British comedian James Mullinger has taken Canada by storm. Sold out shows across the country, appearances on CBC’s The Debaters, movies, TV shows, festivals, awards, magazines, stand up specials – since moving to New Brunswick six years ago he’s done it all. 

But he’s putting movies and TV shows aside to go out and do what he loves most. Live stand up comedy. For four months solid, James is on the road again and this is his only tour date in his favourite town of Chester! 

Did you read his favourite on why he loves Chester in The Maritime Edit magazine? You should! 

In April 2016, James sold out New Brunswick’s biggest indoor venue Harbour Station Arena (beating Jerry Seinfeld’s sales record in the process) with his uniquely hilarious stand-up show. This record-breaking show was documented for a CBC documentary film ‘City On Fire’ (which you can watch here) which aired across Canada to rave reviews and high ratings. The stand up special of the show itself was picked up by Hulu and Amazon Prime so his tales of life in Canada are now being enjoyed by people in Germany, Japan and America. Read more about it here.

In April 2018 he sold out Harbour Station a second time, this time beating his own record which made headlines across the pond.

James tours extensively to packed houses across Canada and England and has written and produced a big-screen feature film starring actors from Downton Abbey and Twilight about his early years in stand up, which was described as “unmissable” by GQ Magazine and “essential viewing. A funny, realistic look at what it takes to become a stand-up comedian,” by the Montreal Times.

James is one of Canada’s biggest cheerleaders. He loves it here and spends his time promoting it across the world and raising money for charities and non-profits. James has raised more than $150,000 for East Coast charities. He has also become one of Canada’s top comics, being nominated for both a Just For Laughs comedy award and a Canadian Comedy Award for Best Live Show and a Canadian Comedy Award for Best Taped Live Performance.

Book now for this show, it sold out last year and will again this year!
