Dating Tips From The First Episode Of Stephen Merchant's Hello Ladies

Hello Ladies is a new comedy series from Stephen Merchant, who helped create the original UK series of The Office, and Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky, who both wrote for the US version of The Office.

Much of Merchant's comedy, both stand-up routines and his characters in comedy series, has played with the idea that he's not very good at interacting with women. Particularly women that he's interested in. This new series focuses solely on that idea. Hopefully playing around with these ideas for a while has given him a good idea of how best to craft the funniest moments out of awkward interactions.

Here are two clips that have just been posted online to support the premiere of the series on HBO tomorrow.
