James Mullinger is one of the hottest comedians in the UK. He has toured five sold out, critically acclaimed stand up shows all over the UK, appeared on numerous television shows (alongside everyone from Tom Cruise to Cameron Diaz) and in the past twelve months has appeared in three big screen movies.
So what made this British comedian move with his wife and two young children to Saint John, New Brunswick in February this year to live permanently? To find out, come to the Townhouse pub on Friday 13th February and catch this unique British funnyman doing what he does best: live stand up comedy with this brand new show about his life in Canada, marriage, being a father, bachelor parties, Thomas The Tank Engine, why he loves New Brunswick, how he upset Anne Hathaway and Cameron Diaz, what happened when he met the Queen and Paul McCartney and why we should all be living the dream right now.
A truly uplifting laugh a minute comedy experience, London’s Evening Standard described him as “something of a sensation. Expect the anecdotes to come thick, fast and raucously funny.”
SPECIAL GUEST: MARK WALKER – One of Canada’s most sought after headliners, Walker normally plays vast theatres so don’t miss this rare chance to see him in an intimate venue.
Watch Walker in action here!
Mark Walker is a comedian with an incredible ability to combine razor sharp comedy with a dazzling array of celebrity impressions. His insights into the idiosyncrasies of life combined with his impressions of everyone from Jimmy Stewart to Joe Pesci have led him to become one of Canada’s most celebrated comedians and voice impressionists.
Here’s what others are saying about James Mullinger:
“Mullinger has made his mark all across New Brunswick since moving to the Port City back in February.” – Thomas Becker, Telegraph-Journal
“The moment this veteran British comic bounds onto the stage, you’re in for an amazing hour of solo comedy. Mullinger’s boundless energy and way out storytelling really carries this show, and in a way, can be seen as a motivational speech (but much more entertaining).” – Stuart Nulman, Montreal Times
“James Mullinger delivers a highly energetic and charismatic performance. Charming, self-deprecating, hilarious… bursts of laughter filled the room throughout.” – The Charlebois Post
“I can only dream of being able to bring and maintain the amount of sincere, passionate, positive energy that Mullinger brought to his show on opening night. I had never before felt more welcome as an audience member at a comedy show. Seriously, if you’re reading this and generally feel unwanted in your life, go see James Mullinger is Living The Dream and you’ll feel like a bazillion bucks within the first 10 minutes.” – CJLO.com
“He exceeds any expectations one would have of a stand-up or a story teller precisely because his unfiltered and un-doctored experiences emanate from an environment of such pathetic brutality. A bottomless pit of charisma, Mullinger’s very painful experiences end up making for a top-notch evening of groans, grimaces, and guttural laughter. A tale of epic proportions is woven before our very eyes.” –www.BloodyUnderrated.net
JAMES MULIINGER BIO
Mullinger burst onto the UK comedy scene in 2005 when he reached the finals of Jimmy Carr’s Comedy Idol, after just six months performing stand up. His performance in the final alongside Carr at The Comedy Store was filmed for Carr’s bestselling live DVD. In the subsequent 18 months he reached the finals of two other national new act competitions, appeared on a UK TV panel show and set up his own comedy club working with comedians such as Stephen Merchant, Michael McIntyre, Stewart Lee, Darrin Rose, Russell Brand and Sugar Sammy. He has also appeared on stage with Russell Peters at London’s 3,600 seater Hammersmith Apollo.
In 2012, Mullinger hosted the world’s first funny film review show ‘Movie Kingdom’ on TV channel DMAX which saw him riffing with Judd Apatow, Simon Pegg, Robin Williams and his all time hero Jerry Seinfeld. He also conducted hilarious interviews with A-list Hollywood stars such as Daniel Craig, George Clooney, Tom Cruise, Robert Downey Jr, Cameron Diaz and many more. The aim was always to make them laugh and he rarely failed. But when he did (most famously with a miserable Anne Hathaway), it was even funnier!
He now lives in Atlantic Canada playing clubs and doing corporate shows all over the world. He still appears on UK TV regularly and is currently appearing in a documentary about his career for Bell Aliant. He works closely with many charities and raised over half a million dollars last year to help young people in need and women who have experienced violence.
He is also the Comedy Editor for British GQ magazine writing jokes and conceiving, writing, producing and directing high concept photo shoots and short films with the likes of Paul Rudd, Chris Rock, Owen Wilson, Jerry Seinfeld, Ricky Gervais and Julia Louis Dreyfus.
