S1E49: Merrick Watts
Most people know Merrick from his long-time radio partnership with Tim Ross, who I interviewed for this show in October 2017.
Merrick and Rosso started on Triple J in 1998, moved to Nova in 2001 and ended their 11-year partnership in 2009.
During that time, they also made the TV shows “Planet Merrick and Rosso” and “The Merrick and Rosso Show” for the Comedy Channel, “Merrick and Rosso Unplanned” for Channel Nine, and “The B Team” for Channel 10.
When their partnership ended, Merrick went on to host radio shows on Triple M and 2Day Fm including “Merrick and the Highway Patrol” and “Merrick and Australia” which turned into “Merrickville”.
\As an actor, Merrick appeared as an adviser to the Prime Minister in Working Dog’s 2008 series “The Hollowmen” opposite Lachy Hulme and Rob Sitch, and Marty Johnston in 2009’s “Underbelly: The Tale of Two Cities.”
Last year, Merrick was one of three celebrities to pass “SAS Australia’s” gruelling two-week challenge – with the comedian leaving many elite athletes in his wake.
