Saw him on the edition of Buzzcocks which replaced the scheduled Russell Brand one. Didn't make much of an impression on me one way or the other.

Then there was a feature on him in Guardian Weekend in which he seemed a pretty repulsive sort of fellow.

On balance he doesn't annoy me a trillionth as much as Michael fucking McIntyre.

i recognised his voice pretty much straight away. it did seem stupid to give it to Gervais who has done fuck all this year and his video speech was tired - but G&S was obv going to win an award anyway. the awards show was crap tho, probably poorer for lack of Ross - Deayton, a few early gags aside, fluffed lines and banter a few times and they ran so late they cut to the credits during his final message. also Carrot was really unfunny for someone winning a contribution/achievement award.

i watched the youtube clip of kevin bishop throwing things at the inbetweeners guys as they collected their award ( ) and thought he looked like a nasty coked-up fuckwit. checked out some of his sketches and the reality is far far worse:

so depressing that this is where british comedy is right now. the clips ive seen of inbetweeners aren't much better either, but this bishop guy is the absolute pits. like bobby davro level pits. even if he was slightly funny he shat all over it by being in a fucking natwest advert. is this a new low in vaguely-edgy comedians sucking corporate cock the second it's offered?

NI, Monday, 8 December 2008 20:43 (ten years ago) link

I don't mind Kevin Bishop. I think he's probably a complete tool, but some of his stuff raises the odd laugh.

omg that youtube clip!

Katy Brand "Fuck you Bishop....(to audience) he never paid for our baby..."

think Bishop then says "you're still carrying it"?!

i dunno if he is all that bad - some of these guys deserve to have stuff thrown at them...someone should've clouted him anyway tho. Star Stories has it's moments. it took me ages to realise it's him in those NatWest ads for some reason.

Horne and Corden, the 21st century Little & Large, except not as funny.

snoball, Tuesday, 24 February 2009 14:57 (ten years ago) link

was thinking the same thing

me too. also what, specifically, makes Corden "vile and disgusting" - if not just that he is porky and often unfunny (esp. when not in character).

my Mum likes him because "it's nice that he laughs at other people like Sean Locke's jokes so much"

i like Horne too - esp. recent appearance on Buzzcocks where he and Martin Freeman did the 'look of haplessness and despair' thing together

Brits hosts have performed terribly since relatively acceptable Chris Evans in '95

O Supermanchiros (blueski), Tuesday, 24 February 2009 15:04 (ten years ago) link

But they made such a mess of the Brits, not just presenting it incompetently, but peppering their between-act links with unfunny jokes which presumably they scripted themselves. "Craig David hasn't had a hit single for a while!" oh hahahahaha...

Mark G, Tuesday, 24 February 2009 15:19 (ten years ago) link

For some unknown reason I was watching a "making of" Gavin & Stacey show, which directly followed an episode which I also had inexplicably watched.

For my money Stacey is one of the most saccharine actresses I've ever seen. Nothing she says is memorable. I have no doubt that lots of people like her because she seems "sweet", but she brings a whole lot of nothing to the part. Even the guy who plays Gavin is better. You get the feeling that in private he's a bit of a cunt but at least you've got that to hold onto. As for their on-screen chemistry - I know these things are subjective, but I actually thought they were supposed to be brother and sister for the first 3/4 of the show.

So what does James Corden say to the interviewer, while the lighting guys are lining up another shot? "It was like really important for us to have their relationship be really believable - the entire show is built around that - if you don't believe their relationship the whole thing falls apart." Too right.

(Later, Gavin says that he is incomparably thrilled to get to work with the actress who plays Stacey - he says he learns from her, that he's so lucky to play opposite someone of her talent. I think he may have even convinced himself of this.)

Tracer re Stacey she's an entirely believable character which presumably serves as some kind of counter-balance to Nessa's general absurdity - at least I think that's the intention. But the believability of Stacey doesn't make her a waste of time imo.

I dunno if it's that I'm missing something with G&S, but every time I try and watch it just feels like the same things are happening, and they're not really happening in a very interesting manner. Someone's trying to get some people in a vaaan, 'ow are they gonna get that many people in a vaaan, oh don'choo worry we'll sort it all aaaht, and it all gets sorted out and Ruth Jones says something like "Same thing 'appened when I was doing my pole-dancing for John Major". It's the same feeling I get off Entourage, really, this sort of air of slightly forced likeability that's, y'know, bearable and such, but never actually funny or anything.

William Bloody Swygart, Tuesday, 24 February 2009 15:49 (ten years ago) link

I think the underlying premise is that the couple are the 'normals' and each step away from them towards the periphery is populated by characters that are more and more strange.

Or, it might just be on the 'Welsh' side.

I can tell you some day in person, blueski, if you like. Typing too much at once hurts me.

WT is beyond 'poor writing' - it's a kind of poor writing, but it's worse and deeper than that. I expect it's better as a TV programme.

Actually, it's not about them anyway. It's about the two characters who coincidentally are the ones who are the writers, who get the interesting storylines and the funniest lines in it. Funny that.

Phil Claydon’s instantly forgettable lad’s mag farce Lesbian Vampire Killers is an appalling waste of a perfectly decent title. James Corden and Mathew Horne are two witless slobs who go for a hike in Norfolk with an industrial quantity of condoms and end up being savaged by a posse of groaning 18-year-olds with plastic teeth, few clothes, pneumatic breasts and three brain cells between the lot of them. It’s profoundly awful.

Vampire movies are ripe for spoof and this doesn't stray far from the path of modesty trodden by Hammer House.

Impish Swede MyAnna Buring and Paul McGann as a vampire-hating vicar both play it brilliantly deadpan.

Once Horne and Corden are split up, with the vicar teaming up with Fletch and Lotte falling for Jimmy, the laughs start to flow. By the end of the movie your critic had lost control of his funny bone.

Other reviewers will say that Lesbian Vampire Killers is another British comic flop, but The Sneak won't be driving that stake into its heart.

just discovered this cunt's existence thanks to the speech debelle thread.

Mercury winner Speech Debelle was booed by Take That fans as she tried to rap one of their songs at a London event in honour of the group.

Debelle chose to rap her way through the 1993 hit single Pray, leading to boos from some of the 500-strong crowd.

She was also criticised by host James Corden, who said "anyone can rap", before launching into a rap of his own.

not to defend debelle, but what the actual fuck, this james corden dude is intolerable and needs a fucking punch in the face. how the hell does he have a career?

A bit more detail:

Speech Debelle was booed by fans of Take That last night (November 25) when she attempted to rap the band's 1993 hit 'Pray'.

The Mercury Prize-winner was jeered off-stage at the launch of the boy band's new video game, SingStar.

Debelle, real name Corynne Elliot, reportedly upset the 500-strong audience with her cover, and when they booed, she said: “I'm a rapper. I don't do Take Shit.”

Her reaction prompted host and star of Gavin and Stacey James Corden to respond, saying: “That was shit, anyone can rap”.

It's quite amazing how bad BBC3 is, especially given that E4 has made a decent fist of being a specialist youth-oriented channel and has thrown up some terrific, non-patronising TV (the Inbetweeners and Misfits being the most recent examples).

You would hope that the Beeb could use BBC3 to try out a more diverse range of programmes, even within the remit of populist stuff aimed at a 16-30ish age group which I guess is the channel's purpose. So either there are very few people with interesting ideas out there, or the people in charge of commissioning have got a stupidly patronising view of the audience. Guess which one I reckon is the answer?

Twisted Hipster (Noodle Vague), Saturday, 28 November 2009 12:55 (nine years ago) link

Ideal, Nighty Night, and the Mighty Boosh are the only other programmes I can think of on BBC3 that I've watched/liked. Along with the odd episode of Family Guy, and also Torchwood which started off on BBC3.

I'm not entirely sure whether getting to stand up "in character" in a room full of people and tell Kelly Holmes she doesn't deserve a damehood just for running round a track is just show-off wish fulfilment, mildly entertaining, an indulgence of your status to allow you fire off some comedy zingers in a more ostentatious way than just doing stand-up, or just basically being a rude cnut to people's faces just because you can.

Is this guy really fucking everywhere? I've more or less managed to avoid him since he was in Fat Friends about a million years ago, apart from his twatty little outbursts when drunk which occasionally make the news.

James Corden stands for an awful lot of things that I despise, mainly bullying 'funny' ladism. I loathe his face, his manner, and even the shortest trailers for that f'ing Question of Sport thing that he does is enough to make me wallow in bitter misanthropy for the rest of the day. But seeing him in One Man, Two Guv'nors yesterday had me crying with laughter, admiring his wit, geniality and sensitivity to an audience, his immense capacity for genuinely funny clowning and physical humour. Yes, you could say that he's a good actor, which obscures the less palatable public personality, but it's not as simple as that; the play is clearly directed around James Corden - he's required numerous times to rely on his personality and stores of, to me generally non-existant, charm., and yet it was completely winning. Mysterious.

this show is pretty awful, isn't it? it's obvious that CBS got exactly what they wanted -- a show aping Jimmy Fallon's Tonight Show. only lacking Fallon's modestly redeeming qualities of earnestness and awkwardness. the result feels not just dumb but cynical.

corden has no evident rapport with reggie watts, an interesting and talented guy whose role on this show could be assumed by just about anyone (indeed, the best thing about the show is its theme tune). the band giggles on cue when corden makes one of his mirthless quips, but it's evidently forced.

the group discussion seldom pays dividents, since usually the conversation descends to the level of the lowest common denominator (which is often corden himself; witness his embarrassing refusal to talk to michael douglas about anything other than "basic instinct").

i was getting tired of craig ferguson's schtick by the end--and even complained that he was a smart guy who was deliberately playing that down--but boy do i miss him.

on the other hand, i get to sleep earlier these days.

he quipped with heat (amateurist), Friday, 1 May 2015 04:56 (four years ago) link

It's less Jimmy Fallon and more like a dumbed down version of Graham Norton (if that's even possible) for US network late night. I've only watched it 3 or 4 times so far, but he seems to know a lot of really famous people, or really famous people are comfortable around him at least. It's weird.

Maybe when they cancel him, Scott Thompson will finally get looked at for a hosting gig.

Johnny Fever, Friday, 1 May 2015 06:24 (four years ago) link

how are his ratings? even if he isn't doing well, I suspect CBS will probably keep him on for a few years.

one strange thing about the show is that somebody (corden? his producers? CBS?) seems to have decided that they should act as though the show has been around for a while. there's little reflexive acknowledgment that the show is new, segments are unfamiliar, etc. the confidence that reviewers noted seems to add to the show's feeling of slick indifference.

the biggest problem, though, is just corden's witlessness.

he quipped with heat (amateurist), Friday, 1 May 2015 06:46 (four years ago) link

i guess it's just too bad that soon the only laid-back genuine talk show on network late night may be seth fucking meyers. he's a total talentless nonentity--i've yet to meet anyone who has expressed even the slightest bit of enthusiasm for his show. it's soporific. but all the other shows seem to be more "variety show" than "talk show."

he quipped with heat (amateurist), Friday, 1 May 2015 06:48 (four years ago) link

I'm still fond of Fallon, though I appreciated the less formalized Late Night more than I do his Tonight Show. Everything about Seth Meyers' show is awful, though, from the monologue to the band to the scripted bits. Even the set sucks (still, even after a redesign). Come September, Stephen Colbert will be the oldest host with an 11:37 show, but even he seems like more of a gamesman than modern day Letterman. He should be a decent interviewer now that he no longer has to do it in character, though.

Johnny Fever, Friday, 1 May 2015 07:07 (four years ago) link

corden was pretty much loathed over in the uk by everyone except mainstream tv execs (could anyone say they were a fan of this guy?) so here's hoping america completely destroys him. 'mirthless' and lowest common denominator sums him up perfectly, just a dumb hateful guy who doesn't even pay lip service to 'smart'.

Robbie Williams (yes, other punchable cnut, I know) also reclaimed "come and have a go if you think you're hard enough" for Millennium.

And Fat Les (yes, punchable cnuts, I know) to thread.

Seven years after this post, and 20 years after the release, I think it worth noting for the record that ailsa was thinking of one of Lily Allen's dad's pre-Fat-Les contributions, alongside Joe Strummer, to Black Grape's football single "England's Irie."

Wait he's not kissing Sean Spicer? Eh he should fuck off anyway

I was agnostic on Corden until the one-two punch of the Spicer pic and the Peter Rabbit trailer. Now he can fuck off.

“Late Night” host Corden cornered Jeff Bezos, and was heard asking the Amazon founder’s wife, MacKenzie, “So you are the brains in the relationship, then?” Corden later told us of his conversation with billionaire Bezos, “You wouldn’t believe it, but we have a lot in common.”

I don't care about the royal wedding but there are relatives downstairs watching it on TV in the living room. I walked through there earlier and caught a few seconds. There was some guy solemnly playing cello. Then the camera cut to James Corden.

My mom has informed me on multiple occasions that she thinks it would be fun to kiw James Cordon

Mods, we need to change the thread title to "James Cordon shouldn't fuck off just yet"

I was quite looking forward to that new Danny Boyle film "yesterday" but Corden is all over the trailer and it's really put me off.

Proger, Wednesday, 22 May 2019 03:29 (five months ago) link

I didn't know anything about James Corden until that popbitch sitting next to a baby story made a second and third round. He seems unbearable in general.

Yerac, Wednesday, 22 May 2019 03:34 (five months ago) link

Like, i don't know why anyone pays him.

Yerac, Wednesday, 22 May 2019 03:34 (five months ago) link

I don't really care what he's like as a person, that Paul McCartney thing was great.
