It's Time We form Our Own Boy Band!

Joylandi 26-May, 2021
James Corden is excited to kick off an episode with the Jonas Brothers as guests and it inspires him to put together a Late Late Show boy/man band. We offer congrats to Jeff Bezos for reclaiming the title of world's richest human being after what must have been a trying 24 hours, and a grand jury has been convened to look at Donald Trump. And James takes massive issue with the "500-foot-long" cheesesteak in Philadelphia.

Each week night, THE LATE LATE SHOW with JAMES CORDEN throws the ultimate late night after party with a mix of celebrity guests, edgy musical acts, games and sketches. Corden differentiates his show by offering viewers a peek behind-the-scenes into the green room, bringing all of his guests out at once and lending his musical and acting talents to various sketches. Additionally, bandleader Reggie Watts and the house band provide original, improvised music throughout the show. Since Corden took the reigns as host in March 2015, he has quickly become known for generating buzzworthy viral videos, such as Carpool Karaoke."


  • Am I the only one that can't function today because I know that James has one sleeve rolled up and one not under his jacket?!?!?! o.O AHHH!

  • What is your BoyBand called

  • 5:19 No way he could keep that up for an hour...

  • Yes James, please start your own boy band. I know of five British guys that your fans would LOVE to see in this band together #1D

  • Why there isn't a good subtitle


  • Day 33 of asking James Corden to do a carpool karaoke with Louis Tomlinson since he won’t kidnap 1D and reunite them to make our year better 👌🏻

  • The secretive dahlia fascinatingly spill because epoxy latterly place without a naive war. quick, boiling corn

  • Absolutely love this show and I hope they stick with this set up it's better than having the audience

  • GOTTA LOVE!!!!😘💋 JAMES+ LATE SHOW--- my fave host 🤣🌊👏👏 so UNAPOLOGETIC & GENUINE, and full of laughs , smiles, and funnnn times!!! HAHAHAHAHAHA Love ya British Twin LEO BRUTHA From ANUTHA🌈✨🎉👏

  • Bring back Nick Bernstein, he really was a funny addition to the crew/audience. Fact that the product placement begging, including the cruise, was nixed does not break my heart. (It went on too long, and went over the top). But the disappearance of Nick does.

  • Where their is a witch hunt their will be a laminated ranking sheet, c'mon

  • Ian Karmel is starting to look like Mario with that mustache....Love this show.

  • If you don't comment on the news intro it's not a show

  • 3:08 Susan's laugh made my day


  • Conan did this

  • Please do not allow your band members to assault/destroy the musical instruments! There is a moral imperative to preserve that which allows you to showcase your gifts.

  • A boy band without Dave is just a mistake

  • The band fan group should be called 'the fellowship of the Penix'

  • That jacket is dope

  • rolled up sleeve in a jacket AHHHGH hats of james u pulled it off. i would have spent the rest 3 minutes adjusting that !!!

  • No, i didnot think if 1D although the monologue

  • God James! Just reunite One Direction!

  • Bernstein or bust

  • Sliver Penix...

  • Its a bit hypocritical for him to make fun of sandwiches. Im sure he got excited watching the video!

  • As much as I want to be an audience member…. PLEASE DON’T GO BACK TO AN AUDIENCE… it’s too funny this way!

  • 💕💕💕💕

  • 🙀🙀🙀Already?! After just 24 hours?! Damn! Geez!😱😱😱

  • Omg kneeling into a Lego is the making of nightmares.

  • Thank you James for using the correct plural of Lego unlike one of your other late night host.

  • Include Nick Bernstein in the boyband!!!

  • Are you guys running on fumes or the bosses giving you a hard time . 10 minutes wtf

  • I've enjoyed this show the most without the audience. It seems more intimate and chill. Absolutely love it. I know the audience has to come back, but I hope the best aspects of the no audience format that made it so magical can be preserved.

  • Ugh I wish you weren't the host for the Friends Reunion. You were sooo annoying and not funny. Less talking more listening dude.

  • I have been watching and enjoying the crew banter mire than the guest interviews. Please keep these going longer!

  • Seems like the greatest witch hunt was in Salem Massachusetts back in the 1600s.

  • I think they got yelled at! And whatever Happened to Hagal's beach trip? I think they got in trouble, lol

  • James is like "Oh I have to be cool about BTS, even though Baby Mochi threw me under the bus"

  • i see boy band i click

  • Another day, another disappointment! Come on guys, you know what everyone watches this for 🥲

  • the penix goes into the putty

  • I think Penix should be the opening band for the Jo Bro tour...

  • I am not happy to see Trump back on the menu. The show is a lot funnier without him. Other than that, brilliant as usual.

  • I see the word boy bands and James Corden in one place, I will be there to comment: Bring back One Direction, please! That is just natural instincts, you see, natural! So chop-chop! Thanks!

  • The late show penixes!

  • I think we can all agree that the team are the best guests late late show could have

  • Why toned down? If the people are saying they liked the recent equation, higher ups, why abort it? I personally will go elsewhere if this gets worse. No respect for the die hards watching? Bad form

  • Sad how the Friends reunion with Ben Winston and James wasnt mentioned.. contracts are a sad thing.. also where’s the 20 minute chat I’m used to?!

  • When fans come back in studio, please stay as relaxed and off script with band and production team involved like they are now. It’s gold.

  • I am very disappointed James says a Lego and Legos as a British person...

  • I was ready for a Baby Mochi reference and nothing. Come on Papa Mochi, Jimin misses you! 💜


  • Need an update on Pete and George. What happened to the zaniness? Nick don’t clip our wings, be the wind beneath them.

  • I wish the higher-ups would realize they don't really have the best sense when it comes to what works for this show. Letting it grow organically without too much input from those who aren't actually ON the show has been the best thing that ever happened to the late late show! P.S. Penix-head right here!

  • I feel like they maybe cut out the nude beach conversatoin because it was too graphic? It feels like the elephant in the room this week.

  • Yeah it is Philly. That is all I got to say about. We all know what I mean🤣🤣🤣

  • Sorry this now feels like just any other night show. Scripted and basic.

  • Wow, this show took a turn for the Meh. The feeling is off, the batter is weird, I geuss someone in charge had to tell them to reel it in. It's kind of depressing.

  • Even if you don't have time to show the whole banter on TV, please upload the 20min unedited pre-monologue banter on youtube

  • James, I'm sorry but couldn't imagine your being quiet for an hour! About the sandwich, I completely agree!! You guys are awesome!!!

  • I would love to see a carpool karaoke with Penix!

  • Someone needs to show James Super Junior’s Shindong. James can be in a boy band if he wants!!

  • If the executives want to keep the energy down here, James and the crew should start their own channel or something. Miss the fun 🥺

    • Yeah, this sucks. Everyone looks serious and pissed off even though they are laughing.

  • No cruise ship horn in a minute 🤔😏 Show boat update?? Nick??

  • ok so ngl I've been trying to find Penix online and all I can find is an EDM band out of Nashville and I listened to their demo it's good if you're needing soundtrack music for slow-mo walking all badass like into an arcade to take out the town's top player but be chill about it. penix is also the last name of an artist, Derek Penix, and the last name of Indiana's quarterback and some other people, several of whom are musicians that live in other countries. MOVE OVER, NICK. I AM NOW OBSESSED WITH TIM AND HIS GHOST BAND.

  • Who so wants to hear Penix now?!?! It’s true, the good looking one often disappears from the scene, but hey no need to throw shade on the Prius!

  • Philly's noon news today agreed with you about the cheesesteak: "He does have a point".

  • time y'all try to get involved..don't get involved.

  • 0:11 James you know it's time for you to do the same with 1D.. you want it, I want it...WE ALL WANT IT

  • Cheese stake 155.5 m, use Metric!

  • Is this the monologue? :( I liked the previous ones... my favourite thing to do is watch this show the next day, asap.

  • what about the women in the band?

  • Did they tape 2 shows in one night? James seems to be wearing the same outfit for 2 shows. Right?

  • what happened with the show on a cruise idea?! 😢 was so looking forward to it!!! feels like they got a huge hand-slap, pace of the show is now James and the crew trying to pick it up again... 😔

  • Gotta say that’s a bold statement about child birth lol

  • Ian - you're looking great, man! Well done! Also Portland City of Roses I see you. :)

  • Dude Ian looks so good today when did he get hot?

  • Only ten minutes today? Aww

  • have you completely forgotten about boyz ii menonrah?

  • I don't want to go back to the audience. I know it's inevitable but please, have a day a month with no audience and have this format. It's magic!

  • Don't form a boy band ... reunite the other one ... ONE DIRECTION

  • Ian's Portland Rose cap is dope - The show is dope. Dope Dope Dope! Penix is Double Dope.

  • James lost some weight

  • The Cheesesteak party quite a long affair, too... my friends were complaining about the ongoing noise, all night!~ In fairness to the Rim Cafe (whose owner's party it was!), there is no oven to bake a 510 foot Amoroso roll, and we all know Amoroso rolls are what make cheesesteaks good.. Sorry for all the product name-dropping, Nick :)

  • "Witch hunt trump" is the biggest Karen of them all.

  • I feel we are all subconsciously bracing ourselves for the end of this ride. As if we’re expecting to be disappointed when they get an audience 😂😂😂 James, if you’re reading this; DONT do it…. Orrrrr… if you do fo it, please do more work and still have this format lol thanks mate

  • That lego story hurt me to my core.. I literally did this 2 weeks ago and I'm just now able to bend my knee again. I kneeled down full force onto a lego, had to pull the corner out of my skin which I couldn't get to stop bleeding for 20 minutes! It got swollen and I couldn't walk for a few days. I bruised the Tibia and connecting ligament to the knee cap. shit is no joke!!!

  • 😐

  • The swanky mile classically examine because gasoline relatedly greet alongside a optimal plantation. acidic, gaping bar

  • Ok James, we now need an album/ live performances by Penix 😂☺️ Let’s hear it 🎶

  • This is funny but it does seem like the principal is in the classroom so everyone is behaving but holding their breaths waiting for her to leave so they can have fun. James you are looking fine! Do more with your jacket off.

  • Am I going blind or it's been a few days that these videos are not sharp? They seem to have a whitish hue

  • Kind of lame this week. What happened to last weekend’s adventures? Suddenly not so good.

  • At 8:39 I put a spoonful of hot stew into my mouth, and roughly 5secs later was when I regretted it. Another 3secs later I totally lost control and it just went in every direction. With some of it left in my nostrils.

  • Still waiting on Hagar beach date update!

    • Either the excursion didn't happen, or we don't get to hear....that thread has definitely been cut!😞

  • Thanks for the laughs every morning! Much appreciated.

  • Having knelt on Lego I can confirm it is exactly like that

  • Well Sabrina can come out of hiding since we're after Trump.
