Paul Tonkinson

As seen on BBC1's 'Michael McIntyre's Comedy Roadshow'

Paul is one of the brightest stars of British stand up. Nationally best known as the unlucky chap who had to step into Johnny Vaughan's shoes on the Big Breakfast, he has long been established on the stand up circuit as a vibrant performer who will illuminate any bill.

Born in Scarborough in 1969, Paul studied Drama before moving to London in 1991, and then after barely a year on the comedy circuit he waltzed off with the prestigious Time Out Award for Comedy in 1992.

Since then he moved on to become co-host of BBC 2's Sunday Show, before gaining his own game show on Channel 4. After the show's runaway success the call for the Big Breakfast was inevitable, his decision to take it was testimony his fearlessness as a performer.

The loss to the show is stand up's gain however, and Paul can get back to doing what he does best tearing it up onstage. His acts flows effortlessly from desperate tales of avoiding the school bully, to the fear of oral sex. From the late night search for blood sugar, to trying to get laid with your parent upstairs.

His delivery is a refreshing change in it's positive outlook, all delivered with wit, style grace and a rubbery face.
