Stephen Merchant - On His Own And Looking For A Lady (EXCLUSIVE CLIP)

Stephen Merchant is a busy man. When he's not editing his new mockumentary Life's Too Short, co-written with his usual partner in crime Ricky Gervais and starring Warwick Davis, he's been performing in a country-wide stand-up tour, which he's also taking to New York.

Merchant, on his own on stage, lets loose on the pitfalls of being a very tall, single, famous man. The persona he creates is a complex combination of desperation but also ill-disguised misogyny.
