Paul Tonkinson

Date of birth: 30-11-1968
Paul Tonkinson started stand-up in 1992, when he won the Time Out New Act of the Year Award. The same London magazine named him stand-up comic of the year in 1997. He is now a circuit stalwart, and regularly entertains the troops.

He gained more exposure as presenter of BBC Two's The Sunday Show in 1996; and in 2001 he landed the job as Johnny Vaughan's replacement on The Big Breakfast. However, he lasted only two months before he was fired.

He was the first breakfast show presenter on Xfm Manchester when it launched in March 2006, before moving to Xfm London the following year. He left the station in early 2008.
