James Mullinger was one of the top stand ups in the UK as well as the Comedy Editor for GQ Magazine when he decided to make the permanent move to Atlantic Canada. Despite interviewing the likes of Tom Cruise, George Clooney and Cameron Diaz for his TV show, working with the likes of Jerry Seinfeld and Russell Peters and dining with everyone from Tony Bennett to Samuel L Jackson, James was not happy because his work took him away from his family. In 2014 he left it all behind and moved to a small, beautiful town in New Brunswick for a better quality of life for his wife and two young children. As he will tell you, this is the best decision he ever made. Finding a new love for life, he and his family thrived in the friendly, happy community of New Brunswick. Then, oddly, his career took off in ways he never expected in his new home and his story will change how you look at work, life and love forever.
Arriving in Canada as a relative unknown, James built his business up from scratch performing tiny gigs in basements and vineyards to spread the word about what he does. Within two years he went from playing to ten people in a dive bar to selling out the Imperial Theatre twice and then attracting over 4,500 people to Saint John’s Harbour Station (beating Jerry Seinfeld’s attendance record in the process). He believes in his new community so much has already personally raised over $50,000 for local charities. Last year a big budget British feature film was made about James’ life starring actors from Downton Abbey, Twilight and Notting Hill.
James believes that thanks to his big life changing move that so many people said would end his career he has come to believe that with the right attitude Anything is Possible in New Brunswick and he will tell you why this applies to you too.
