Merrick Watts's Biography
Merrick Watts first came to Australia’s attention as one half of Merrick and Rosso, as part of the Triple J Drive show with Tim Ross. Merrick and Rosso built a cult fan base with sold out live shows across Australia and TV series’ on Ten, Nine and the Comedy Channel.
After more than 10 years broadcasting his award-winning breakfast radio show on Nova 969, Merrick made the switch to Drive with Triple M, hanging up the headphones at the end of 2017. Amongst all this, there have been numerous guest appearances in shows for all the major networks, including Thank God You’re Here, Are You Smarter Than A 5th Grader? and Rove Live. Merrick has also showed his acting chops with roles in Underbelly – Tale of Two Cities and Working Dog’s The Hollowmen.
Merrick is well recognised as a leading performer in comedy and entertainment, and has a wealth of experience in MCing corporate events, awards nights, product launches, company Christmas parties etc. He can entertain your audience as auctioneer and even get results!
To describe him as "multi-talented" is a gross understatement (at least that’s what he reckons!). He has the incredible ability to perform in any arena, big or small, and can cater his material for all audiences, including building a multi-media PowerPoint presentation chocked full of jokes, customised to suit your occasion!
In a career spanning some 13 years together, Merrick forged a successful radio career with Rosso, performed numerous sold-out, stand-up comedy shows around Australia; produced numerous television shows.
Based in Sydney but willing to travel, Merrick is also capable of not swearing at absolutely no additional cost!
