Fun at One is a regular spot featuring comedy classics. Although Paul has a lot of favourite comedy acts he prefers those that focus on situations that everybody can identify with. He explains, 'It's great when you can recognise that moment and remember the embarrassment when it actually happened to you. I like to look on the funny side of life, and if I was given the choice I would love to be a comedian. A good one of course'.
Regular listeners will know that he is indeed humorous, and often produces various voices and impersonations triggered-off by record titles, but claims he doesn't have a repertoire. How did he first start?
'Going to 12 different schools I was always the new boy, and I soon learned that if I managed to do a good impersonation of the worst teacher I'd make friends - and save myself from being hit'

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
