Christian Stevenson is a man of many talents.
Whether he’s dj-ing at Bill Gates’ latest Microsoft party or acting in feature films, Christian is not easily pinned down.
Christian is probably best known and respected as the presenter of his Channel 5 television series ‘RAD’ and ‘RAD The Groms Tour’ which ran for 10 years and won him and the channel their first BAFTA in the Best Entertainment category. The Bafta currently takes pride of place in Christian’s downstairs loo!
More recently however, Christian’s love and knowledge as a BBQ cook extraordinaire has come to the fore. From an early age Christian has been obsessed with cooking, predominantly the art of barbequing. Christian grew up in the American South and since childhood he has immersed himself in this hugely underrated form of cooking, educating himself in the traditional artisan techniques of the Deep South and adding his own very individual take on various recipes. His alter ego DJ BBQ has been cooking up a storm and has now caught the eye of Jamie Oliver who has swiftly signed Christian up to present on his new YouTube television channel Food Tube. DJ BBQ is generating an impressive number of views and is causing quite a stir.
His career in radio is no less impressive…his Kerrang! Radio evening show amassed a huge fan base and Christian’s time at the station saw Kerrang! win Station of the Year twice. His experience in radio broadcasting dates back to his first stint on air at London’s XFM and he’s a regular DJ and host at major events such as Bestival, Global gathering, Lovebox, Ibiza Rocks Hotel, T In The Park, Reading Festival, V Festival, Download and Sonisphere.
Christian’s reputation as a respected broadcaster is equaled by his expertise and love of freesports. These are just some of the events he has hosted: Winter X Games, Goodwood Festival of Speed, Red Bull X-Fighters, Freeze (Channel4), The London Boat Show (Action Arena) and The Ski & Snowboard Show (Fashion Show). Christian also commentated at the London 2012 Olympics, at the BMX Motocross Event.
Previously, he has also fronted Snowball on MTV alongside co-presenter Kylie Minogue, Freesports on 4 (Channel 4), Chilli factor (Extreme Channel), and Legends of the Extreme (Extreme Channel).
Christian’s talents also extend to the world of gaming as he was heavily involved in the scripting and soundtrack of the hugely successful ‘Dirt 2’ racing game. This involvement led to Christian playing a character in the equally impressive ‘Dirt 3’ and going on to voice Dirt Showdown, (released later this year) and has also led to Christian’s 7th Bafta nomination!
