5'7") for sure.

The real height of Stephen Merchant is

6'7" or 201 cm

"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."
