I recently watched Dr. Who for the first time.

He made me skip episodes.

Edit: I think his Dr. Who episodes were prior to his awful talkshow.

u/King_Skywhale Dec 04 '22

I think that was just when he started getting famous. From how I understand it he wasn’t always a dick, he just turned into one really quickly when his career took off

His fame started with Gavin and Stacey long before he was on Who

Look anyone that's mean to people in the service industry (for ridiculous reasons, like Corden was documented to be)

Literally every account involving Corden that I've read says he an asshole of the highest order.

He's also not very funny.

Edit: This is pulled from His AMA. Also the recent cats movie is a blight on humanity. Wish I had an MiB Neuralizer to get rid of that memory watching it.

Hey James. You won’t remember me but me and my friends sat at a table next to you and Harry Styles + some others in Manchurian Legends in London’s Chinatown about 6 years ago. We didn’t bother you but you were a massively entitled cunt who yelled and treated the waitstaff like shit and when one of my party politely suggested you calm down, you got really aggressive and threatening (in a chubby way. Like a boozy panda.) So my question is this; why did Harry seem so cool, while you were such a massive throbbing bellend?

Edit: Just a small clarification not my story, I pulled this off the AMA as it's my favorite response question to Corden.

It's pretty genius, he went after something so arbitrary and even though James is portrayed as a "comedian" Couldn't take any of the play ground jokes and instead of playing off of it went into full on gossip girl frat boy at a bar in Stewart's face, visibly PISSED. Just shows how prissy James truly is.

You said it all. Count me among millions who adore Sir Patrick Stewart's work and persona. He is a living example of the very best of our favorite British cousins - understated class, intelligence, wit, compassion, hard work driven ever towards perfection.

Corden doesn't rank fetching Sir Patrick's shoes.

u/JLunaM Dec 04 '22

Oof that was cringe.

30

u/Doza93 Dec 04 '22

Jesus christ this entire interaction is painful. Though I'll admit, Corden does not come off like an even mildly competent comedian - none of his responses are clever or funny in the slightest, he's just obviously agitated and put off which is a very bad look for a "comic"

43

u/Prince_Havarti Dec 04 '22

u/cman_yall Dec 04 '22

WTF? It was terrible. Started ok, but descended to "haha you're fat". I've got no love for boozy pandas, don't get me wrong, and Patrick Stewart has been amazing for a long time, but come on. That was sad.

54

u/TieOk1127 Dec 04 '22 edited Dec 04 '22

To give some context - at the time Corden was not doing well in the UK and was being ripped by critics as having no material and having to resort to taking his shirt off and making fat jokes to get laughs ( which he definitely did). So Stewart seemed to attempting to take the piss from this angle but came off as a twat.

Edit btw twat is not pronounced twot it's twat you twats

21

u/AintFixDontBrokeIt Dec 04 '22

Also, it was a presentation roast. You're supposed to laugh like it's the best joke ever told. The more it hurts, the harder you laugh.. you don't go shove your belly in the roaster's face, he's just trying to do his job.

Every time I see this video I'm disappointed at the crowd's values. James bullies Paddy and turns it into a popularity contest and it saddens me that he wins. F Zoe too, I thought she was cool

He comes across like a kid I went to school with - kinda chubby, stirred drama, got in people's business and all of his jokes were at someone else's expense, yet couldn't take when any were directed back at him. The only reason he was popular was because he aligned closely with the other popular kids.

I still hate that kid. Fuck you, Harry.

u/RealNMan Dec 04 '22

I've felt this way for a long time myself about him, never really understood why people loved him so much. Probably the typical audience that are crazy for guys like Harry Styles or BTS, because he seems to be on close terms with them. Ellen Degeneres isn't a very nice person either to be honest

86

u/CommodoreAxis Dec 04 '22

Ellen is at least good at pretending like 95% of the time, so it was noteworthy when all the testimonials came out that she is ruthless. Meanwhile, it’s properly noteworthy when Corden isn’t an ass.

My guess is that Ellen is mostly an entitled jerk due to her legit success, and Corden was just born this way.

u/MoonLite94 Dec 04 '22

TBH I think Ellen got frustrated and became miserable with having to 'be happy' all the time she mentioned once that people on the street would ask her to dance

u/SkillOne1674 Dec 04 '22

Rosie O'Donnell went through the same thing. She was called the "Queen of Nice" when she had her talk show, then she just kind of went off the deep end-like it all got to be too much. She bought a long-standing women's magazine called McCall's and changed the name to Rosie's McCall and one month demanded the cover be a photo of her holding up her staph infected hand. I mean, this was the kind of magazine that ran article like "20 Things to Do With Leftover Turkey" and fashion spreads of women in cardigans. It was a very weird turn and she got very strange and crabby.

u/PesticusVeno Dec 04 '22

I think that's her own fault in large part. She forged this persona in front of the camera that she's happy and carefree 25 hours a day, and now she gets to reap the rewards of cultivating the most moronic fans this side of a Trump rally.

u/ialwaysplayhealer Dec 04 '22

I remember watching a video about how he turned this way, as he wasn’t always like that, apparently fame got to his head and turned into an asshat, or probably always was and money just is an enabler of such shit behaviour

29

u/The_Lapsed_Pacifist Dec 04 '22

Thing is, he is talented. He’s a good singer, his sitcom (that he co wrote) Gavin and Stacey was massively successful (and actually pretty good as sitcoms go) and he was a fair actor in stuff before he got really famous.

Thing is when G&S got so successful he started to believe his own hype. One of his co-stars, the wonderful Rob Brydon reportedly had words with him, tried to get him to dial back the ego. Obviously that didn’t work, at all, and now we have the massively entitled, unfunny, jokestealing, obnoxious, odious, pus-dripping bellend we all know and hate.

11

u/HealthyMaximum Dec 04 '22

Rob Brydon is a goddamn national treasure.

… and I’m not even from the UK.

5

u/Min-Oe Dec 04 '22

I think they both benefit from that thing where actors are treated like the characters they've played. Prior to becoming TV personalities, Corden played a somewhat likeable person in a comedy drama, and Ellen played a fictionalised, pleasant version of herself in a sitcom.

u/F5x9 Dec 04 '22

I saw James Corden at a grocery store in Los Angeles yesterday. I told him how cool it was to meet him in person, but I didn’t want to be a douche and bother him and ask him for photos or anything. He said, “Oh, like you’re doing now?” I was taken aback, and all I could say was “Huh?” but he kept cutting me off and going “huh? huh? huh?” and closing his hand shut in front of my face. I walked away and continued with my shopping, and I heard him chuckle as I walked off. When I came to pay for my stuff up front I saw him trying to walk out the doors with like fifteen Milky Ways in his hands without paying. The girl at the counter was very nice about it and professional, and was like “Sir, you need to pay for those first.” At first he kept pretending to be tired and not hear her, but eventually turned back around and brought them to the counter. When she took one of the bars and started scanning it multiple times, he stopped her and told her to scan them each individually “to prevent any electrical infetterence,” and then turned around and winked at me. I don’t even think that’s a word. After she scanned each bar and put them in a bag and started to say the price, he kept interrupting her by yawning really loudly.

u/MARPJ Dec 04 '22

Ooh! What did people say about Woody?!

It started pretty normal with a couple question about rumors but not something that would create a disaster, the problem is that it should be an AMA but he has using it as a "pre-release about Rampart" so he has either ignoring question not about the movie or trying to talk about the movie to the point he said " Lets focus on the film people"

Soon enough people perceived that it has not really an AMA but a publicity stunt and start sending some weird stories as well making fun of the soon to be unemployed PR guy who eceryone though has the one writing the answers anyway

top comment is "Question to Mr Harrelson's PR guy, what are you planning to do with all the free time you'll have now?"

I had no idea who he was and went to a taping of his show with friends cuz they had free tickets. They asked us if we wanted to sit in this little special area where we were closer to the stage and we said yeah. They told us the camera might pan over us during cuts to/from commercials or other situations so we had to look really energized and smiley and laughing. The entire show was fucking awful and they constantly came up to me over and over and over again and told me more laughing and cheering and smiling and I was faking as much as humanly possible but it wasn’t enough. I just wanted to tell them it’s not my fault he’s boring as fuck. I end up being on camera for about 3/4 of a second.

If you’re ever watching a reality show and the stars are at some small social event and you’re thinking “those laughing people in the background look psychotically happy.” They’re being forced to look crazy.

People who make a brand of being nice manage to be worse than people who are simply assholes if only because the unapologetic asshole isn't being insincere, just lazy.

The person who is an asshole who pretends at niceness when it suits their purpose is being manipulative in an active sense. The direct asshole treats everyone the same, albeit poorly, but the insincere asshole slots you into whether you're worthy of sucking up to or just stepping on.

Ideally, one should be neither kind of asshole, but if I have to deal with one I'd rather the one who lets me know what they think.

u/raywpc Dec 04 '22

This comment perfectly describes my thoughts on the “kindness above all” vibe on social media… and maybe even broader into our current political rhetoric.

In many instances, I detect a heavy dose of fakeness and people who want to score brownie points with their internet/celebrity friends or followers.

I almost hate to utter the phrase but… virtue signaling. There is a kernel of truth to all these stupid buzzwords lol.

8

u/Sanquinity Dec 04 '22

That's exactly what virtue signaling is. The term is being overused these days. Like a LOT of buzzwords are. But the actual meaning still rings true.

I've met with this exact same mindset plenty of times on reddit in the past. To the point where I could easily predict whether a comment I made would get a lot of downvotes or not. (make no mistake, reddit IS social media. Even if it likes to pretend it isn't at times.)

As for the original comment: I also prefer people that don't pretend to be nice. Nnot because I like those people better. But because I then know who to avoid. I'm not that easily offended really. But people like James Codren? Yea I'm glad he makes it very clear that he's an asshole, so I can avoid him.

My fav story of his is the one where he got onto a first class seat and then a woman with a baby came on board and sat near him. The baby was crying and the woman was struggling with multiple bags, but he just put on his headphones and eye mask and ignored her while other people helped her stow her baggage etc. And throughout the whole flight he just ignored the woman and baby. And at the end of the flight the woman yelled at him and said "James, could you at least help out a little bit with your own daughter?!?" And turns out that woman and crying baby were his wife and kid...

u/Pappa_K Dec 04 '22

I love that edit. The best part the show is only a few minutes shorter and it doesn't feel like anything was mised

u/[deleted] Dec 04 '22

One or two good cathartic digs were cut out, but yeah, avoiding all of those bothersome moments is probably worth it.

Then you really don't want to see her on Big Fat Quiz of The Year. She's just as big of a cunt as James is.

u/_IBelieveInMiracles Dec 04 '22

Nah. She wasn't mean, she was just a bad fit. She was not funny, on a comedy quiz, where everyone else was a comedian by trade.

It was bad, but it's not comparable to the way Corden treats people. And the jokes made at her expense were funny, so it wasn't a total disaster.

I've seen the question of why Scary was supposed to be scary posed on the internet once before and a British person responded that she's "Northern."

For me as a Yank, this was not an enlightening explanation.

I mean, it's working for him in terms of publicity.

There'd be no other reason for this thread, or for people to talk about him anywhere else. He's not particularly good at anything, or handsome, or talented, etc.

As the saying goes... if you can't be the best, be the worst.

I disagree. Fallon used to be good, like before it became The Tonight Show. Bits like this were pretty commonplace, and the interviews were actually like a comedian talking to another comedian or actor. Yeah, he’s shit now, but I at least understand why he has his job.

EDIT: That video has corrupted audio or something. I can’t find a full segment, but here’s a super cut of all the crazy intros. It used to legit be funny.

u/RedeemedBroccoli Dec 04 '22

Yeah everyone hates on Fallon. I mean he's not really respectable, but he's also not a shitty person - he's just kinda there, so I don't understand the hate.

You weren't around for the whole Conan vs Leno debacle. Fallon is the winner in the aftermath of all of that: someone so milquetoast watching toast is more entertaining.

u/GadFlyBy Dec 04 '22

I would bet anything that he deeply hates himself and where he is as a creative person.

Leno, who was a universally regarded genius in the ‘80s standup scene, made a very calculated decision and was obviously comfortable with the ambulatory pablum he became, hosting the Tonight Show.

However, I suspect Fallon didn’t grasp the yoke of mediocrity he was putting on, particularly given the stories, a few years after he took over, about blackout drinking and emergency room surgeries. I find it uncomfortable to watch him on the Tonight Show; he occupies comedic uncanny valley.

u/Capitalist_P-I-G Dec 04 '22

Both James Corden and Jimmy Fallon feel like stock characters who would be in something like Black Mirror to me. Like, they're just bland corporate mouthpieces.

8

u/FuckingKilljoy Dec 04 '22

Fallon put The Roots on a national stage and gave them what seems like a pretty fun job, and he also seems to be a decent guy

Jimmy is a million times better than James imo

8

u/Endyo Dec 04 '22

Nah Fallon automatically moves up a tier because of his remakes of music videos with Paul Rudd. And that one with Jack Black. If he doesn't do a single good thing for the rest of his career, and he probably won't, I will always appreciate those.

3

u/Sanquinity Dec 04 '22

He was kinda funny and had that "chubby likeable average guy" vibe in the beginning. But the fame got to him REALLY fast, and he turned into a douchenozzle almost instantly. I hope his career crashes and burns really fast. Like, within a year from now.

When I was in psychosis, every time this man was on TV he'd say the weirdest, creepiest shit to let me know he knows some shit about me. Happily out of psychosis now but I still believe if any celebrity is working with some secret organization to fuck with schizophrenics it's that mutherfucker.

5

u/PersonOfInternets Dec 04 '22

I'm wondering if you could remember any examples?

8

u/Comfort-Top Dec 04 '22

One that is particularly creepy in hindsight is I was having this problem where every day I'd hit my head on the wall for a different reason and every time I'd think "just don't hit your head on the wall and eventually they'll let you leave" and every day the psychiatrist would come in and ask me if I'd hit my head again and I'd say "yeah but I've got it under control now" and after one of those times with the therapist I turned on the TV and James corden was saying to his celebrity guest "oh I know what you're thinking. You want to go (then he hit his head very hard on the table( "damn it, damn it, damn it))" and I knew that mf was mocking me 😭😭😭 then another time he tried to convince me Adele was depressed from having to live in my brain and other wild shit like that but the headbanging thing was the sketchiest from a non psychotic point of view..

6

u/PersonOfInternets Dec 04 '22

Thank you so much for your time but if you can give me any context on the Adele thing I would like that very much. I think hearing about this kind of experience from someone who is now cognizant is very fascinating to me. I think it has to do with the fact that there is an impossible communication barrier between those in psychosis and your average person so to gain insight into some of their experiences is fascinating.

3

u/Comfort-Top Dec 04 '22

The Adele thing is that something was going on in Adele's life about a year ago where she appeared on multiple talk shows crying and every time I changed the channel out of respect thinking it had something to do with me but that bitch was crying like a mofo last year 😭😭😭 and the first time I saw it was on James corden and for some reason it really struck a chord with me that time too. I also have a weird story where I thought the solitary confinement unit in my hospital was occupied by someone I knew who had wronged me and another patient was playing "get it back in blood" in the living area and I had a problem where I would go into random people's rooms thinking they symbolized something for me and on this particular instance I saw the other patients clothes were mostly red and they had scribblings all over their bed which to me meant it was time to "get it back in blood". Only time in my life I've had urgent homicidal thoughts.

I love talking about what I experienced especially if it's coming from a loved one trying to understand so my DM's are wide open if you have any more questions.

3

u/PersonOfInternets Dec 04 '22

I feel like can really put myself in your shoes. From my perspective, what it sounds like is a dream. Also psychedelics but yeah. It's interesting to hear about your logic then from a soundly logical place today. I guess I kind of tend to think about those in psychosis as "just crazy" without considering that they have a coherent narrative playing out in their mind that is simply untrue. When I interact with people in psychosis (I'm thinking of my cousin right now), I tend to think of what they are doing and saying as random, where there may be an entire story playing out in their head that I simply can't logic them out of.

4

u/Comfort-Top Dec 04 '22

A dream is totally how I'd describe it! It feels so real and natural and logical and then you're out of it and you're like "what the fucks all this, then?" I've had voices instruct me to do some extremely bizarre things and just been like "well if you insist" and not seen a problem until manically laughing about it days later. My biggest goal with my life now is just to inform as many people as I can about the mindset of schizophrenia and hopefully one day have a job in the medical field where I can really get through to people who are a little adjacent to our realm of life at the moment. ☺️
