Join us for a night of guaranteed laughter with James Mullinger, Award-winning British & Canadian Stand-Up Comedian. To start off the laugh-out-loud show, making his Shediac debut, Halifax funny-man ventriloquist and America’s Got Talent participant, Michael Harrison.
À propos des comédiens
Michael turns ventriloquism upside-down with his original puppets and creative routines; vaudeville ventriloquism for a new generation.
Michael channels the talents of his legendary great grandfather, Frank Merryfield (vaudeville ventriloquist) into a one-man, laugh out loud romp into the past with his new up to date twist on this long lost art form. Michael is a talented ventriloquist, puppeteer and comedian with a lifetime of experience in this unique field of entertainment. He has worked with Kelly Clarkson, The Muppets and Boyz to Men. He has headlined on the world's most luxurious cruise lines; Disney, Royal Caribbean, Princess, Norwegian and Crystal. Corporate events; Rainbow Room, Rockefeller Center-New York, The Bellevue Grand Ballroom-Philadelphia. Comedy clubs and Festivals; Hong Kong Comedy Festival, Catch a Rising Star-New York, Yuk Yuks- Canada. Shows at luxury resorts Atlantis and Sandals in the Caribbean.
Michael took his talents to a new level when he appeared on the hugely successful television show, America's Got Talent, receiving glowing reviews from the celebrity judges. He has written and performed on the award winning television show “Kids in the Firehall” (Bronze Apple Award Winner) and is the star of the reality television pilot “The Dummy Test”.
Just a few words used to describe this one of kind entertainer. From luxurious cruise ships to national conventions and conferences, Michael Harrison can deliver a knock out performance every time.
James Mullinger was one of the UK’s top comedians and Comedy Editor for GQ magazine when he moved to Canada in February 2014. Since his arrival, he has taken the country by storm. Sold out shows across the country, appearances on CBC’s The Debaters, movies, TV shows, festivals, awards, stand-up specials he’s done it all.
An award-winning writer, comedian and filmmaker, he spent 15 years in a senior position at British GQ, interviewing everyone from Jerry Seinfeld and Paul Rudd to Rachel Weisz and Scarlett Johansson and launching the magazine’s digital division. In April 2016 and 2018, James sold out Harbour Station Arena in New Brunswick with his uniquely hilarious stand-up show, outselling Jerry Seinfeld, Jeff Dunham and Guns N' Roses when they played the same venue. An award-winning CBC documentary about the show titled City On Fire was aired nationally to rave reviews.
His latest stand-up special, Almost Canadian, shot straight to #1 on the iTunes charts and was nominated for a Canadian Comedy Award for Best Taped Live Performance. It is available to watch internationally on Amazon Prime Video. The film that he co-wrote about his early years in comedy was released in cinemas across the UK and premiered at the Just for Laughs festival in Montreal in 2016. It stars actors from Downton Abbey, Twilight and Game of Thrones.
“Compulsive viewing. A very funny man with a big future ahead of him.”

“The moment this veteran British comic bounds onto the stage, you’re in for an amazing hour of solo comedy. James is Britain’s greatest gift to Canadian comedy.”
