Dream Corp LLC - Early lifeEdit - Netflix
The man behind the funniest show on W963, The Steve Show, highlights of which included an inspired take-off of the IRN news (“we spoke to Gerry Adams...”), an advert for Coventry Library (“Coventry Library makes no claims to be infinite”), attempting to give away an Aerosmith video to people on the toilet in Rootes [hall of residence], telephoning the library bridge security post to ask if they had seen a lost ball, as well as a series of snippets entitled At Home with Rose and Fred West. He once suckled milk from a cow's udder. This show stood out, as it was actually genuinely good. It's only a matter of time before Steve and his posse follow in the footsteps of Newman and Baddiel.
Members of Merchant's “posse” included film critic James King, Dan Warren, Neil the Maskell, and Geraint the Welshman. Recently, a number of tapes of The Steve Show have been rediscovered and are being distributed on various Merchant fan sites.
Merchant was born in Hanham, Avon, the son of nursery nurse Jane Elaine (née Hibbs) and insurance representative Ronald John Merchant. He attended Hanham High School and later the University of Warwick in Coventry from 1993 to 1996, where he received a 2:1 Bachelor of Arts degree in Film and Literature. Merchant was a former film reviewer on the student radio station Radio Warwick, where he began his broadcasting career.
