JAMES MULLINGER – ALMOST CANADIAN
2019 CROSS CANADA TOUR
– ONLY SUMMERSIDE SHOW OF 2019 –
featuring Patrick Ledwell

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 Atlantic Canada four 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 all of Spring James is on the road again and this is his only Summerside date in 2019!

In April 2016, James sold out New Brunswick’s biggest indoor venue Harbour Station 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: https://youtu.be/MJRItrjyHnY) which has 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 Atlantic Canada are now being enjoyed by people in Germany, Japan and America. Read more about it here. (Link: http://www.theeastmag.com/2017/08/27/james-mullingers-stand-comedy-hits-world-stage-amazon-prime/).

In April 2018 he sold out Harbour Station a second time, this time beating how own record which made headlines across the pond: https://www.chortle.co.uk/other-news/2018/05/03/39868/unknown_comic_outsells_seinfeld_%E2%80%93%C2%A0again

James tours extensively to packed houses across Canada and England and 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 $100,000 for Maritimes 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.

He is also a much sought after corporate clean comedian and keynote speaker on the subjects of marketing, media and uplifting positivity celebrating where you live and work. Performing his keynote speech ‘Anything Is Possible’ for companies as varied as Irving Oil, TD Canada, New Brunswick School Board, Construction Association of Nova Scotia, Road Builders Association, Atlantic Canada Regional Council of Carpenters, the Crane Rental Association of North America, Moosehead Breweries, New Brunswick Immigration Symposium and hundreds more. A highly skilled MC, he has hosted the 2017 East Coast Music Awards, the EY Entrepreneur Of The Year Awards, The ContactNB Awards and the GQ Comedy Extravaganza featuring Russell Peters.

He also launched his own international magazine The Maritime Edit (www.maritimeedit.com) to share his love of the small towns and cities of Atlantic Canada with the rest of the world.

This is his first ever solo stand up show at the Harbourfront Theatre featuring brand new material as well as some of his classic routines including Maritime Directions. Book now for this show, it will sell out!
