Britain has always been terrible at American-style late night talk shows, but surprisingly good at exporting hosts for them (see also: John Oliver). This week, Brit James Corden brings his enormously popular The Late Late Show across the pond, to the Methodist Central Hall in Westminster, London. Opening the first of those shows (which are broadcast on Sky1 in the UK and to millions of American viewers on CBS), Corden discussed the recent terror attacks in London Bridge, the upcoming elections, and the beauty, diversity and fearlessness of Britain.
“It may be the worst weather in the world”, he smiles through the June rain, “but it’s still my favourite city.”
“I’m proud to show off [London’s] beauty, its diversity, and its stoic British determination to let nothing or anybody stand in our way.” pic.twitter.com/U3CvFNFHnu
