Tom Pinks (Otherwise known as Paul Stark) was a comedian who auditioned for Series 7 of Britain's Got Talent. Before his audition, he was seen talking to Jack Carroll (who ended up being runner-up) whilst a number of 'bad comedians' were performing.
His first joke (a knock-knock joke with the punchline 'a funny joke') received no reaction from the audience and an immediate buzz from Alesha. After his second joke, the audience began to boo and call for him to be sent off stage. He then stopped his performance and said 'oh forget it, they're better that you are'. Simon told him that 'those jokes were some of the worst I've ever heard', resulting in cheering from the audience, Paul then called for the audience to 'shut up', and left the stage describing the show as 'absolutely ridiculous'.
- Paul Stark was actually a character created by Tom Pinks in order to deliberately tell bad jokes.
