(James Corden)

Top talk show host and entertainer James Corden is coming to M-Net from September 18.

Corden created the biggest YouTube viral video of 2016, turned Carpool Karaoke into a pop culture phenomenon, has several British comedy and acting awards on his resume and nabbed the Emmy award for Outstanding Interactive programme in 2016, the first year he spearheaded the US Late Late Show. Now, the inimitable and highly talented James Corden will ensure that M-Net viewers have smiles on their faces when they tune into the channel of magic at 17h00 Mondays to Fridays.

The Late Late Show with James Corden will start on M-Net on September 18.

“Don’t be misled by the words ’Late Late’ in the show’s title,” says M-Net’s Head of Publicity, Lani Lombard. “Even though the programme is broadcast late in the evening in the US., it’s the perfect entertainment to put you in a good mood for the bumper prime-time offering each night. M-Net continues to bring you the very best entertainment from around the globe and we’re thrilled to add this trendy programme to our schedule.”

While The Late Late Show with James Corden became famous for its Carpool Karaoke with number one selling artists like Adele, Will Smith, Usher and many more, it is also frequented by a mix of celebrity guests and showcases Corden’s extraordinary comic talent in musical acts, games and sketches.

The multi-faceted British born performer’s accomplishments span award-winning routines in television, theatre, film and on the comedy stage. He is a Tony Award-winning performer on Broadway, a BAFTA-winning star of a UK television series, a feature film actor, and an acclaimed host, writer and producer in several genres of television.

The Late Late Show will move into the M-Net slot that was previously occupied by The Ellen DeGeneres Show, which will move to Vuzu (116) M-Net’s sister channel from September 11.

Until James makes his debut on M-Net on September 18, M-Net viewers can enjoy Celebrity Family Feud season 3. The popular game show will see celebs face off against each other for charity and is hosted by Steve Harvey.
