British born comedian and talk show host James Corden grace December and January cover issue of Fast Company Magazine. James is the host of The Late Late Show and it's spin off show The Carpool Karaoke on Apple Music, which it become an instant success since from day. Carpool Karaoke was well received by comedy loving fans and online media consumers.
“When you’re trying to put together a show like this, you’re searching for the things that will define it,” Corden says. “With David Letterman, it’s ‘Top Ten Lists’; with Jay Leno, it’s ‘Jaywalking’; with Jimmy Kimmel, it’s ‘Mean Tweets.’ So Ben Winston and I were thinking, ‘We’re in L.A. All anyone talks about is the traffic. Remember that thing we did for Comic Relief with George Michael singing in a car? “Carpool Karaoke”!’ But we had no idea how popular it would be.”
“Talk-show host could be the easiest job in the world, if you wanted it to be.” Corden says. “monologue, desk bit, chat with a comedian, good night, and you’re done. But that’s not the sort of show I want to do.”
James married to Julia Carey in 2012, the couple has three children. He is a supporter of Premier League football club West Ham United.

And what helps is doing all this other stuff. I know that if I didn’t seek out and do things outside of this show, I’d lose my creative mojo. And I don’t want that to happen.” - James Corden⠀ ⠀ Head to FastCompany.com for more on “The Late Late Show” host and “Carpool Karaoke” creator @j_corden.⠀ ⠀ [Photo: @jucophoto]
