Christian Steel – Gloom Hunter (Laughing Pot Management)

By | Published on Saturday 22 August 2015

Christian Steel

“You’re possibly the quietest crowd I’ve ever played to,” mentions Christian Steel at the end of ‘Gloom Hunter’. The pleasant Geordie regularly approaches the crowd, attempting to get laughs out of individual digs but, when he fails to do so, Steel just resorts to saying that they’re “lovely”. ‘Gloom Hunter’ details personal anecdotes from the comic’s life and how it has all been gloomy for the last eleven years and Steel sails through his stories, transitioning to each new topic at lightning speed. There are many words spoken in this hour, but unfortunately Steel didn’t have many very jokes to deliver.

Cowgatehead, until 31 Aug.
