What you need to know about COVID-19: October 20, 2020
British comedian James Mullinger takes the stage Sept. 19-20 at the Kings Playhouse in Georgetown – his first performances in the eastern P.E.I. community.
Having taken much of Canada by storm, Mullinger has sold-out shows across the country, as well as appeared on CBC’s The Debaters, movies, TV shows, festivals, awards, magazines and standup specials since moving to the Maritimes six years ago.
In April 2016, Mullinger sold-out New Brunswick’s biggest indoor venue, Harbour Station Arena (beating Jerry Seinfeld’s sales record in the process), with his uniquely hilarious standup show.
This record-breaking show was documented for a CBC documentary film, City On Fire, which aired across Canada to rave reviews and high ratings. The standup special of the show itself was picked up by Hulu and Amazon Prime so his tales of life in Canada are now being enjoyed by people in Germany, Japan and America.
Prior to March 2020, Mullinger toured extensively to packed houses across Canada and England and has written and produced a big screen feature film starring actors from Downton Abbey and Twilight about his early years in standup, which was described as “unmissable” by GQ Magazine and “essential viewing, a funny, realistic look at what it takes to become a standup comedian,” by the Montreal Times.
Mullinger is one of Atlantic Canada's biggest cheerleaders and spends his time promoting it across the world. He has also raised more than $150,000 for East Coast charities. As one of Canada’s top comics, he has been nominated for a Just For Laughs comedy award and a Canadian Comedy Award for best live show and a Canadian Comedy Award for best taped live performance.
This show features brand new material for 2020 as well as some of his classic routines, including Maritime Directions (which has notched up almost half a million view on Facebook alone).
