  2. Come on, James! I had even read Jane Eyre in high school. How couldn't you even read that novel while you were in school?

  3. Never mind being embarrassed, tell them your busy writing to be reading James, canโ€™t wait till the Christmas showing of Gavin and Stacey! ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’™

  4. Hahaha, this guy is always in the Audience Q&A, I know he's James' staff but could be a pal of James' from the UK. Funny guy….

  5. Another fake ass skit that he pulls wwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy too often

  6. Night Circus is awesome! For anyone, who likes surreal stuff with magic, but also good characters and some shit to reflect on… it's REALLY good โ™ฅ

  7. Hello James … I can't get The Adele Carpool Karaoke ( Lady gaga , Justin Bieber , … ) out of My Head ….
    Please do more Carpool James …
    I suggest big guest starring Carpool Karaoke … WIth multiple Artist at the same TIme …

    Thank You , You're unique , Your show is unique โ˜ฎ

  8. The great Gatsby was boring as balls, not sure why people like it. If my high school teacher didn't make me read it there's no way in hell I would have.

  9. I cannot breathe right now ๐Ÿ˜‚ OMG this is too funny. The segments from this show are just consistently better and funnier than every other late night show…

    (I was waiting for a green eggs and ham question but they just stuck with hungry caterpillar lmao)

  10. When youโ€™re marveling at the placement and quality of Lake Bellโ€™s tattoos only to Google and discover sheโ€™s married to Scott Campbell. Well that explains it.

  11. Everything about this was comedic perfection. Except for saying Lord Rochester… it was Mr. Rochester ๐Ÿ˜›

  12. The reaction of the audience seems that most of them don't know Dostoyevsky and his works.
    By the way, I really wonder if James Corden actually has read "The very hungry caterpillar".
