How tall is Stephen Merchant ?

Home :: Bookmark :: About  

Stephen Merchant's height is 6ft 7in (201 cm)

British actor and writer known for roles in TV series The Office and Extras. He said in an interview, "one's a short, fat guy and one's 6'7" referring to his attempts to get Hugo Boss to give him and Gervais suits for Bafta's. In the same IcBirmingham interview he talked about height issues: "... heard all the jokes. People say things like 'Did your parents put you in a grow bag?' and 'What's the weather like up there?'...I went to the bar to get a drink and a bloke sniggered 'That's a tall order!'s amazing how people feel they can make fun of your height when they never would if you were fat or disabled". In 2015 he mentioned a peril of being too tall: "I'm too tall. I am 6ft 7in, so I've been most people's height at some point in my life, and 6ft 4in is the best. You're tall, but you don't have to bend when you go through a door."

@hal I agree, I also agree that you shouldn't discriminate with people of any height, short or tall.

A 6'7" guy saying 6'4" is tall? Wow, I love this guy even more now. It proves that he's not one of those manmore jerks who thinks that every guy under 6'5" is either short or average height.

Hi Rob,
Could Stephen Merchant be 6'8" out of bed?
Also are the heights of really tall celebs(6'6" and above) in this website their afternoon or evening heights?
[Editor Rob: it's the same all round, afternoon/evening. I'm sure he'd touch 6ft 8 yes.]

Are you for real? Did you mistake that 7 for a 0 or a 1? How can a guy who's 6'7" not think he's that tall and wish he was taller? To most normal height people, like me(184cm), Stephen's a giant. I think 200cm is the start of giant range. I wish I was his height or close to it.

And I think Stephen's a legit 6'7". Maybe a strong 6'7". Like 202cm.

6'4 isn't too tall. 6'4 is solid tall . It's almost in the very tall range. 6'5 - 6'6 is the start of the very tall range. I agree with Stephen Merchant. 6'7 is too tall in real life. 6'7 is a very good height for playing basketball. For nonbasketball guys being this tall must suck.

Why are people saying this is too tall?
Stephen probably wishes he was even taller than what he is. Its a fact most people around his height do indeed wish they were taller and do not think they are that tall.

Must suck being this height, like being a 5'2 guy on the opposite end of the spectrum. Top bloke though.
Hetty says on 9/Dec/14
where do you reckon a 6'4 & 6'1 guy would end up near him? near the eyebrow/under his ear maybe?
[Editor Rob: probably above his eyebrow, his head isn't a huge size or anything for his height. A 6ft 1 man probably wouldn't look that much above his nose.]

Definitely 6'7 (looks a bit like he was supposed to be 6'3 or 6'4 but was stretched out), hence the way too tall height he has now (anything over 6'5 is too tall in my book). Though he'd make a great Plastic Man with those lanky limbs of his!

@James B

Perfect tall height is 188-193. Too bad i'm only 186cm and will probably not reach dat dere 6'2.
James B says on 11/Sep/14
Yeah he looked a weak 6'7 for sure in Modern Family. Peter Crouch could have a good 1 inch on this guy.
James B says on 1/Aug/14
Even 6'4 is still too tall. I'd say perfect tall height is 5'11-6'2

actually he doesnt look more than 9-10 inches bigger than Elton John who is 5'7 at best. so 6'6-6'7 for Merchant. and yes its too tall i agree with him.
person says on 25/Apr/14
stephen merchant looks taller than he actually is because i thought he was around 6'9-6'10 but when me and my mates met him in london and i'm legitimately 6'8; i was startled and perplexed to find out that i had around half an inch to an inch over him. 6'7-6'7.5 for stevie boy.
django says on 28/Mar/14
I know what he says about his height, that's not too reliable when you're too tall though innit
Editor says on 21/Nov/13
He said recently "Being 6ft 7in is too tall. 6ft 4in is much better"
Hypado says on 20/Nov/13
I must say he looks taller than 6'7"

John says on 18/Nov/13
Been watching "Hello Girls" and I must say he looks taller than 6'7".
Aerocobbler says on 26/Jun/13
Easy,easy,easy 6'7. I would have thought closer to or 6'8. I saw his standup show and he looked gigantic.
Fei says on 24/Jan/13
Door Frame comment from below - if its an American movie, remember that US doorframes are 6'8", not 2m.
cansen79 says on 4/Jan/13
I think he's more than 6'7. I know that he's quite skinny and that adds a bit to it, but still 201cm is not too tall. I honestly believe that he's at least a strong 6'8

I think he might be 6'6ish actually. 6'7 out of bed. Has 6 inches on pilkington who i don't think is taller than 6'.
somedude says on 30/Sep/12
he is tall but he is built like peter crouch i think. how much do you guys reckon he weighs??
EB says on 8/Aug/12
I seriously thought he would have been about 5'11" because he is always sitting next to Ricky and he looks so thin and weedy. When I heard 6'7" I was literally like "Holy F***!"
