Christian Steel, a graduate of London's Academy of Music and Dramatic Art, first began performing stand-up comedy in October 2005.
As an actor, he was offered the male lead in The Graduate in the West End opposite Jerry Hall, but turned it down to play Peter 'Geordie' Gardner in BBC's Second World War film Night Flight alongside Edward Woodwood. He then went on to film Channel 4's Shackleton with Kenneth Branagh - living on an ice breaker in the North Pole for five months.
He has also performed with the Royal Shakespeare company in Coriolanus and The Merry Wives of Windsor.

To add to my last comment. Terry Alderton has just reported being attacked at one of these army barrack gigs. This is what I thought was going to happen to me and I felt very intimidated by the atmosphere and the aggressive crowd. I am still amazed after being left at the gates for over an hour Dave said I was late when their own records at the gates would show I was there well before I was due. I won't be accepting these gigs again. If Terry gets attacked I would have no chance.
In my defence to comment left by Dave- I turned up early but delayed at the gates of the barracks waiting for Dave. He was late not me. When I got into the gig with my wife, I walked up to the stage to see the set up- on my journey to the stage I was barraged with abuse before I'd even got on stage. I returned to my wife to find that the clearly drunk and aggressive crowd had said some very inappropriate things to her and at that point I thought we should go. A comic isn't there to take abuse -nor is my wife. I play all over the world to every kind of audience but I've never been treated that way.
I booked Christian for a Christmas ball in Tidworth garrison in 2012 whereupon turning up late he stayed for 15 mins then phoned me up form the front gate to tell me its not his thing and left me right in the poo! Not very impressed!
Great energy. A born entertainer.
Christian opened for me last month in one of my midweek clubs and I am booking him to headline my weekend night next month. He is original, spontaneous and hilarious.
Christian was our headline act at a charity gig in aid of Harlington hospice. He donated his time to us. He was very funny and his little guitar was a great additon to the set! He was a very strong act and received well by our audience. Definitely worth seeing or booking!
An immensly strong act/compere who will evolve into something even more special. A brilliant comic!
