Comedian, Presenter, Broadcaster & Qualified Sommelier


As one half of Merrick and Rosso, Merrick Watts took Triple J drive to ratings highs, was the first voice on the NOVA network and built a cult TV fan base with shows on Nine, Ten and the Comedy Channel.

Current Work:

As a solo performer, Merrick has carved out a new course: as an actor on The Hollowmen and Underbelly; and as a comedian, touring a solo show for the first time in 2017 with Man of the House and performing on TV shows such as Thank God You’re Here, The Project, and Hughesy We Have a Problem. He’s also been performing regularly as a panellist on Network Ten’s Studio 10.

Still a regular on radio, Merrick recently had his own drive show on Triple M Sydney throughout 2017 and he can now be heard regularly on a variety of stations across the country including regular appearances on 2GB.

Merrick started a series of stand up gigs called Grapes of Mirth in 2018 which tour a range of his stand-up comedian mates to wineries around the country for acclaimed sell out shows.

There are over 24 million people in this country and you’d be hard-pressed to find one that doesn’t know this radio veteran’s name.

Talking Points

Mixed Dozen with Merrick Watts

The Mixed Dozen is a way for people to ask Merrick about wine, comedy, showbiz, who is the most avoided person at the Logies - pretty much anything! A mix of about 12 questions from the viewers on absolutely anything they want to know. The conversation is super relaxed and can pivot from “Did you and Rosso really hire two helicopters to fly to have lunch in the Blue Mountains and then invoice Nova FM for the costs?” (The answer is YES!) to “What is the difference between Pinot Gris and Pinot Grigio?”
