British transplant, and now Saint John resident, stand-up comic James Mullinger makes his first Carleton appearance with an early show on Saturday, February 17th. Show time is 7 PM and tickets are $15 advanced or $20 at the door. James hosted the 2016 East Coast Music Awards and killed it so, you know, he’s funny – a quality that’s very, very important in a comedian – at least in our experience! Kyle Barnet, a Halifax-native who won CBC’s Open Mic contest at the HubCap Comedy Festival last week, will be opening the show!
British comedian James Mullinger has taken Canada by storm. Sold out shows across the country, appearances on CBC’s The Debaters (including one at the Rebecca Cohen in Halifax), movies, TV shows, festivals, awards, magazines, stand up specials – since moving to the Maritimes three 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 2018 James is on the road again!
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 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 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 the Maritimes’ biggest cheerleader. He loves it here and spends his time promoting it across the world and raising money for local charities and non-profits. James has raised more than $100,000 for East Coast 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 to share his love of Canada’s East Coast with the rest of the world.
This is his only 2018 solo tour show in Halifax. Book now for this show, it will sell out.
