In 1999 Christian started playing guitar and singing for the American comic polymath, Rich Hall. High points included winning the Perrier Award in 2001 for “Rich Hall is Otis Lee Crenshaw”, being on subsequent CD and DVD releases, seeing the world, appearing on stage with Seinfeld star Michael Richards and getting on Late Night with Conan O’ Brien.

He was a regular on a BBC radio show with the Richard Herring, called That Was Then, This Is Now that was critically acclaimed and lasted for 3 series.
This led to a key role in Herring’s groundbreaking podcast, As It Occurs To Me which ran for three years and won a Chortle award for best internet comedy.

Christian will be previewing his Edinburgh Festival show ‘Songs Of Praise’.
