It looks like The Late Late Show might be getting a band. CBS announced on Friday that Reggie Watts will be James Corden’s band leader when the new LLS starts in March. From The Hollywood Reporter article:
The musically inclined comedian and Comedy Bang! Bang! star will serve as Corden’s onstage sidekick as the bandleader of the new Late Late Show. Watts is no stranger to Late Night. He makes regular appearances on Conan, and Comedy Bang! Bang! is IFC’s own alt-comedy take on a talk show.
The new LLS will also include Mike Gibbons as co-executive producer and head writer. Mike is an LLS returning alum. He was the head writer for Craig Kilborn when Craig hosted the show.
