Johnny VegasJohnny Vegas
Johnny Vegas (aka Michael Pennington) won the Festival Critics' Award at the 1997 Edinburgh Festival, and was the first newcomer to be nominated for the Perrier Award.

A talented entertainer (don't call him a stand-up), he combines Butlins style sing-a-longs with pathos and belly laughs.

He presented The Big Breakfast during its twilight days, is a regular panellist on Shooting Stars and made a memorable guest appearance on Room 101, revealing an unhealthy obsession with chat room pubs. He also got a smile out of Anne Robinson on the The Weakest Link in 2000.

Johnny is also a talented comedy actor, as his award-winning performance as Charlie in Happiness showed. He also did a brilliant turn as Fran's dodgy landlord in Black Books.
