James Corden has been one of the few British comedians that have been able to translate their success in their island home, to hit it big in Hollywood. He rose to world fame with his sketch "Carpool Karaoke". That running bit where he gets in a car with celebs and literally sings was one of the reasons he landed a gig in late night in the first place.
He's certainly had his issues in the past. Like potentially kissing President Trump's former press secretary Sean Spicer. For the most part, his jokes have not gotten him into too much hot water ... until now.
