When it comes to late-night talk shows, there’s always something unexpected happening. And in a recent episode of “The Late Late Show with James Corden,” the surprises came in full force.

During the opening banter, James Corden and his guest, Reggie Watts, discussed their weekends. James shared that he had a fantastic time with his dance music project, Wahada Wajada, performing at a warehouse gig and a legendary 120-year-old club in Denver. Meanwhile, Reggie revealed that he spent the weekend in Miami, attending the Formula One race.

However, Reggie’s journey to Miami wasn’t as smooth as expected. After landing, an unexpected lightning storm forced everyone to stay on the airplane for an hour and a half. Finally off the plane, Reggie met his driver, Neville, who initially didn’t recognize him as James Corden. Neville admitted that he thought James Corden was just another celebrity.

As they hit the road, Neville made an unusual request. He asked Reggie if he could sing to him. Thinking it was a joke, Reggie agreed jokingly. But to his surprise, Neville showcased an incredible voice as they serenaded each other to Michael Bublé’s “Summer Wind.” Reggie even captured the impromptu duet on video.

The journey continued with a series of misadventures. Neville missed multiple exits or turns, leading to frustration and confusion. They ended up driving around in circles, unable to find their hotel. Finally, after singing Lionel Richie’s “All Night Long,” they stumbled upon their destination.

Back in the studio, James shared the story, expressing his relief and humor in imagining a Liam Neeson-style rescue mission if Reggie hadn’t arrived safely. James also couldn’t resist teasing Reggie about his unique dance moves on the streets of Miami.

In addition to the entertaining anecdote, James Corden also covered other news topics. President Biden signing the Ukraine Lend Lease Act, a plan to increase access to affordable high-speed internet, and First Lady Jill Biden’s surprise visit to Ukraine were among the headlines discussed.

And, of course, no episode of “The Late Late Show” would be complete without laughter. James engaged with the audience, making them clap and applaud at will, showing just how easily he can get them to participate.

To add to the excitement, the show wrapped up with a talk about the recent Kentucky Derby. James congratulated Rich Strike, an 80-1 long shot, for the stunning comeback victory. Although Nick Bernstein, a horse racing fan, admitted he hadn’t bet on the race, the thrilling finish brought everyone to their feet.

As the episode came to an end, James couldn’t help but have a playful exchange with the audience. He brought up a news story about workers at an espresso plant in Switzerland finding $50 million worth of cocaine in a coffee shipment. James humorously commented on the purity of the cocaine, providing a hilarious rendition of how the testing process might have gone.

It was undoubtedly an eventful episode of “The Late Late Show with James Corden.” From Reggie’s amusing journey with an unexpected singing driver to discussions about current events, it was a night filled with entertainment and laughter.
