About James Mullinger
James Mullinger burst onto the UK comedy scene in 2005 when he reached the finals of Jimmy Carr’s Comedy Idol, after just six months performing stand up. His performance in the final alongside Carr at The Comedy Store was filmed for Carr’s bestselling live DVD. In the subsequent 18 months he reached the finals of two other national new act competitions, appeared on a UK TV panel show and set up his own comedy club working with comedians such as Stephen Merchant, Michael McIntyre, Stewart Lee, Darrin Rose, Russell Brand and Sugar Sammy. He has also appeared on stage with Russell Peters at London’s 3,600 seater Hammersmith Apollo.
In 2012, Mullinger hosted the world’s first funny film review show Movie Kingdom on TV channel DMAX which saw him riffing with Judd Apatow, Simon Pegg, Robin Williams and his all time hero Jerry Seinfeld. He also conducted hilarious interviews with A-list Hollywood stars such as Daniel Craig, George Clooney, Tom Cruise, Robert Downey Jr., Cameron Diaz and many more. The aim was always to make them laugh and he rarely failed. But when he did (most famously with a miserable Anne Hathaway), it was even funnier! This led to a web series for Comedy Central which saw him appearing with Seinfeld again as well as Amy Schumer, Lewis Black, Jim Jefferies and Gina Yashere.
James is the Comedy Editor for British GQ magazine writing jokes and conceiving, writing, producing and directing high concept photo shoots and short films with the likes of Paul Rudd, Chris Rock, Garry Shandling, Owen Wilson, Jerry Seinfeld, Ricky Gervais and Julia Louis Dreyfus to name but a few. Mullinger is also an award-winning writer and has interviewed Jerry Seinfeld, Bryan Forbes, Stephen Merchant, Bobcat Goldthwait, Rachel Weisz, Scarlett Johansson and hundreds more personalities.
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 12 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.
Ask James and he’ll tell you; moving to Canada was the best thing he ever did.
