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.
Since his arrival he has been taking Canada by storm. He has been nominated for a Canadian Comedy Award for Best Live One Person Show and a Just For Laughs Award for Best Comedy Show. James has headlined at numerous comedy festivals and clubs across Canada, appeared on CBC many times, produced two seasons of his own television series which documents his comedy performances while travelling around Canada, has twice sold out the Imperial Theatre in Saint John and in 2016 welcomed over 4,500 people to Saint John’s Harbour Station for a standing ovation show (beating Jerry Seinfeld’s attendance record in the process). In 2015 a big budget movie has been made about his life (starring actors from Twilight, Downton Abbey and Notting Hill and headline comedians such as Jimmy Carr, Gilbert Gottfried and Pete Zedlacher). James also works closely with many local charities and regularly helps raise much needed funds in his community and around the province.
This well rounded, high energy comic is at home on an edgy bar show or equally hilarious in a corporate clean environment.
Ladies and gentleman, we have a real treat for you this evening with one of the UK’s top comedians. He had his own show on Comedy Central, which saw him interviewing celebrities like Tom Cruise and Daniel Craig, he has appeared in big screen movies and worked with the likes of Jerry Seinfeld and Russell Peters.
A big budget British movie was recently made about his life starring actors from Downton Abbey, Notting Hill and Twilight which hits cinemas later this year. He is also the Comedy Editor for GQ Magazine. In 2014 he packed it all in and moved from London, England to New Brunswick and he’s going to tell you why. Since arriving, he has been taking Canada by storm being nominated for both a Just For Laughs Best Comedy Show Award and a Canadian Comedy Award. In May of 2016 he sold out Harbour Station in Saint John beating the sales record of both Jerry Seinfeld and Guns N Roses.
Please put your hands together for James Mullinger (Mull-In-Jur).
“James was extremely well received. It couldn’t have gone any better. His comedy was a huge success, we didn’t’ stop laughing the whole time. He was very accommodating to our schedule and a pleasure to deal with. Thank you to you and James for all your efforts in making our conference a success. I look forward to working with you both in the future.”

“Mr. Mullinger’s talent as an award-winning comedian is common knowledge, BUT an unexpected bonus was his unique ability to keep our team’s blood pressure in check. Any event organizer understands the ongoing concerns about cancellations, late arrivals, etc., when booking entertainment. James kept our minds at ease through ongoing communications every step of the way. His attentiveness in ensuring the content of his act was in line with our audience was greatly appreciated and a room full of gut-busting laughter during his performance solidified our belief that he was the perfect choice for our event. If you are looking to guarantee your event is an outstanding success, I strongly suggest you book James Mullinger as your entertainment.”
