Late on "The Free Beer & Hot Wings Morning Show" today, we talked to writer, director, radio guy, comedian and actor Stephen Merchant.

Merchant, along with Ricky Gervais, created the British TV series "The Office," which then inspired the American version of the show.

He called in to promote "Hello Ladies," which premieres Nov. 22 at 10 p.m. on HBO. However, we ended up talking about a variety of topics, including his collaboration with Gervais, working in radio and his awkwardness in general.

Stephen was a great guest. If you missed it, you can listen to the interview below!
