Welcome to the official web site of the actor Christopher Strauli

I am probably best remembered for my portrayal of Norman Binns in the hospital comedy hit "Only When I Laugh", made by Yorkshire Television in the late 1970s and early 1980s, however there are many other productions with which I was fortunate enough to be involved and these pages document them all (together with the few of which I am not so delighted to have been a part!)

'My CV' is just what it says (in chronological order and with as many photographs as I could find) and the candid comments version will, I hope, be more entertaining for those who are sufficiently interested. The short version - which appears below - is simply my performances which were either particularly well received or of which I am particularly proud.

Currently working predominantly in the world of Role-play/Communication, mostly helping to train Medical Graduates and Professionals within the Medical Profession. It's demanding, challenging, rewarding, stimulating, fascinating and I get to work with some wonderful people who restore my faith in human nature. All in all I feel very privileged to be able to do it.
