The Man With No Shame
Filmed live at CB2 Bistro, 5/7 Norfolk Street, Cambridge, CB1 2LD
Critically acclaimed stand-up comedian, TV presenter, journalist and BBC Radio regular James Mullinger performs his brand new stand up show as part of the Cambridge Festival Of Ideas.
Inspired by Michael Fassbender in Shame, Mullinger explores the notion of shame and whether borders, boundaries and margins restrict us in daily life. Delving into every humiliating moment of his 34 years, he opens up and reveals more than you can possibly imagine.
This is his fourth solo stand up show. His first show in 2009, The Bad Boy Of Feminism, was a huge hit receiving rave reviews in The Sunday Times and The Guardian before touring including two sold out shows at the Soho Theatre.
His second Schooldays also toured to huge acclaim. And last year's straight stand up show sold out two nights at London's Roundhouse before touring the UK and Canada.
Mullinger's shows are famed for their shockingly honest approach to stand up and audience members always ask him after shows if there is anything about his life he won't share.
Questioning the limits of shame, Mullinger opens up and explores how restrictive society can be about shame and how liberating it can be to dispose of any notion of shame. No stone will be left unturned in this shockingly hilarious show. Mullinger's awkward past, his parenting skills, his sexual history – it's all here. He will also be revealing what happened when the cameras were off on the set of his TV show Movie Kingdom. Interviewing the likes of Tom Cruise, Daniel Craig, Salma Hayek as well as comedians as varied as Stewart Lee, Rob Brydon, Greg Davies, Jackie Mason and Jerry Seinfeld was a dream come true but things didn't always go to plan!
The incidents other comedians would pay to conceal, Mullinger lays bear for your delectation. The comedian Michael McIntyre described as "the next big thing" is back with his funniest show yet.
