The Bristol-based comedian, 46, is known for co-writing and co-directing the BBC sitcom, “The Office”. The comedian made the program with Ricky Gervais, who also starred on the series as office manager David Brent. The couple continued to work together on other comedies, including “Extras” and “Life is Too Short”. They also teamed up for “The Ricky Gervais Show,” one of the first mainstream podcasts, which then aired on Channel 4.
Since then, Stephen has also seen success on his own, most notably in the new BBC comedy thriller “The Offenders”.
The show follows the lives of seven foreigners who renovate an abandoned building in Bristol as part of their community service.
Stephen co-wrote and starred in the six-part film, which also stars legendary American actor Christopher Walken.
The offenders come across BBC One at 9 p.m. and BBC Iplayer on Monday.
Filming for the show resumed earlier this month and finally wrapped up this week.

Filming began in March 2020, but only ten days of filming were cut short due to COVID-19 restrictions.
Stephen will talk about his latest project on ‘The Graham Norton Show’ on BBC One tonight.
Graham will also be joined by actors Eddie Redmayne and Jessie Buckley, who appear together in a West End production of ‘Cabaret’.
“Strictly Come Dancing” judge Motsi Mabuse will also be on the couch, while Elton John and Charlie Puth will provide the music.
‘The Office’, which first aired on BBC Two, revolved around the Slough branch of the fictitious paper company Wernham Hogg.
His characters, especially David Brent, were known for their “laddish” humor, as well as their opinions that were not considered politically correct.
Stephen also said: “I feel like we came from a time when I was growing up, where the right, if you will, dictated what could be said, done and seen.
“Where Mary Whitehouse was the figurehead of censorship.
“And more and more now, it feels like the Liberal agenda dictates what we can and can’t joke about.”
The Graham Norton Show will air on BBC One tonight from 10:35 p.m. to 11:25 p.m.
