Sussex SummerFEST, in partnership with the Sussex Multicultural Association, is proud to welcome James Mullinger to the Sussex Regional High School Theatre, presented by PotashCorp!
British comedian James Mullinger was one of the hardest working stand ups in the UK as well as the Comedy Editor for GQ Magazine. Since moving to Canada in February 2014 he has been nominated for a Canadian Comedy Award for Best Live Solo Show and a Just For Laughs Award for Best Comedy Show. He has sold out the Imperial Theatre twice, appeared on CBC many times, produced three seasons of his own television series which follows him travelling around Canada performing comedy shows and headlined Yuk Yuk’s comedy clubs all over the country. A big budget movie had been made about his life (starring actors from Twilight, Downton Abbey and Notting Hill and comedians such as Jimmy Carr, Gilbert Gottfried, Mike Ward and Pete Zedlacher). It was described by NME as the “funniest film of the year.”
In 2014 he moved to Atlantic Canada with his wife and children and started playing clubs and doing corporate shows all over North America. In his first twelve months he was nominated for a Just For Laughs Best Comedy Show Award, headlined Yuk Yuks clubs, performed at numerous comedy festivals, appeared on stage with Canadian comedy legends Russell Peters, Nikki Payne, Pete Zedlacher and Derek Seguin, landed his own TV series for Bell Aliant (a faux-documentary about his life touring Canada incorporating real stand up footage with scripted scenes), appeared on CBC Radio numerous times, recorded and released his first live concert album and was the subject of a glowing article in The Montreal Gazette. He still appears on UK TV regularly and works closely with many charities raising almost half a million dollars last year to help young people in need and women who have experienced violence.
On 28th April 2016, James sold out Harbour Station Arena in Saint John, outselling Jerry Seinfeld, Iron Maiden, Def Leppard and Jeff Dunham! Come and see why James is taking Canada by storm.
