Merrick Watts is a qualified wine specialist and comedian. Join him on a journey through the wonderful world of wine where he is the idiot but also strangely the expert. Whether you are a connoisseur or an enthusiast, there is something for everyone. Comedy meets wine, laughter meets learning, and you get to drink! What more could you want?

This is the first volume of Merrick's sold-out show, which toured the country in 2023 to all mainland states and major arts festivals. Now it's time for Hobart to see what all the hype is about!

Merrick Watts is a loved radio host and has appeared on TV shows like The Project, Hughesy, We Have a Problem, and was one of the winners of the first series of SAS Australia.
