British comedian and actor James Corden, famed for his role in the hit series "Gavin And Stacey," has humorously hinted at his latest venture, an all-male revue titled "Blond From Across The Pond," following his departure from "The Late Late Show." The 45-year-old star made this playful announcement while hosting a car auction at the prestigious Wynn’s Awakening Theatre in Las Vegas, in anticipation of the Formula 1 Las Vegas Grand Prix.
After a remarkable eight-year tenure on "The Late Late Show," where he became a household name by interviewing a plethora of Hollywood celebrities, Corden left the show in April. Known for his charismatic presence and comedic flair, he joked, “This is the first thing I have hosted since leaving my talk show – which aired at 12.37 am on CBS – so technically, this is the largest audience I’ve ever played to.
It’s great to be in Vegas, a statement people usually make when they've just arrived here."
Corden's New Ventures
Corden’s witty remark about his new project, an all-male revue, seemed to be a playful nod to the famed Australian dance troupe "Thunder From Down Under," with his version being the "Blond From Across The Pond." This announcement follows his recent move to SiriusXM, where he is set to host a weekly audio show featuring interviews with some of the world's most notable personalities.
In the world of luxury automobiles, Corden highlighted over $60 million worth of cars at the RM Sotheby’s F1 car auction. Notably, the first Mercedes Benz driven by seven-time world champion Lewis Hamilton in his 2013 victory was auctioned off for a staggering $17.1 million, following an intense bidding war.
Additionally, a piece of Formula 1 history was up for grabs with Michael Schumacher’s Ferrari race suit, worn during his triumphant 2003 Italian Grand Prix. The race suit, symbolic of Schumacher's pole position and subsequent championship win, was sold for $85,000.
The event, managed by auctioneer Oliver Barker, featured 39 lots under the hammer, showcasing a splendid array of automotive history and luxury. As Corden navigates his post-Late Late Show career, his unique blend of humor and charm continues to captivate audiences, whether on the small screen or the auction stage.
