A little more about James Mullinger:
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 five years ago Mullinger has 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 2019 James is on the road again and this will be his only Sackville show, as part of the annual Bordertown Festival!
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’ (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 (or confusing!) people in Germany, Japan and America.

Since then James has toured extensively to packed houses across Canada and England and written and produced a big screen feature film starring actors from Downton Abbey, Coronation Street 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. And in April last year he broke his own record selling out Harbour Station Arena yet again!
James is one of New Brunswick’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 New Brunswick 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 also launched his own international magazine The Maritime Edit (link: www.maritimeedit.com) to share his love of the small towns and cities Canada with the rest of the world and even wrote a feature on how Sackville is one of the best places to live in North America.
