The Maidenhead-born comedian has taken Canada by storm since moving there in 2014.
He has been nominated for a Canadian Comedy Award and a Just For Laughs Award for Best Comedy Show. His stand up special Anything Is Possible was performed to over 5000 people, released internationally on Amazon Prime and was a bestseller on Blu Ray in North America.
James twice beat Jerry Seinfeld's sales record with his colossal arena shows. In 2015, James Buckley (The Inbetweeners) played James in a big screen movie about his early years in comedy (starring actors from Twilight, Downton Abbey and Notting Hill and comedians such as Jimmy Carr and Gilbert Gottfried). James works closely with many charities and in the past few years has raised over half a million dollars for children in need and women affected by violence.
He has sold out Norden Farm four times and loves it here so much that has picked this venue for his only UK tour date of 2018!

The comedian comes to Norden Farm following three critically acclaimed shows and direct from the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. He’s hit the road for his third and largest UK tour.
Steve Bugeja was voted “most likely to be forgotten” at school (the reunion was in February, apparently).
To prove his former classmates wrong, he hits the road for his third and largest UK tour to date with Almost, following three critically-acclaimed shows and direct from the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
Almost sees Steve trapped on a 13-hour flight when he receives a text that flips his entire world upside down, leading him to contemplate issues of great importance. Is finding “the one” possible? Can we trust the pharmaceutical industry? And why are Japanese toilets so much better than ours?
Since winning the BBC New Comedy Award, Steve has appeared on shows including Love Island: Aftersun (ITV2), Russell Howard’s Good News (Comedy Central) and Top Tens (BBC3). Making a name for himself internationally, Steve has been invited to perform at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival twice, appearing on ABCTV’s Opening Night Comedy Allstars Supershow and twice on Comedy Up Late.
