I was 6ft tall by the time I was 11. I was a looming, towering figure of ridicule, a high Labrador.

I watched him in Doc Martin some years ago, I estimated him at 6’4”. I wasn’t far out then.

I did see 6’3” listings but this is possible.

If is true i guess all celebrities listing need to be down 1.5".

I met him in West Hollywood. He's a little over 6'2 but I wouldn't give him 6'3

Tall guy for sure, wasn't sure how tall exactly but 191-192 at least, not shorter. Underrated actor, too.

@Angus, nope even with a slouch on that Graham Norton episode he still noticeably cleared six foot.
Angus said on 12/Oct/18
6 ft flat next to ewan mcgregor

Solid 6'3.5 in the morning. Got 2 inches on 6'1.5 Ayoade and still looked down on 5'9.25 Noel Fielding in his cuban heels.

He looked very tall in Miss Peregrino, around 1,93-94. I am surprised he is listed this height here. He was clearly taller than the boy Who plays his son in Miss Peregrine, Who was as tall as Samuel L. Jackson or at least close historia height
jay said on 4/Mar/17
really? i would say not taller than 6'0" he quite a bit shorter than Jason Segal in "this is 40" and segal is tall.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 9/Nov/16
Ayoade could pull off 6ft2 with Chris
anon said on 9/Nov/16
Ayoade said he was 180cm really? not a chance he is just 5'11- More like 6'1.5- As for Chris O'Dowd think he is 191- 192cm range around 6'3.25- 6'3.5 he might measure
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 17/Jun/16
Rob, how tall do you think Richard Ayoade is?
Editor Rob
I would say somewhere in 6ft 1-2 zone he can look.
Real Paul Solar said on 3/Jul/15
I met Richard Ayoade on London Underground, he confirmed that he is 180cm but he wouldn't stand up. He looked a sold 1801cm though. Very good looking.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 21/Apr/15
Rob, who do you think would be taller back-to-back, Chris O'Dowd or Paul Bettany?
Editor Rob
it is possible both are very similar, Paul generally is a guy with more looser posture at times.
lelman said on 20/Dec/14
Cheers Rob.

Also, is it just me or is Michael Mcintyre packing lifts there? He's looking 5'9-10ish when there is no way he is that tall in reality, always pegged him at about 5'7.5 tops
Editor Rob
yeah 5ft 7.5 range is possible for him, at times he can look anywhere from a 5ft 7 to 8.
lelman said on 18/Dec/14
Rob, what's your estimate for Matt Berry and Richard Ayoade?

Click Here

Matt Berry is listed at 5'10" but he can look lower than that to me, Richard always looks about an inch or two shorter than O'Dowd so I think 6'2"s pretty fair for him.
Editor Rob
somewhere close to 6ft 2 is quite possible, matt berry maybe 5ft 9 range.
Jakob said on 4/Dec/14
Strong 6'3" guy. I was thinking more 191 but I could buy 192.
Ajax said on 29/Nov/14
Disagree with Cole -- he was decidedly shorter than Jason Segel in "This is 40", who had about an inch on him. I'd downgrade him to 6ft2.5.
pjk said on 6/Jun/14
Thats really weird, i never thought he looked that tall on the IT crowd but thats because i was assuming Richard Ayoade was about 6ft so i thought Chris was about 6'1". Just goes to show you. Good old celebheights telling it like it is !
cole said on 28/May/14
This is fair. He can look a good 12-13 cm taller than 179 cm James Franco when standing tall, and has about 4 cm on 187-188 cm Richard Ayoade. He also seemed pretty much the same height as Jason Segel in 'This is 40'.
Arch Stanton said on 17/Feb/14
Does look quite lanky in Pirate Radio (The Boat that Rocked). So many tall Irish actors!
btn said on 18/Nov/13
In an episode of "Family Tree" he states his height at 6'4".
Ajax said on 16/Mar/13
Found an article stating him as 6'3"

MaskDeMasque said on 11/Sep/12
i think chris morris is 6'4 and o'dowd looked shorter than him. about 6'3 i'd say.
HAL said on 11/Aug/12
Chris and Richard are both huge, I extra'd in an episode of The IT Crowd, I'm 1.78, and they easily towered half a foot over me, Chris being about an inch taller than Richard.
Godred said on 13/Dec/11
I think somewhere between 6`2 and 6`3 is more likely.
Bleemo said on 20/Oct/11
Camera angle is tiled in that photo jack it validates 6'4" for Dowd.
mike said on 4/Jun/11
I worked with him on crimson petal and the white, I'm 5'11.5, and I would say that Chris was about 2 inches taller than me.
Mathew said on 4/Jun/11
I thought he was 6'3".
Benj said on 2/Jun/11
I reckon 6'4 is regarded as more than just averagely tall-I don't know anyone that height myself , though in upper class areas it's amazing how many young guys seem to be around the 6'2 mark. Then again in working class east London I was the tallest person at 181 cm -on a crowded bus. Seems a bit sick really how much difference upbringing can make. Then again about 60% of those people were south asain I'll shut up now
thorterr said on 24/May/11
if richard ayoade is 6ft 2 then chris is nearly 6ft 4 according to this pic

Jake said on 13/Apr/11
Robby, Robby, Robby... The guy is 6'2.5" tops.
ih said on 30/Mar/11
Well Michael Macintyre is 5'7" and in this photo Click Here

we can see that Chris O' Dowd is more like 6'2.5" at the most
Godred said on 21/Mar/11
Is 6`4 his shoe height? - seems a little large for him, his poture must be terrible.
SAK said on 20/Mar/11
He was on SomethingForTheWeekend today, and he said he is 6ft4.
Anonymous said on 18/Nov/10
the guy who plays the security guard character is Oliver Chris who also starred in the office. He's listed everywhere as being 6'3, but I think he maybe downgrading. Look at him in the office, he was a full head over ricky gervais perhaps more.
Jimmy said on 13/Nov/10
Always thought Chris was an average looking man until I once saw him at an awards show standing next to Jen from the IT Crowd. He absolutely towered her
Beatlefan said on 11/Nov/10
Medical statistics show that British people aren't much taller than they were 30 years ago anyway.There may be more taller people around but there are still plenty of shorter people to bring the overall average down to about 5'9" and 3/4. Which is quite obviously a long way off 6'4".
Will said on 9/Nov/10
Richard Ayoade is 6 ft 2
Buzz said on 5/Nov/10
Maybe it's just the younger generations, I see many people under 30 in the 6'4 range today.
For someone over 40 it would be quite unusual, Clint Eastwood always looked tall at that height. But in about 30 years I really don't think it'll be anything special.
Anonymous said on 2/Nov/10
i figured he was 6'2" from IT crowd - wonder how tall Richard Ayoade (Moss)is then? they look pretty close in height if i remember correctly.

holds his own against 6'7" stephen merchant, i think around 6'3"-6'4" maybe?
