James Mullinger is confused. He is a loving husband, respected journalist, renowned feminist, father of two, spends much of his time doing charity work and has a degree in Women's Studies. So why does he secretly wish he was a 'hard man' or 'ledge'? Who does he crave the male camaraderie that is shared on the football terraces. Why does he want to be best mates with Danny Dyer? Mullinger hates football but has become obsessed with football hooliganism. What happened when he stalked Danny Dyer?
This brand new show from the critically-acclaimed comedian opened to rave reviews in February and promises to be Mullinger's best and most honest show yet. Come and find out what the comedian that Jimmy Carr described as "a great stand up" and Michael McIntyre branded "the next big thing" has to say about being a real man.

This brand new show from one of the hottest comedians in the country debuted at the Leicester Comedy Festival where it received this rave review:
Published in Leicester Mercury on 14th February 2014:
It isn’t every day a comedian bursts into a cockney accent, gets an audience to whip out their tattoos whilst screaming “LEGEND!” at every person he deems ‘hard’.
After his previous tour, aptly named ‘The Man with No Shame’, Mullinger has moved onto speaking of his biggest passion to date– the hardest man in town, Mr Danny Dyer.
Throughout the night we’d hear the word ‘legend’ thrown around like an old Frisbee, but it was this charming, crude and witty exterior with just a blend of feminist credentials that was working in Mullinger’s favour tonight.
It’s strange – he draws comprehensively on his very troubled childhood, even revealing pages of his drunken diary as a 16-year-old to a howling audience – it’s dark. But it definitely packs a punch, and an already rowdy crowd were reeling off his every word in what can only be described as a wonderfully hysterical manner.
As the show drew to a close, we see his dream came true as he reveals he got to STAR in a Danny Dyer movie (and even speak a line in a perfectly dodgy cockney accent); his eccentric, camp excitement gains a flurry of laughs from the audience. And rightly so.
His innovative content and animated, colourful quality of stand up certainly makes him one to look out for, and is only confirmed as I watch the lady in front of me vibrating with laughter, wiping a single giggly tear from her eye.
Bravo, James Mullinger. You certainly have our attention.

Being a favourite of Jimmy Carr and Michael McIntyre might crush lesser acts than James Mullinger: the weight of praise hanging over their heads like the sword of Damocles, ready to drop when they fail to live up to the fuss. Or, if you don’t like the stylings of Messrs Carr and McIntyre, then you might doubt the validity of their opinions. But you needn’t worry about such things. You need only go and see James Mullinger perform his own brand of stand-up and begin to believe the hype: with boundless energy and a startling sense of self degradation, Mullinger is fast establishing himself as one of the best acts in the country.
