While constantly pursuing a great acting career, Corden just began to ascend to popularity in the 2000s.

Corden’s profile was further boosted by the stage performance of The History Boys in 2004, which led to a cameo in the film adaptation of the play.
James Corden took control of his career by co-writing and co-starring in his own original series, Gavin & Stacey. The sitcom was a huge hit, receiving high marks from reviewers. Corden was nominated for Oscars again, but this time he won.
The actor received a BAFTA for Best Male Comedy Performance and a British Comedy Award for a similar performance. Over its tenure, the show received multiple honors. Gavin & Stacey was canceled in 2010.
Gavin & Stacey
Prior to 2010, James Corden has been unable to use his newfound celebrity in projects outside of Gavin & Stacey. Although the actor endeavored to expand out and try new things while the program was on the air, the majority of his efforts were met with disdain and failure. As Gavin & Stacey ended, James Corden was free to devote more time to other, more significant ventures.
With his show, A League of Their Own, James Corden combined humor and sports journalism. The show centered on British football. In a number of sketches, James Corden has worked with the England national soccer squad. Fans of Doctor Who will recognize him as Craig Owens in several episodes. In 2010, he was cast as the lead in the film Gulliver’s Travels. He landed another important film part, this time in The Three Musketeers. In the same year, James Corden landed the main part in the smash hit play One Man, Two Guvnors. The show earned rave reviews from reviewers and was surely one of Corden’s career highlights.
The Late Late Show
Corden gained a wider international following after taking over as presenter of The Late Late Show from Craig Ferguson. The actor’s performance as a host has won him several Emmy nods and worldwide media acclaim.
Despite reports that Corden was dissatisfied with the “daily grind” of hosting a talk show, he renewed his contract in 2019. According to reports, the actor’s deal includes compensation of between $4 and $5 million. He now makes roughly $9 million per year from his many ventures.
Since 2011, James Corden has been a part of the Carpool Karaoke series, which began as a comedic spoof relating to Gavin & Stacey. The show features Corden and celebrity musicians singing karaoke while driving in traffic. Corden revived the comedy and utilized it as a frequent piece after taking over as host of The Late Late Show.
Adele appeared in one of the most popular Carpool Karaoke renditions. By 2020, the clip had received over 200 million views on YouTube. In 2016, it was also the most popular viral video on YouTube. Other celebrities that have been featured on The Late Late Show in Carpool Karaoke include Mariah Carey, Elton John, Britney Spears, Justin Bieber, Stevie Wonder, and numerous others.
In 2016, Apple Music struck an agreement to license the rights to a Carpool Karaoke adaptation for distribution under their umbrella.

Unlike The Late Late Show, Apple’s Carpool Karaoke has a different presenter for each episode, despite the fact that the idea is the same.
