Late Late Show Highlights

Here were my favorite monologue jokes from last night’s Late Late Show with James Corden:

Tonight was the NCAA Championship between Wisconsin and Duke. Personally, as a Brit, I’ve been rooting for a team named “duke” throughout the whole thing.

A woman just won the right to serve divorce papers to her husband via Facebook. The judge allowed this because the only way she could get hold of him was through Facebook – which is ridiculous to me, cause if you want to find your estranged husband you should look on Tinder.

If people are getting Facebook divorces, I assume the next thing will be social media weddings. Will thou tag this woman to be thy friend, to share and to poke, from the start of your timeline, whether liked or reported, swiped right or swiped left, in trolling or trending, to heart and to fav, until the suspension of your profiles? If anyone can Snapchat a video showing why these two should not be LinkedIn, live stream now, or forever hold your tweets.

The comedy segment bit was “Sneakerheads Compete for Rare Air Jordans.” It was ok, but I’m recommending it because it was terrific to see James put himself out there on the streets of Los Angeles:

Dave Grohl, Jordana Brewster and Rainn Wilson were the couch guests. Dave is the lead singer of the Foo Fighters, Jordana is in the film Furious 7 and Rainn stars on the show Backstrom. Overall I thought the interview was good, but that’s an average of a week first half and a strong second half. While the guests themselves were fine, I continued having an issue with this thing of all the guests coming out at together and James focusing on one while the others sit around. It just seems so chaotic and unnecessary. But, I will say that once Dave and Rainn, and Jordana to a lesser extent, started to gel a little bit, having them all together was fun to watch. I just wish it hadn’t take so long to get there.

The other reason why the second half was great was the addition of Jonathan, the nude model. Bringing him out and having the guests sketch while being interviewed was brilliant. Here were my favorite clips. Not surprisingly, they’re from the later part of the interview:

Saint Motel was the musical guest. They gave a nice performance.

Entertaining show. I give it:
