James Corden turns to stand-up
Gig in Cardiff tonight
James Corden is trying his hand at stand-up.
The Gavin and Stacey star is performing a 15-minute set at the Glee Club in Cardiff tonight, trying out new material.
He is currently down the road in Port Talbot, making a film of Britain's Got Talent star Paul Potts' life, One Chance, with Mackenzie Crook.
He tweeted: ‘I’m gonna be doing a little spot @thegleeclub in Cardiff tonight. Come down if you fancy it! Be lovely to see you X #mightbeawful!’
He is not known for stand-up, as he shot to fame through his acting – although he performed in Channel 4’s Comedy Gala in 2010 and has appeared at several other charity benefits in recent years.
The three-time Brit award host also performed a short set at the Comedy Store in London earlier this year while appearing in the hit play One Man, Two Guvnors at the National Theatre.
However his publicist said: 'I don't think there are any future plans set for stand-up comedy. James is working on two films and additionally early next year will film his BBC series The Wrong Mans, so he is very busy for the foreseeable months.'
