Cameron James is an up-and-coming comedian and troublemaker. He came second in Triple J’s Raw Comedy, and was named the “Next Big Thing” by Time Out. He has been funny on ABC, Triple J, on stages around the country and in conversations with peoples’ mothers. CJ has gained a reputation for a wide range of observational and confessional material; performing on all stages from comedy clubs, to alternative rooms, to the Sydney Opera House (once… in a stage show… he had one line…). His confident and laid-back approach, killer crowd work and improviser’s guts back him as a sought-out feature act, and a natural host. Cameron was lucky enough to tour nationally as an opening act for US comic, Ari Shaffir, play alongside Tommy Little and Celia Pacquola for over two thousand people at Splendour in the Grass and MC Dave Hughes at a small comedy room in Melbourne.
Since placing second in 2012’s Raw Comedy Competition - out of thousands of hopeful open mic comedians - Cameron has been working hard and non¬stop. With recent acting credits on ABC sketch show, How Not to Behave and The Roast, multiple appearances on Triple J and two critically acclaimed touring shows, Cactus Blastus (4 stars, Herald Sun 2015) and Paradise (4.5 stars, Adelaide Advertiser 2014) including sold out runs at Perth Fringe World, Adelaide Fringe, Sydney Fringe, Sydney Comedy Festival, Bondi Feast and the Melbourne International Comedy Festival. Cameron James is clearly a new comedy talent with a big future. He thinks you should listen to music loud, never litter and be good to your mother.
Cameron is currently creating comedy interstitials for Comedy Central Australia alongside Becky Lucas, and is in development on a number of television projects including Plus Ones, co-created with Sarah Bishop for the ABC.
