British comedy duo James and Jamesy bring their comedic

O Christmas Tea to leave Tidemark audience ‘bubbling with laughter and brimming with holiday cheer’

As part of their Vancouver Island Tour, critically and audience acclaimed British comedians, James & Jamesy, make their triumphant debut in Campbell River this holiday season with their uproarious Christmas comedy O Christmas Tea, on stage Dec.16 and 17 at 7:30 p.m. at the Tidemark Theatre.

The 17-time ‘Best-of-Fest’ winners from theatre festivals across North America invite audience members of all ages to join them in their action-packed quest to save the world from drowning in tea.

“The Christmas season is a magical time of year that brings people of all ages together; a time when we are encouraged to dream big, embrace imagination and celebrate a child-like excitement for merriment,” says Jamesy, the quirky and playful half of London’s three-time Impresario Award-winning duo. “O Christmas Tea brings to the stage a celebration of that joyous holiday spirit, sweeping spectators into an immersive adventure, leaving them bubbling with laughter and brimming with holiday cheer.”

Catastrophe strikes at James and Jamesy’s Christmas tea party, flooding the world with tea. The friends leap into action, finding innovative and hilarious solutions to keep them afloat. Redefining immersive theatre, these masters of physical comedy—with over a dozen comedy awards to their name—sweep the audience out to sea in a jolly aquatic escapade brimming with whimsy, action, and ingenuity in a celebration of friendship at Christmas.

Regarded as “one of the most popular Fringe duos ever,” by the CBC, the charismatic James & Jamesy have toured across North America since 2012, performing their original works – including High Tea, 2 for Tea, and In The Dark – more than 400 times to more than 40,000 audience members, earning rave reviews and lifetime fans.

Among other accolades, the physical comedians are two-time finalists for the Just for Laugh’s Best Comedy Award and finalists for the Canadian Comedy Award for Best Live Ensemble. They have also been awarded Best of Fest (Winnipeg, Saskatoon, Toronto), Most Outstanding Show (London), Best Comedy (Victoria), Patron’s Pick (London), and Best Script (Montreal).

While on their Vancouver Island Tour, James & Jamesy will also be leading workshops with drama students from Timberline Secondary, Carihi Secondary and at the North Island Regional Drama Festival.

Tickets for the Dec. 16 and 17 show are available online at jamesandjamesy.com for $28 (adult), $24 (senior) and $15 (student).
